For our May pack meeting we will be holding our annual pack Olympics. This is a fun, outside activity where Scouts participate in a variety of “Olympic” events. Scouts will compete in:
- The Standing Long Jump
- Running Long Jump
- Overhand Softball Throw
- Broomstick Throw
- Football Kick
- Push Ups
- 50-Yard Dash
The top finishers in each age group will be eligible to represent the pack at the Gemstone District Olympics. This is a fun event that your boys won’t want to miss. Scouts should wear their Class B uniform (t-shirts) and comfortable shoes.

Pack 171 is attending the Cub Scout Odyssey at the Piedmont Council’s Scout Reservation (about an hour and a half west of Mooresville). This parent/son camping trip starts Friday night and ends on Sunday. It will feature exciting programs and activities for all age Cub Scouts including Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos Scouts. The weekend will feature many opportunities for boys to learn Scouting skills, play games and participate in crafts. There will also be BB shooting and archery. Families should plan to bring their own tents and other camping equipment. The cost is $35 each person (Scout and Parent) and includes a snack on Friday night, three meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. Transportation will be on your own. Carpooling is encouraged!
Make plans to join us now. See you there!

The Gemstone District Day Camp will be held June 15th to 19th at Van Hoy Campground in Harmony (about 12 miles north of Statesville).
Training dates for adult volunteers are March 17th and March 25th at 7:00 pm at Vandenberg United Methodist Church in Mooresville. Our Pack will need two trained adult volunteers each day of the week in order for us to be permitted to send any boys.
These are the only two meetings, so if you plan to volunteer to work, please plan to come to one of the meetings. The fee this year is $70.00 per Scout for the week.
