Scouts and Akela,  It's that time again - time to pay the annual Pack 702 dues for new or continuing scouts.  No change from last year, $55, early bird discount.  The price increases to $60 on 9/21.  The purpose of the early bird discount is to aid the committee in rechartering our pack with the BSA.  The best way to pay is using our website or click on "Online Payments" from the menu on the left-hand side of the web site.  Checks can also be provided to John D'Antonio made out to Pack 702.  New scouts will also need to fill out the application form (in person).  We'll have these forms on hand at raingutter, recruiting night (PRES), and at 9/20 Pack Meeting.  Questions can be emailed to additionally, any new prospective scouts can also be passed to your den leader or the cubmaster. 

GaGa-Ball Barn Raising at Mt. Zion

Posted by Kathy Hawthorne on Jul 18 2015 - 9:13pm

For those that are in town and available, Pack 702 will be assembling/donating a GaGa-ball pit on Sunday August 2nd at Mt. Zion. This is a service project for the kids and an opportunity to give back to our charter organization. For those parents that are unfamiliar, GaGa ball is a "dodge ball" style game played in a large wooden octagon. It is a lot of fun for kids and adults. Kids that attened National Pike Day Camp this summer really enjoyed playing on the GaGa pits there. Our Pack 702 kids will get a lot of mileage out of this pit in the upcoming years. It will be a great way to start/finish den meetings this fall.

River Hill Independence Day Parade

Posted by Dave Lovell on Jun 17 2015 - 6:11pm

Dear Cub Scouts and Akela,

The 4th of July is rapidly approaching, and we hope to have a great turnout for the River Hill Independence Day Parade. As in previous years, we will have a “float” (a trailer pulled by a truck) decorated in Pack 702 and patriotic fashion.  The Cub Scouts, along with their parents, will walk the parade route handing out candy and miniature American flags.  A few details so you can prepare:

1. The trailer will be in line for staging at PRES by 8 am.

2. We will decorate the trailer from 8 am to 9 am.  We need people and staple guns – the decorations themselves are already purchased.

3. Restrooms are available at PRES before the parade kicks off.

4. There is no parking at PRES. There is limited parking at Clarksville Middle School for vehicles not in the parade.

5. The parade formally kicks off at 9 am.

6. The parade ends at the River Hill Village Center.  There is a reception for parade participants at the Clarksville Fire Department (they normally have watermelon, popsicles, cookies, etc.).

7. Most people find it advantageous to park and leave a vehicle near the end of the parade route so they have a convenient way home after the parade.

8. Cub Scouts and adult leaders should wear their Class “A” uniforms.

9. Everyone should wear sunscreen.

10. We will provide bottled water in a cooler, to be stored on the trailer.

11. Cub Scouts are expected to walk the parade route, not ride scooters or bikes, not ride on the trailer, or in the towing vehicle.  The purpose of the trailer is to bear the decorations, boxes of candy and flags, the water cooler, and any music amplification device we can get our hands on.

12. Cub Scouts are expected to be on their best behavior, as befits members of BSA, and parents are expected to ensure that this happens. Our mission is to present the public face of BSA, of Cub Scouts, of Pack 702 and its chartered organization (Mt. Zion Church), to help celebrate Independence Day, and to hand out candy and flags to parade observers.

Thank you to all who can participate – this is always a lot of fun for Scouts and parents, and I hope to see you all there.

Cubmaster Dave
