New Bad Weather Policy

posted Feb 28, 2016, 4:12 PM by Webmaster Pack9037

The Pack's leadership voted in February to adopt a new policy as follows: "CANCELLATIONS DUE TO WEATHER: When School District 197 cancels afternoon and evening activities, Scout activities will also be cancelled. Exceptions may be made for trips or other special events."

Reasons given by the Pack's leaders were as follows:
1) Consistency with other school and area extra-curricular activities.
2) Consistency for families with Scouts in more than one Den.
3) Bad weather travel can be challenging to all families, taking into consideration lenthy post-work commutes, childcare arrangements, etc.
5) Safety first AND Be Prepared.

Pinewood Derby - 2016

Almost 50 cars from Pack 37 raced today (2-28-16) in West St. Paul. Great job by all the racers and nice work on the many interesting/cool-looking cars. We gave trophies to the Top 5 and certificates to "cool car" winners. In the words of Cubmaster Kloos, "Gentlemen, start your engines! One, two, three... VROOOM!"
