See you Thursday, May 26 at 6:30pm.

Step outside Sunday night and you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the total lunar eclipse. Late in the evening, the full moon is slated to pass directly into Earth's shadow cast by the sun, illuminating the moon a brilliant red. According to NASA, the moon will begin to enter Earth's shadow – also known as the umbra – around 10:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. Totality – or the period when the moon is fully immersed in Earth's shadow – will begin at about 11:30 p.m. ET and last for roughly an hour and a half. The eclipse ends just before 2 a.m. ET Monday morning. As it is a lunar eclipse, it is safe to view with the naked eye.

Have fun!

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight at 6:30pm at Summitt Elementary - Thurs, April 28 for our Pack Meeting!

Please make sure to be in uniform if possible, especially our Advancing Scouts: The Lions, Tigers and Webelos!!

Come join us as we work to make Summitt more inviting to our native pollinators.

We will be working on cleaning up some of the dead limbs and debris from the winter freeze. We will also be planting new native plants in the new pollinator space near the portables.

Please bring garden tools for planting, trimming shrubs and plants, as well as gloves, and water. And don't forget your sunscreen and hat.

If anyone is willing to assist during the plant buying and transporting please reach out to Mary Ann Thomas at 944-7580. We will be buying lots of plants so a truck or two would be very helpful, planning on doing some shopping trips March 25th and March 30th.

It is not timed/scored so you can start at any time and get familiar with orienteering.   Each point will have an orienteering symbol, when you find it, write down what that symbol represents (your welcome packet will include a symbol list).

Point-to-Point Courses (the main event)

There are four courses that you can choose from:

  • White: Easiest — for beginners, especially families with young children. Length: 2-3 km
  • Yellow: Easy — for experienced beginners, e.g. adults or teens with outdoor experience. Length: 3-5 km
  • Orange: Intermediate — a mix of easy and more challenging control points. Length: 4.5-7 km
  • Green: Advanced, medium length — difficult navigation, moderate physical challenge. Length: 4-7 km

Score-O: After awards there is a short Score-O event where scouts have a limited time to find as many points as they can before the clock runs out.

Night-OAfter sunset, there is a Score event where scouts use flashlights to help them find as many of the reflective markers before the time runs out.  High score within the limited time wins!

Getting Ready

What to bring:  pen/pencil, pants, poncho, water, sunscreen, a whistle, a snack, watch, compass (helpful, but not necessarily needed for beginner courses) first aid kit.  Flashlight is a must-have for the Night-O.

If you are participating in the Merit Badge Class, please bring a compass.

Don’t forget lunch and dinner if you are hanging out for all of the activities or camping out.
