Moving on from Burks’ celebration of our Scouting Ministries and the Pinewood Derby February 10, Pack 3266 held its annual Blue and Gold Banquet February 25. March activities include a March 4 Pack meeting and a March 11 cross-over ceremony, as our older Webelos move on to Boy Scouts. Troop 166 also is staying quite active, with youth patrol leader training February 18, merit badge colleges at Chattanooga State and Cumberland University March 16, the Sequoyah District Camporee March 22-24, and an April camp-out at the Sasquatch Museum at Cherry Log, GA. Come join us any Monday evening at 6:45 to get in on the fun!
Scouts will help in both services on February 12th, and Pack 3266 will have its annual Pinewood Derby that afternoon. All young men and women (and adult leaders) who are involved in Scouting should proudly wear their uniforms on February 12th to be recognized. Burks’ members will show our appreciation through the time-honored Methodist traditions of a hearty welcome and by sharing food with families of the Pinewood Derby participants that afternoon. More information on how you can help will be available in Sunday School classes February 5.
Troop 166 rafted the Nantahala river recently. They had a great time in the cooold water. More pictures are available on the Troop Web Host site, http://www.troopwebhost.org/Troop166Hixson/
Following the service, Pack 3266 held its Pinewood Derby. Ninety-five cars were entered in the race and everyone had a great time.
Before the race, Burks Sunday School classes provided food for and helped serve the Scouting families. Thanks for all your help.
