On Friday November 26th (Day after Thanksgiving), a number of Pack 104 scouts convened to complete a hike in conjunction with Troup 24. The whole group started out together & then split off along the way into 3 crews which did 3.6-mile, 7.2-mile and 10.1-mile hikes.
Here are a few photos from this hike
Very exciting for the pack, there was a siting of a coyote!!
Check out this YouTube Video to meet their furry friend.
This winter, a number of Pack 104 Scouts participated in popcorn sales to earn funds for pack activities and outings, as well as support other pack program-related expenses. This fundraiser also taught Scouts about salesmanship and contributing to their pack and the Council.
Here is a synopsis of how the popcorn sales went this year!
Total sales: $5054.47
Our total commission was $1802.07
We also received cash donations during popcorn sales: $274.91
With cash donations, we raised $2076.98 for Pack 104 from popcorn sales
3 Scouts who reached the 500-point threshold will split gift cards worth $260
We were the 33rd top-ranked unit in our Council out of 500–1000 units
We were the 3048th-ranked in the nation out of about 150,000 units
Council Popcorn Kernel Tim Welty said:
“We will for sure give Pack 104 the bonus commission for the in-person sales. They have done a really good job and carried Herms district to goal.” (Herms District has recently been the lowest-performing district, and our district’s goal was only $4000). Because of our performance we earned the “GGAC Above and Beyond” award, which gives us a 4% boost to our commission (32% to 36%).
On Saturday, October 30th, over 100 Webelos (including 5 from Pack 104) convened at Camp Herms in El Cerrito for a fun-filled weekend. The Webelos pitched their tents without adult help, put on a campfire program, and worked on several adventure pins including: Outdoor Adventurer, First Responder, Into the Woods, and Adventures in Science.
