collected. Becky offered to be the pack leader for the day camp. The Ed Bryant overnight camp’s registration deadline
is April 24th.
*The second chance popcorn orders and monies are due now! Get them to Tamie. Maria made a motion to disburse the profits
from this popcorn sale the same as the fall sale. Sixty percent of the profit will go to the pack general funds, and forty
percent will go to the individual accounts. The motion was seconded by Sue. Motion passed. There are no prizes with the second
chance popcorn, and the gross profit is 39%.
*The Lions Club have approached us about our pack picking up garbage at the grade. They proposed that we can do this once
a month during the months of May to Sept. Each time that we do it, they will donate $100 to our pack. We can do this every
month or some months. The choice is ours. They estimate that it will take us 1 ½ to 2 hours each month. Those present at the
meeting voiced some concerns for safety and potential scheduling conflicts. Becky made a motion to perform the clean up all
five months through the Lions club per checking into necessary safety precautions. Sue seconded the motion. All agreed. Motion
passed. Tentative dates were scheduled as follows: May 13th, June 10th, July 8th, Aug. 12th,
and Sept, 16th. Each date is a Saturday and will begin at nine o’clock in the morning.
*Our spring graduation ceremony is scheduled for May 8th. Various locations were discussed, and it was decided
to try to have it at the McKenzie center at six o’clock. We will do a potluck of cookies, bars, snacks, etc. The Tigers
will perform the opening and closing ceremonies.
*The Baraboo Heritage Days are scheduled for May 19-21. The Cub Scouts are invited on Sat. May 20. Please see Tamie for
*There is an invite to a Scout day at Six Flags. See Tamie for more info.
*Becky discussed the Spring Recruitment. It is scheduled for Thurs, April 27th. This Join Scouts Night will
be held at the school at six thirty. Additional hands are needed to help with set up at six o’clock. The boys should
be in uniform, and they are welcome to wear their brag vests. Please bring a snack for afterwards. See Becky with any questions.

*Becky also discussed the local Military Support Group. They will meet Tues.., April 18th at their monthly meeting.
They assemble care packages for oversees military members, and they could use extra hands. They meet at the school cafeteria
at 7:00 and welcome any scouts who would like to lend a hand.
*Sue talked about the Poynette Community Garden. Although all plots are reserved this year, perhaps the scouts could put
in borders around the central garden as an activity. No decision was made regarding this activity.
*Gary talked about the proposed pack budget. He has received very little feedback--one positive and one negative comment.
This budget does not allow for a storage unit unless additional funds come in to cover it. Gary made a motion to accept the
budget as it currently stands with amendments for the lack of a storage unit and for an increase in award money. This budget
is to run until September 2006. Sue seconded the motion. All agreed.
*Tamie adjourned the meeting.
Attendance: Tamie, Becky, Sue, Gary, Maria, Renee, Beth, and Shannon.
Cub Scout Meeting
March 8, 2006
*Dave called the meeting to order.
*The secretary’s report was handed out. Tamie asked if there were questions with it. There were none.
*Shannon gave the treasurer’s report. We have $1853.24 in the general fund, $1900.93 in the kids’ accounts,
and $276.01 in the derby fund. Shannon asked if everyone can please remember to talk to her or Gary before making purchases
where reimbursement is expected. Also, it remains important to have an approximate cost for these purchases before they are
approved. In addition, if we can have these receipts presented to us in a timely fashion, it will be easier to continue to
allot funds. A question was asked if the Poynette Fire Department will be contributing a donation. In past years, they have
given Pack 368 a $500 contribution. This remains uncertain for this year. There is a new person at the Fire Dept. who is in
charge of this. Tamie is going on Thursday, March 9, to request funds.
*Gary talked about the preliminary pack budget. This is currently an even balance. Gary went through the numbers briefly.
There are some optional items in the proposed budget. A storage unit at $350/year was discussed, but is not currently included.
Please look over these numbers and bring any questions or concerns to the next parent meeting or to Gary via e-mail. Sue motioned
to table the budget for further review. Dave seconded the motion.
*Dave-Rain gutter regatta--This is on the schedule for the April pack meeting, April 17th. We will need Monday
the 10th to build them. We currently have twenty boat kids in our inventory. Since the Weblos will be crossing
over before the event, we only need to purchase three more kits at $3.50 each. We will also need funds for patches for those
participating. Maria donated the use of sawhorses, and Sue donated the use of gutters. Maria made a motion to approve the
expense of approximately $35 to come from the general fund. Gary seconded the motion. All agreed.
*Sue handed out the final numbers from the derby hot dog fundraiser. Our gross sales totaled $245.55 (after taking out
$50 start up money). This included drinks, chips, hot dogs, and bake sale items. The food expenses totaled $45.71, which brought
our final profit to $199.84.
*Becky discussed Spring Recruitment Week, which is April 17-21. She suggested having the boys bring a friend to the rain
gutter regatta as part of the recruitment. On 4-27-06 we will have a sign up night at the school cafeteria to start at 6:30.
Set up will be at 6:00, and sign up should take approximately one hour. Also, the Baraboo scout troop has invited our pack
to participate in their spring movie night. The date is May 6th at the Baraboo movie theater in the afternoon.
Entrance is free to scouts in uniform if they bring a can good for donation. If interested, see Becky for more info.
*Tamie talked briefly about upcoming camp info. She has compiled a binder with all of the camp info. It is available to
parents at weekly meetings. Please feel free to look through this. She requested that leaders please let their parents know
about this. Also, we are required to register for these events as a pack rather than individually.
*Tamie discussed Second Chance popcorn. She will head up this fundraiser, and stressed that we really need this fundraiser
for the pack. It starts this month. There will be no prizes for sales, and the profit to the pack is 39%, which will be split
between boys’ accounts and the pack fund. There will be no show and deliver--take orders only.
*Dave-Cubmobile Derby. Most of the supplies are being donated, but we will need a few things as well as storage for the
finished cub mobiles.
*There will be no meeting on April 3rd since there is no school that day.
*Roger talked about the upcoming Arrow of Light Ceremony to be held on March 20th. A dance team will be coming
in. He will be presenting the Weblos’ awards during the ceremony. This will be followed by the Crossover Ceremony with
refreshments to follow. The Weblos will handle the refreshments.
*Becky discussed the Scouting for Food dates. April 1st will be the bag distribution, and the pick up date will
be April 8th. We will be working with the Boy Scouts. Presently, we are not sure if they will be requiring our
help for bag pick up. There will be more info to come.
*Dave motioned to adjourn, and Maria seconded the motion.
Attendance: Dave, Tamie, Becky, Sue, Gary, Paul, Roger, Tim, Maria, and Shannon.
