Mega Scout Expo 2011

30 Apr 2011

April 29-30, 2011 – This year’s Mega Scout Expo was held at Tule Springs and it brought together Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from Las Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City. The Expo was spread out across the entire park, with games and activities for all to enjoy. Pack 99‘s booth was make their “World Famous bead Tie Slides”. Pack 99 received second place award this year for our booth. Scouts sure liked their tie-slide creations.

The Expo also provides family camping  Friday night. The area at the park looked like we were camping in the mountains, lots of trees and the lake right next to the camp site. The Bighorn District, which is the district Pack 99 belongs to, camped together in the same area. It was a little windy on Friday night and little chilly Saturday morning. Campers and participants received a nice 3″ collector’s patch (shown above). Thank you to all who came out to support Pack 99. If you weren’t able to make it this year we hope to see you next year. It was a fun family event and a great way to earn lots of belt loops and electives.

Pinewood Derby 2011

19 Apr 2011

This year the Pinewood Derby had to be held outside due to no space available inside Bevan Hall. The weather was cold but sunny earlier in the morning but once the derby began the wind started to blow and a huge cloud dumped large flakes of snow on the race. Hot chocolate helped to warm the race fans and the cold weather did not lessen the crowds’ enthusiasm. Congratulations to all our cub scouts who were awarded trophies and to all the participants for helping to make this year’s race a memorable one.
