Cub Scout Halloween and Turkey Shoot
Come have fun at Camp Tamarancho on Saturday, October 26. The council Shooting Sports Committee will conduct the Seventh Annual Cub Scout Halloween and Turkey Shoot. Archery and BB guns will be the activities of the day. Cub Scouts (Tiger through Webelos--Lions cannot shoot) are encouraged to wear fun Halloween costumes.
Don't worry; no turkeys will be harmed at this event!
The fun starts at 10:00 a.m. with 30 minute sessions every 40 minutes (allowing 10 minutes of travel time between sessions) until 2:50 pm. We can accommodate 8 Cubs per rotation on each range. Space is limited, so sign up early. Cubs should arrive at the BB Gun range 15 minutes before their scheduled session for a mandatory safety briefing. (If they miss it, they will not be allowed to shoot.) Also, allow ample time to drive up the "hill." There will be traffic coming and going. If your Cub Scout is late for the scheduled time your Cub may miss the action.
Cost per participant is $10, which covers 1 session of archery and 1 session of BB's shooting.
Register soon because it will fill up quickly!
Online sign-ups and scheduling ONLY on the council web site (click this link). Sign-up deadline: October 23. Release forms must be filled out and signed by at least one custodial parent/guardian in order to participate. Forms are available on the council web site. You will have the opportunity to download them when you register. NO WALK-INS WILL BE ALLOWED.
Tigers must have an adult partner with them. No one can wear face masks, jewelry, or loose clothing while shooting. Everyone must wear closed-toed shoes in camp. No dogs allowed in camp (unless a service animal).
Pack 7 spent the night on the SS Jeremiah O’Brien Liberty Ship that resides in San Francisco. Our scouts toured the main deck, the living quarters, and the engine room. They were treated to pizza and a fun game that taught them all about the ship’s unique role in WWII
Our annual Pack 7 Pinewood Derby was a smashing success! Our scouts worked hard designing, building, and painting their cars for the big race. Colin McLain's car, “It’s not going to win” ended up taking home the first place trophy. Great job to all of our Cub Scouts!
We want to send a huge thank you out to all of our families who attended our Blue and Gold Banquet. We hope everyone had a great time!
Check out our Instagram for some great photos of the evening! To top off a fun evening, the Boy Scouts of America took notice of our banquet and posted about it on their Instagram! Thousands of people across the country and around the world got to see the Storm Troopers in action at our Blue and Gold banquet!
Pack 7 scouts were invited to take a tour of the Fairfax Police Department and learn all about safety and forensics. We explored the 911 dispatch station, checked out a police car, and learned how to dust for fingerprints. Corporal Judge, Officer Kenerly and Dispatcher Crow showed us the inner workings of the police department. Each scout that participated received a sticker!
Our visit got a write up in the San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch
Our Bear Den organized a tour of the Bear Valley Visitor Center and a day hike at Point Reyes National Seashore. Our scouts learned about local plants and animals and then viewed them in the wild on the Earthquake and Kule Loklo Trails. It was a really fun day!
We celebrated the 78th birthday of Pack 7 at the Canon Club in Fairfax. We gave back by doing a community service project to help clean up trash, leaves, and overgrown brush in the area. Once complete, the pack celebrated with an annual pool party and birthday cake. It was a fun afternoon.
The pack hiked into the Shady Bend campsite at Camp Tamarancho and setup camp. From here we took a hike along the B-17 trail and witnessed the old B-17 plane engine that was left behind from the crash in 1946. Our Webelos helped prepare meals and cooked up a delicious cobbler for dessert. We all earned a Pack Camp patch for participating in the event.
