December Pack Meeting - We're Going Rock Climbing!!!

Posted on Nov 25 2022 - 12:38am

Our December Pack Meeting will be on December 11th from 1-3pm. at Canyons Climbing Gym in Frisco  (7164 Technology Dr # 202, Frisco, TX 75033). The Pack is paying for Scouts climbing fees for the day.   Please register on the pack website so we know how many scouts will be attending.  Because there is a finite amount of climbing space and harnesses at the facility, we cannot open up the event to siblings/friends.  

Scouts can wear class B T-shirts, and must wear closed toe shoes.  Please help our scouts get started climbing faster by filling out the gyms waiver form (https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/canyonstx/13e79cb2-5206-4b4f-9792-721c231fc6af) ahead of time.  Parents can help scouts get more turns climbing by assisting as belayers (managing the rope system).  Because there is a finite amount of climbing space and harnesses at the facility, we cannot open up the event to siblings/friends.

McAuliffe Elementary Flag Duty

Posted on Nov 25 2022 - 12:38am

Pack 163 provides Flag Duty daily to McAuliffe Elementary School and they are so very appreciative!  

Please sign-up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C094AAAAD23A3F85-mcauliffe to help us provide that service.Flags should be raised anytime between 7:15-7:45am and lowered, folded, and stowed in the office as soon as school is dismissed. The flags do not need to be raised in rain or freezing weather.  

Raising and lowering the flags is not a one-man job, so parents can assist their scout(s) with Flag Duty or friends can team up to do it together. In fact, friends do not have to be a Cub Scout to help with Flag Duty!

The sign-up also includes instructions on how to fold the flags and a reminder on flag etiquette.

Visit www.halfstaff.org to sign-up for email half staff alerts.

McAuliffe Elementary Veterans Day Celebration

Posted on Nov 3 2022 - 10:29am

Pack 163 is honored to help McAuliffe Elementary School celebrate our country's veterans during their annual Veterans Day Celebration being held on Friday, November 11th at 8:15 am

McAuliffe would appreciate as many scouts as possible attending the celebration in uniform.  We will also be able to help by presenting the flags and leading the pledge of allegiance.  In order to walk in with the color guard, scout uniforms need to be clean, ironed and tucked into their pants or shorts.   

Please register your scout if he/she would like to participate.
