              Weekly Update
                            October 17, 2010
                            PLEASE HELP!
This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and
Nobody.

There was an important job to be done in our Pack and Dens, and Everybody was
sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody
wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody
could have done.

Please take a few moments to sign up to help – fill the open positions at the Pack
level, and call your Den Leader and ask what you can do to help! Our Cub Scout
program only works when everyone steps in to lend their talents. We are
struggling to keep up with the demands of running an exceptional program for 75+
Cub Scouts, and we need you.




                             TO HELP OUR PACK!
                                                                                1
Here’s this week’s update of all of the things going on in our Cub Scouting world.

Website
Most information about our Pack can be found on the website: www.bsapack883.org. Please
refer to the website for information about our activities, and please consider using the RSS feed
as a way to keep informed of updates to the website without having to check it every day. An
archive of Weekly Updates is maintained on the Pack website.

Fast Fact
The word “moose” comes from the native Algonquian word meaning “twig eater.”

Recharter – DUE DATE APPROACHING

The rechartering packet from Committee Chair, Diane Wolf is attached. Please be sure to get
your recharter forms and fees to Diane on or before the October Pack Meeting. You may
mail your forms and payment to Diane at 1251 Guilford Road, Eldersburg, Maryland 21784.

Pack Meeting Update
There will be a major change to the October Pack Meeting – in light of the logistics of holding a
Halloween Party with games and activities for 75+ Cub Scouts and their siblings (between 125
and 150 people), we have changed the theme of the meeting to Fall Festival. The boys should
wear their uniforms to the meeting – not Halloween costumes. The meeting will still occur
on Friday, October 29 at 7:00 PM at St. Joseph. As usual, please be at the meeting by 6:45 PM
so we can start right at 7:00 PM.

It’s going to be a great night of really fun activities for Cub Scouts and families:

   • Bonfire, storytelling, and songs with Mrs. Markosky from Eldersburg Elementary School
         o Please bring a blanket to sit on when you are outside by the campfire
   • Dancing with Mr. K from Eldersburg Elementary School
   • Face painting with Mrs. Habicht
         o Please email Erin Habicht (erinluv1222@gmail.com) if you can help.
   • Fresh apple crisp and ice cream with Mrs. Jermann
         o Barb Jermann is handling the details, but she needs 2 or 3 volunteers to help bake
             and serve the apple crisps and ice cream. You would need to arrive at St.
             Joseph's Church by 6:30 PM. If you are interesting in helping, please contact Barb
             at bjermann@verizon.net or 410-442-7706.

We need a ton of help to pull this off! If you can help, please email Marc Fischer as soon as
possible at marc.fischer@transwestern.net.




                                                                                               2

Campership Program
A Campership Fund is available to help families defray the cost of the Cub Scout program,
including Pack dues, uniforms, and activities.

Pack T-Shirts
All Cub Scouts and leaders are issued a Pack t-shirt when they join our Pack. If you are a new
Cub Scout or an adult leaders and you did not receive a shirt when you signed up, please see
Lynn Kalmbach at the next Pack Meeting so we can issue your shirt! Additional t-shirts (for
family members or as “spares”) can be purchased for $10 each at the table set up at each Pack
Meeting

Coordinator: Lynn Kalmbach

                                                                                                               3
Recruiting
Does your son have friends who are interested in joining Pack 883? Now is the time to get
them involved! We are recruiting boys at all levels. Please encourage your son to talk with his
friends about Cub Scouts.

o Recruiting contest details:
   o During the recruiting period (from September through December), have your son invite
      his friends (brothers count too!) to join Pack 883.
        • Make sure your son’s name is listed as the “recruiter” on the new Scout’s
            application
        • The Cub Scout must join by the December Pack meeting to be included in the
            contest.
   o If your son recruits a new Cub Scout during the time of the contest, he will:
        • Receive a recruiter patch for his uniform
        • Get to throw a pie into the face of the Cubmaster at the December Pack Meeting
        • Have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart in a drawing at each Pack
            Meeting between September and December
                        • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so
                            the more Cub Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of
                            winning
   o At the December meeting, we will draw for the Grand Prize (a $50 Wal Mart gift card)
        • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the more Cub
            Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of winning.
        • Even if your son wins a $10 Wal-Mart gift certificate at one of the other drawings, he
            will still be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing.

Help Wanted
Our Cub Scout program runs on volunteers, and the Cub Scouting program we offer is as good
as the number of volunteers who are willing to step up to help. We need parents to help with
these upcoming activities. Please contact your Den leader to volunteer your services. Even
though some of these events are several months away, all are in the planning stages now.
Please sign up as soon as possible!

Den Leaders – please coordinate as appropriate to find people from your Den who can help
with these important tasks. We have not received responses from most of the Dens.

 It takes an incredible amount of work to keep our very large Pack
functioning as a model of Cub Scouting. Events that do not receive
 enough parental support will be cancelled, or the program will be
reduced to match the number of parents who have agreed to help –
                       please sign up to help!
o Pinewood Derby Helpers (two from each Den) – assist Howie Taylor and Kevin Kalmbach
  with our annual Pinewood Derby. Attend a limited number of planning meetings, set up for
  the Pinewood Derby, and run the Pinewood Derby.
o Pinewood Derby Concession Helpers (two from each Den) – assist Lynn Kalmbach and
  Jen Metz with our annual Pinewood Derby Concession Stand. Attend a limited number of
  planning meetings, set up for the Pinewood Derby Concession Stand, and run the
  Concession Stand.
o Klondike Derby Helpers (one person from smaller Dens and two from larger Dens) –
  assist with the Pack’s station at the Klondike Derby in January. Instead of having each
  helper sign up for one hour blocks (which is a nightmare to coordinate), we are looking for
  people from each Den to help plan and run the Pack’s station at the annual Klondike Derby.
  Attend a limited number of planning meetings, set up for the Klondike, and run our station
  at the Klondike.
o Blue & Gold Banquet Helpers (one person from smaller Dens and two from larger
  Dens) – assist Ami Gregor with the Pack’s annual Blue & Gold Banquet in February. The
  theme is Knights of the Round Table, and we are looking for some creative (and not so
  creative) helpers. Attend a limited number of planning meetings, set up for the Blue &
  Gold, and run the event.
o Disabilities Awareness Pack Meeting Helpers (one person from smaller Dens and two
  from larger Dens) – Assist Tess Carroll and Erin Habicht with activities that will help the
  boys understand more about those with physical disabilities. Attend a limited number of
  planning meetings and then set up/run the activities.


   An updated list of volunteers is included in our Weekly Update
                   packet – please sign up to help!

  blankets). The blankets will be distributed to U.S. military personnel serving in Iraq,
  Afghanistan, and around the world.

        blankets for the Holiday For Heroes to our Pack Meeting on Friday, October 29,
        and I will be happy to attach the signed cards with blue and gold ribbon. I will be
        sending all of the blankets to the collection site in which they will be filled with
        yummy snacks, a stainless steel mug, socks, and a holiday card with a personal
        thanks and support. Please do not hesitate to call me anytime at 410-935-9302
        (cell) or e-mail me at Laurieira@msn.com with any questions or concerns.
o Neighbors In Need – Details of this annual service project are included as an attachment to

  collected non-perishable food products for local food pantries.
    o Bag drop off in the neighborhoods on February 26, 2011
    o Bag collection on March 5, 2011
o We will also perform a service project for Eldersburg Elementary School during the Cub
  Scout year – we are looking for ideas and someone to run this project!

Training Matrix – The most recent Pack-approved training course matrix is attached to this
Weekly Update. If you have not paid attention to this document in the past, please take a
moment to become familiar for the minimum training requirements for your position – and
please make a commitment to complete any additional training that is required. You can take
virtually any other Scouting-sponsored training courses, but you must have the minimum
training that is required for your position. The goal for completion was June 1, 2010 – so if
you are not compliant, we need your help to make this a priority. You can now complete
all of the minimum training courses on-line.

Training Tracking – Bill Wolf regularly sends out a training tracking spreadsheet that shows
the courses you have completed. A copy of this training track spreadsheet is attached. If you
have completed training that is not shown on this spreadsheet, please get copies of the course
completion cards to Bill Wolf as soon as possible.

BALOO v. OWSWL – What’s the difference between Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation
(BALOO) and the Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders courses?

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is a one-day training event that
introduces Den Leader, Cubmasters, other Pack leaders, and parents to the skills needed to
plan and conduct Pack outdoor activities, particularly Pack camping. In order for a Cub
Scout Pack to have a campout, at least one leader must be BALOO trained.

•   Participants who complete this training course will:
       o Understand the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA outdoor program.
       o Gain the skills needed to plan and carry out a successful Cub Scout-level overnight
           activity.
       o Learn more about the resources available from the BSA for carrying out this activity.
       o This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout.

Webelos Den campouts serve to move the Webelos Scout to the next level of the BSA's ever-
increasing challenge in the outdoors. The boy and his parent will be introduced to the basics
of Boy Scout camping. A trained Webelos Den Leader who has completed position-specific
training and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders should conduct these events.
Webelos Dens are encouraged to participate in joint Den-Troop campouts, particularly in the
fifth-grade year.

•   Designed specifically for Webelos Den Leaders and their assistants, the Outdoor Leader
    Skills for Webelos Leaders course teaches outdoor-related skills through demonstration
    and hands-on practice. Webelos Den leaders should attend this training before conducting
    Webelos overnight camping with the boys and parents of the Den. In addition to covering
    basic camping skills, this training features planning campouts and finding resources.
•   To have a Webelos Den campout, at least one leader should have completed
    Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders

                                                                                            10

What is Pow Wow? It’s a full day of fun filled hands on learning opportunities for every level of

while gathering new ideas for games, crafts, skills and much, much more! Choose from a

Pack Meetings

   •   If your Den is assigned the Gathering, please make sure your Den Leader, Assistant Den
       Leader(s), and Den Chief(s) are at the meeting location at least 20 minutes prior to the
       start of the Pack meeting. Report directly to the Assistant Cubmasters – Program (Cindy
       and Erin) when you arrive. We will have the Gathering planned for you – but we need
       the Den leadership to run the station.
   •   If your Den is not assigned the Gathering, Den Leaders should plan to be at the Pack
       meeting at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the Pack meeting. Report to the
       Advancement Chairs (Jen and Cheryl) and then report to the Assistant Cubmaster (Bill)
       to pick up your information packet.
   •   Don’t forget the Pack meeting attendance sheets are due to Jen and Cheryl as soon as
       possible after the meeting starts. This gives them time to get the advancements sorted
       prior to the point when your Den comes up to receive their awards.
   •   If your Den is assigned the Opening Ceremony (Web I and Web II Dens only), please
       make sure the boys in your Den are ready to begin at the start time for the meeting.
       We want to start on time every month! If you need to practice your flag ceremony,
       please make sure the boys in your Den are there early enough so that we start on time.


                                                                                                 11
   •   There is a special place in Cub Scout Heaven for those people who show up about 45
       minutes early to help set up the room. Every extra pair of hands is greatly appreciated.
   •   Make sure you bring your Den flag to each Pack meeting.
   •   Make sure you and your Den practice your Den cheer/yell. We will open each meeting
       by having each Den give then Den cheer/yell, so please make sure your Cub Scouts are
       ready to give an enthusiastic, clear, loud Den yell right after the opening ceremony. I
       will provide direction about when each Den should start – but make sure your Den is
       ready. You should also give your Den cheer when you come up for advancements.
           o If you are struggling to come up with a Den cheer/yell, just Google “Den Cheers”
              or “Den Yells” – if you can come up with something creative, great. Otherwise,
              there are dozens of “old standards” you can use. The key is something the Cub
              Scouts can memorize easily and yell loudly/clearly. You do not have to create a
              new Den cheer/yell each year, but you can if you and the boys would like to.
           o Based upon our September meeting, please come up with a new and unique
              cheer for your group! We don’t want 5 Dens to have the same yell!
   •   If your Den would like to exhibit the things you did this month, the Pack meeting is a
       perfect time to do this. Set up a table and have your boys show off what they did!
   •   If your Den has a Denner report, let me know that as you come up for advancements.
       The Denner report will be the first thing we do.
   •   Your Den Chief(s) should have a Cub Scout age-appropriate song and a cheer
       (something original and not something that has been overdone) ready at all times. If we
       hit a snag, I would like to be able to ask a Den Chief to come up and lead a song, a
       cheer, or a “filler.” They do not need a new song at each meeting – just one song and
       cheer they can do on a moment’s notice.

Committee Meetings

Pack Committee Meetings are generally held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the
Fischer’s house (6460 Tydings Road). Please make sure there is a representative of each Den
at each of the committee meetings.

Diane will send an updated agenda and a reminder shortly prior to each meeting.

 Cub Scout Pack 883
 Established in 1973
 St. Joseph Catholic Community
 Eldersburg, Maryland

                                                                                  September 2010

Dear Pack 883 Families,

It is time to re-charter our pack with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). As a part of this process, each
Scout and leader must register for the coming year. The annual fee payment to Pack 883 is comprised of
three components. Although the dues represent three distinctly different things (and cover different
periods of time), we collect them all at the same time – in the Fall of each Cub Scout year.

   • National Dues – this fee is paid to the Boy Scouts of America and registers the Cub Scout for the
     period from January through December.
         o For 2011, the National Dues are $16 per Cub Scout per year.
         o The Pack pays the National Dues for each registered leader
   • Boys’ Life – this is the monthly magazine of the Boy Scouts of America. It’s a great magazine
     that reinforces Scouting and the good family values that are part of our program. Registration for
     Boys’ Life is optional. For more information, visit: www.boyslife.org
         o Registration for Boys’ Life is $12 per year.
   • Pack Fee – Pack 883 charges an annual Pack Fee to cover the cost of running the Pack,
     including t-shirts, training, advancement, and program costs. The fee is set each year by the
     Pack Committee. The Pack Fee covers the period from September through August of each year.
         o For Webelos II Cub Scouts (who will bridge in March), the 2010/2011 Pack Fee has been
             set at $50 per boy.
         o For Tiger Cub, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos I Cub Scouts, the 2010/2011 Pack Fee has been
             set at $75 per boy.
         o As an incentive for selling popcorn (our major fundraiser), families can receive a $5
             reduction in the Pack Fee for every $100 in popcorn sold. (You must sell $100 to qualify
             for this deduction.)

Families can use Martin’s cards proceeds to offset the all or part of the registration costs.

                                                              National Boys' Pack
                                                                Dues    Life  Fee    Total
                   Webelos II Cub Scout with Boys' Life        $16.00 $12.00 $50.00 $78.00
                   Webelos II Cub Scout without Boys' Life     $16.00  $0.00 $50.00 $66.00
                   All other Cub Scouts with Boys Life         $16.00 $12.00 $75.00 $103.00
                   All other Cub Scouts without Boys Life      $16.00  $0.00 $75.00 $91.00

Your recharter package must be turned in at the October Pack Meeting – if you do not turn in your
materials at the October meeting, you will not be re-registered with the Pack. We will set up a
collection station specifically for recharter materials. This will allow your materials to be reviewed so that
any mistakes can be caught and so that any questions can be answered on site.

The Pack maintains a website and has also posted Pack activities in local newspapers, so this year the
form will also include a space for you to indicate your disapproval to allow your son’s image to be posted
on the Pack website and any newspapers. If you do not indicate otherwise, we will use your son’s image.

Thank you for your assistance!

Yours in Scouting,



Diane Wolf

                       THE KLONDIKE CHRONICLES
                        JANUARY 28-30, 2011
                  FREEDOM PARK, SYKESVILLE, MARYLAND




Klondike is Carroll District’s annual winter adventure, and Pack 883 will be
participating again in this exciting activity! This event is Cub Scouting at its best
– with lots of hands on activities and events for your Cub Scout, and a really fun
time out in the cold (and it is usually COLD)!

Cub Scout activities for Tiger Cub through Webelos I Dens occur all day on
Saturday. Webelos II Dens are encouraged to camp and participate in the Boy
Scout activities. The Webelos II Den needs to decide by the October Pack
Meeting if it will a.) camp (Friday and/or Saturday night) and compete with the
Boy Scouts, b.) not camp and compete with the Boy Scouts, or c.) compete with
the Cub Scouts.

PLEASE NOTE: At the request of Carroll District, large Dens will be broken up
into two Dens for the event. For logistical purposes, large Dens, when split,
should not travel together. The Dens can certainly decide how to split up for the
day, but we cannot have Dens of more than about 8 boys. Many of the stations
are not set up to accommodate such a large number of boys in one Den at one
time. Den Leaders, please accommodate this request by splitting your boys into
two Dens and having your Assistant Den Leader run the second Den.

Adult Help is Required: We will need every family to commit to sending at least
one parent to help with the Klondike in one of these areas:
  • Assist the Den Leaders and Den Chiefs to move the Dens between
    stations – Ultimately, I would like to have 3-4 people moving with the Dens
    (including Den Leaders, Assistant Den Leaders, and Den Chiefs). Den
    leaders usually bring a wagon to help move all of the “stuff” between
    stations. All Dens will need to have a minimum of two adult leaders who
    will travel with the Dens at all times (in accordance with the BSA Youth
    Protection guidelines). Tiger Cubs are required to have an Adult Partner
    with them at all times on this trip.
 • Assist at the Pack’s Klondike Derby Station – I will need one person from
   each of the smaller Dens and two people from each of the larger Dens to help
   plan and run our game station. (In concept, if people from the Den want to
   split into a morning and afternoon “shift,” that is OK, so that will double the
   number of people who need to sign up from your Den.) The Pack’s station
   theme this year is “Summer is Right Around the Corner,” and all of the
   activities will have a summer/beach theme.
 • Comfort Station – We need someone to coordinate and staff a “comfort
   station” for our Pack – to include hot chocolate/coffee/tea, snacks, a shelter
   for warmth, and other necessities that might make the event more
   comfortable for participants from our Pack (like extra socks, hats, and
   gloves). We found out last year that we don’t need a gaggle of people to
   handle this station – just one person to organize and run it.
 • Help with Parking and Inspection – I will need one person from each of the
   smaller Dens and two people from each of the larger Dens to assist with
   parking and inspection of the Participants. This is a District requirement –
   we will not be able to participate unless we fill these positions. (These
   positions are needed for 2 hours at the very start of the event – you can then
   assist with the Pack’s station.)

Cost: Registration is $7.00 for Cub Scouts, and $4.00 for adults (who will    not
receive a patch) as long as you register by the Pack meeting on October 29.    No
late registration will be accepted. Additional Klondike patches can            be
purchased by adults for $3.00 at the Trading Post. Unlike in prior years,     the
Pack will not be able to pay for the cost of this event out of our budget.

Registration: Registration will be handled on an individual basis. Registration
and payment is due by the October Pack Meeting on October 29. No late
registration will be accepted – NO EXCEPTIONS!

Food: The Order of the Arrow will again be selling hot breakfast and lunch.
There will again be an option to purchase meal tickets in advance – given the
long lines in prior years, it makes a great deal of sense to purchase the food
tickets. There is a separate line for advance purchase food tickets – so you
should get your food much more quickly! For $4, participants get a main course
(burger, hot dog, chili dog, or large bowl of chili), a bag of chips, and a drink
(soda, water, coffee, or hot chocolate). The same $4.00 gets you a breakfast
sandwich, donut, and a drink for breakfast.

Clothing: Everyone who attends Klondike Derby (Scouts, Scouters, parents,
station leaders, etc.) is required to adhere to the clothing requirements. To
ensure the safety of all participants, everyone will need to pass a clothing
inspection before the event starts. The word of the inspectors is final, so don’t
miss out on the opportunity to participate because you forgot a piece of your cold
weather gear!

Even if it is warm on the day of Klondike, follow the cold gear requirements. We
have had years when it was 60 degrees and sunny at the start of the day but mid-
30s and rainy by afternoon. Winter conditions can change suddenly, so Be
Prepared.

REMEMBER: Cotton kills. Don’t wear cotton – when it gets wet, cotton loses all
insulation, and it actually takes the heat AWAY from your skin. Choose wool or
fleece instead.

ALSO REMEMBER: Wear layers. If you get warm, shed a layer (see why Dens
should bring those wagons!). If you get cold, add a layer.

Inspectors will require that you have:

 • Winter hat
 • Winter coat
 • Gloves (waterproof gloves – not cotton gloves!)
   • Please bring an extra pair of winter gloves (not cotton gloves!)
   • Mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves – but you will need gloves for
     the stations since manual dexterity will be required.
   • Long pants
     • Jeans are made of cotton – and they are terrible if they get wet
     • If you have them, wear a pair of snow pants or rain pants over your jeans
        to keep your jeans dry.
     • Wear long underwear!
 • Boots (snow boots or hiking boots – no sneakers!)
 • Two pairs of socks (not cotton)
   • Wear a polypropylene (non-cotton) sock near your foot and add a wool
     sock over it.
   • Make sure you have room in your boots for the extra sock! It’s going to be
     a miserable day for everyone if your boots fit too tightly.
 • Layers of clothing on your torso
    • Start with long underwear or Under Armour
    • Add a long sleeved shirt and then a sweatshirt and then your jacket
    • Remember to wear LAYERS

 On the Day of the Event:

    Parking will be limited, especially after 7:30 AM. There are only 389 parking
    spots at Freedom Park, so CARPOOL! Keep in mind that available parking will
    be inversely proportional to the time when you arrive.
    Because there is no trash collection during the winter, plan to take your trash
    home with you.
    DO NOT use any of the Spot-O-Pots designated for LADIES unless you are
    female.
    The Baseball and Soccer fields are OFF LIMITS.

We will meet at the Pack 883 tent at 9:00 AM. DO NOT go to the registration
shelter. Once we are all on site, we will all go through a mandatory Inspection
Station to make sure all Cub Scouts and adults are dressed appropriately for the
weather (using the guidelines above). Cub Scouts and adults who are not
dressed for the weather will be sent home! Cub Scout events are scheduled to
start at 10:00 AM and will end by 2:00 PM. Boys will be grouped into Dens
(larger Dens will be broken into two smaller Dens), and each Den will receive a
score sheet which will be marked by the person running the station. Especially
encourage boys (and parents) to cheer for those in their Den (some stations may
give extra credit for showing Cub Scout Spirit).

     Do You Know a Future Cub Scout?
                        Here’s How It Works
• During the recruiting period (from September through December), have
  your son invite his friends (brothers count too!) to join Pack 883.
     o Make sure your son’s name is listed as the “recruiter” on the new Scout’s
       application
     o The Cub Scout must join by the December Pack meeting to be included in
       the contest.

• If your son recruits a new Cub Scout during the time of the contest, he
  will:
  • Receive a recruiter patch for his uniform
  • Get to throw a pie into the face of the Cubmaster at the December Pack
    Meeting
  • Have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart in a drawing at each
    Pack Meeting between September and December
    o Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the
      more Cub Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of winning

• At the December meeting, we will draw for
  the Grand Prize (a $50 Wal Mart gift card)
  • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub
    Scout he recruits, so the more Cub Scouts he
    recruits, the greater his odds will be of
    winningdi
  • Even if your son wins a $10 Wal-Mart gift
    certificate at one of the other drawings, he will
    still be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing

                          Cub Scout Pack 883
                           Adult Uniforms

Applicability: Uniformed Leaders of Pack 883 (Chartered Organization Representative,
Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmasters, Den Leaders, and Assistant Den Leaders)

One of the 10 “Methods of Scouting” is to wear a proper uniform. In doing so, we set an
example for the boys in the Pack and for the greater community.

A uniform is an important part of belonging to many organizations, including Cub Scouts.
Think about your high school band or your favorite sports team. The members of those
organizations do not have a distinction that differentiates between a “full uniform” and
something less than that. Each member of the organization dresses in a uniform when they
play. It’s not very much different than our Cub Scout leaders who are in front of their Cub
Scouts during a Den meeting, a Pack meeting, or a Cub Scout activity.

Our goal is to have all of the leaders (excluding non-uniformed Committee Members) in a
complete uniform at all Den and Pack activities.

A complete uniform consists of:
     o Official BSA leader shirt or blouse
        o With patches correctly sewn and with navy blue shoulder loops
        o Either the newer “Centennial” uniform or the older uniform style is acceptable
     o Official BSA leader pants
        o The current style is called Switchbacks which allow for them to be worn as shorts
            or long pants
                   There are several different styles of pants that are acceptable:
                      • The newer uniform pants are part of the “Centennial uniform”
                             o There are Centennial Switchbacks (nylon - which convert
                                 to/from shorts) – they are $50 each
                             o There are Centennial Canvas Pants (canvas - which also
                                 convert to/from shorts) – they are $35-$40 each
                      • The older style of Switchbacks has zippers at the ankles – they have
                          been replaced by newer styles that need to be hemmed (see
                          above). The older style of Switchbacks is available at the Scout Shop
                          and on line (www.scoutstuff.org) in limited quantities at steep
                          discounts - $20.
                             o They have specific women’s sizes – the Centennial uniform
                                 does not have separate sizing for men and women.
        o The older style of uniform pants and shorts are acceptable as well. The Scout
            Shop (and www.scoutstuff.org) has limited sizes of the older style of pants
            available at really expensive prices - $12.50 to $15.
     o Socks

         o If you choose to wear shorts, you should wear the BSA socks: the current version
             is the low cut BSA sock
         o If you wear long pants, please just wear a dark colored sock that matches the
             uniform
      o Belt
         o The nylon Switchbacks pants has a belt built into the pants. You don’t need to
             purchase a belt in this case.
         o For all of the other pants, the Centennial Boy Scout web belt is appropriate – you
             don’t have to purchase the Cub Scout belt buckle – just wear the Universal
             emblem belt buckle.
         o A BSA leather belt is also acceptable

The following items are not required by our Pack: neckerchief or hat.

You can purchase your uniform from one of many sources:
      o www.scoutstuff.org
      o Baltimore Scout Shop
         o 800 Wyman Park Drive, Baltimore, Maryland 21211 (near the Maryland Zoo)
         o 7502 Connelley Drive, Suite 120, Hanover, Maryland 21076 (near Arundel Mills
             Mall)
      o Benn’s Mens Wear
         o 140 Village Shopping Center, Westminster, Maryland
         o They do not have as extensive a selection at Benn’s as they do at the Scout Shop,
             but Benn’s will sew on your patches (for a small fee)

PLEASE NOTE: The purpose of this request is to enhance our Pack and its program. It is not an
attempt to impose a financial burden on you or your family. We realize these uniform
components are expensive, and we fully recognize how much our leaders contribute to the
success of our Pack. If it poses a financial burden on your family to purchase a full Cub Scout
leader uniform, please call Marc Fischer at 410.977.2956 or email me at
marc.fischer@transwestern.net, and together we will find a way to acquire these uniform parts
for you. I promise you that I will confidentially find a way to help you acquire the uniform parts
you need so that you can set an example for the members of our Pack and for the community in
which we serve.

 PLEASE HELP!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!
While many of us are blessed with a loving family, a warm home, an abundance
of food, and plentiful creature comforts this holiday season, there are many
families in Carroll County who are not as fortunate. It is hard to believe it, but
there are people right in our community who are struggling to heat their home,
provide basic clothing for their family, and purchase groceries to make healthy
meals. And, during the Holidays, there is added pressure on these fragile families
to provide presents for their children. Add to all of this the uncertainty of the
economy and rising prices for groceries, fuel, and utilities, and it is easy to see how
hard this holiday season will be for families in our community.

It is easy for the true spirit of the holiday to be lost on our own children (who, like
kids throughout America, sometimes see this as a time of gift receiving instead
of gift giving). For some of our children, it can be hard for them to understand
that there are kids in our area who might not receive any gifts this season.

In an effort to help teach our children about the meaning of the holidays, Pack
883 has decided to support Neighbors in Need, a program of Carroll County’s
Human Services Program (www.hspinc.org). The Neighbors in Need program
provides holiday toys for children, food vouchers, and clothing (for men, women,
children, and infants) at a Santa Shop in Westminster. The shop operates for one
week just prior to Christmas, and families are referred to the program through
Carroll County’s Department of Social Services.

Would you consider donating new clothing (winter coats, jeans, shirts,
socks, and underwear) or new toys for this worthy charity? Please
bring your donations to our November Pack Meeting, and members of
our Community Service committee will deliver the donations to
Neighbors in Need later in December.

We hope you will consider helping us this year, and we hope you and your family
have a memorable holiday season!
