                           CUB SCOUT PACK 89
      KOREA DISTRICT, FAR EAST COUNCIL, BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
                        BY-LAWS AND GUIDELINES

The By-Laws of Cub Scout Pack 89, of Yongsan Post, Seoul, Korea, are those established and adhered to by the
BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA, our parent organization. Following are the background and policy
statements/guidelines of Cub Scout Pack 89, as set down by the Pack Committee.

I. BACKGROUND
The Cub Scouting program is made available to families who choose to register-their first through fifth grade
sons in the BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA (BSA), through a CUB Scout pack. CUB SCOUT PACK 89 is
sponsored by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Seoul, Korea.

Currently, Pack 89 accommodates families living in and near Yongsan Army Post and Hannam Village housing
areas, and who are authorized access to U.S. Government facilities in Korea. This does not exclude residents of
other vicinities; however, families living in other areas are encouraged to join and support a Cub Scout Pack in
their own neighborhood, whenever one exists.

The objective of Pack 89 is to provide a wholesome learning experience for our boys, through a satisfying,
fun-filled, character-building program of activities.

For Pack 89 to successful fulfill its obligation to our boys, each family must share in the administration of the
Cub Scout program. Parents(*) must understand, before they enroll their sons,. that Cub Scouting is a program
for THEM to participate in WITH their sons. Responsibility for the success of the Pack begins in the home,
extends to the den, the neighborhood, and then to the Community.

Participation in, and enjoyment of, the Cub Scout program can be assured only by proper planning and guidance
from the adults involved. Listed in the following sections are some of the obligations and guidelines which must
clearly be understood by the parents, and agreed to, before their boy can be registered with Pack 89.

* The term "Parent" (or "Parents"), as used throughout this document, may be replaced by the term "Guardian"
or "sponsor", as appropriate to the individual boy's family situation.

II. REGISTRATION AND RANK CRITERIA
A. ELIGIBILITY -
1. Boys who are in Elementary School Grades First through Fifth, but are not over the age of eleven (11), are
