Blue & Gold Banquet

"Olympic Camping!"

Pack 156!

It’s almost here!!!

The Blue & Gold Banquet is this Saturday, 5-8pm, in the Christian Life Center, at the First United Methodist Church in Cookeville. This is a covered dish (pot-luck) dinner, ceremony and birthday party for the Cub Scouts (BSA), games, crafts and all. Please bring the entire family!

"What should I bring?"

1) Your Scout in uniform, and of course, the entire rest of your family

2) A dish to share, and serving utensils (enough to feed your family + 2)

3) Any "Scouting for Food", food donations you have collected

4) A dessert that you and your Scout made, to enter in the Golden Spoon competition / fund raiser.

5) A lot of energy and a big smile! Fun and food are guaranteed!

The Pack will provide drinks, plates, utensils and cups.

Remember, the Golden Spoon competition is both a fund raiser for the Pack, and a challenge to see who can make the best home-made dessert. Our theme is "Olympic Camping". Be creative with it! A marble jar will be placed in front of each dessert, and marbles will be exchanged for a $0.25/each donation. The Scout whose dessert earns the most marbles will be awarded the GOLDEN SPOON! You may vote for as many desserts as you like, and/or you can put a fist full of marbles in the one that is clearly the best! This is intended to be a parent / Scout event, where you get to spend time baking with your Scout. Fun and tasty learning!! By the way, after the voting is done and a winner is named, we will all share in eating the desserts! It’s a triple win event!

Can you help with set-up? Volunteers will be setting up tables and decorations starting at 6pm Friday night (Feb. 7th). Games, crafts, and more decorating will start Saturday morning at 10:30am. Any help would be appreciated!

See you Saturday for this big birthday party event. Rain or shine! Oh yeah, this one is INDOORS... :-)

Yours In Scouting,
