July 29, 2008
Today we worked on the Webelos requirements. We did requirements 7a,b,c on page 49. The boys are supposed to know the Scout salute, sign, handshake and when to use them. They need to know the law, oath, motto, slogan and what they mean. The boys who were here passed off these things.

We also worked on the Outdoorsman. We did requirements #5, 7, 10. We discussed the outdoor code, fire safety, and then we fused some ropes. What we did today will help the boys get their Webelos advancement, and then the Arrow of Light. Outdoorsman is required for Arrow of Light and the boys must camp to get it. At ten they are required to go with their family, so I hope that you will all plan a camping trip, even if it is only in the back yard.

July 9, 2008

Yesterday at our Webelos Den Meeting we made a poster about being a good citizen. Each of the boys there participated. That fulfilled the last requirement for the citizen belt loop. Some of the boys have now earned the citizenship pin. Remember this pin is required to get the Webelos Award. If your son was not at the meeting last week please do the character connection with him. Also if he has not completed a week of chores, or done a service project please work on those.

In the den meeting we also worked on the Naturalist pin that they started up at camp. At camp they did #7,#9,#10. We completed #5 and #6. So those boys there yesterday who went to camp will recieve the Naturalist pin.

We also worked on the Forester Pin. At camp they did #2 and we did #6 yesterday. We looked at a tree stump and talked about the tree rings.

These boys are doing very well. They are interested in what we learn. They want to earn the awards that we have been working so hard to earn. Please work with them so that they can accomplish their goals.

Den Meeting July 1st

Den Meeting:
Matthew, and Mitchell were there. We worked on the character connection part of the Citizenship pin. This is a required pin, if you son was not there please talke to him about this. We reviewed some of the things that they did at camp. Then we went outside to practice some sporting skills. At camp the boys worked on the sportsman pin. They learned about flag football and played a game. One thing that they did not do is practice the skill for 30 minutes. That is required for the belt loop, which is required to get the pin. The other team sport was volleyball, so we practiced that also. To finish those pins each boy must do this. If you work with him at home please send a signed note telling what he did.

To complete the Citizen pin each boy must make a list and then keep track of his chores for a week. Each boy must also participate in a service project. The last thing is to make a poster about how to be a good citizen. We will do this next week at den meeting. If your son can make it he may make one on his own.

Remember to work on the rockets for Pack Meeting on July 22. You can also participate in the district activity if you would like.
