Spring Trip 2015 – USS Yorktown

Pack 50 will be sleeping like sailors aboard the USS Yorktown.  Scouts and their families will experience the majesty of the USS Yorktown, sleep in the berthing areas, eat “Navy” style in the Chieft Petty Officers’ Mess, learn about naval and aviation history and star gaze at night.  We are also offering an optional tour of Fort Sumter on Sunday morning after we depart the USS Yorktown.  Come join the fun!

Blue and Gold Banquet

Saturday, February 28, 2015

We will meet at the Stone Mountain Campground (Campground Pavilion – a map showing this location is attached) between 5:00pm – 5:15pm – the supper begins at 5:30pm.

Pack 50 will be providing the meat dish (pulled pork and smoked quartered chicken), plates/utensils, and paper products. Pack 50 will provide condiments.

Bring a covered dish – please bring enough to share with others. Don’t forget serving utensils!

  • Tigers – bring a dessert.
  • Wolf & Bear – bring chips.
  • Webelos 1&2 – bring a salad, veggie tray, or side dish.
  • All families need to bring their own non-alcoholic drinks.

Following the meal, we will begin Campfire Pack Meeting in the Pavilion.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather. The Pack meeting is inside a campground pavilion with a fireplace; we are protected from the wind and rain. However, other than the fire, it is not heated. Cub Scouts should wear their Class A uniforms!

The Pavilion has picnic bench seating; but feel free to bring a chair.

Don’t forget your camera! Most, if not all, boys will be advancing in rank tonight.

We say farewell to our Webelos II scouts tonight – They crossover from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. This is a special ceremony for them, but fascinating to watch as well. As an encouragement for those boys crossing over, and to possibly motivate your son to make this achievement as well, please plan on staying for this special ceremony at the conclusion of our Pack meeting.

You can download a detail map here of check the google map below. See you there!
