Today I get to meet with an old work friend when I worked at Nike. Yes, that same Nike. He is a Disc Golf Guru and plays all over the Portland Metro area. He also has a Son who is now in Boy Scouts. Through Facebook he contacted and offered to help host a Disc Golf Clinic for the Pack for a Summertime Award Activity. Well, of course I am going to say YES!
I have been wishy washy about trying to get together, but today is the day we sit down and hammer it all out over lunch. I highly suspect that all the boys who attend will be able to get not only the Beltloop, but the Pin as well. Which, if the soon to be Webelos I (& Webelos II) go, will it will help knock off a item for their Sportsman Pin.
If your Pack is NOT doing Summertime Pack Award events….you need to do it. It keeps the boys engaged with Scouting, help recruiting, gets the boys and their families OUTSIDE, is very fun and on a lot of fun! The other side benefit is that it’s required for the Cubmaster Knot. Which to me, if your working towards your Leader Knots, it makes you do things like this. Which in the end leads to MORE FUN! It’s not why I am doing it. But it keeps me on track to providing FUN for the boys!
