May Pack Outing – THIS SATURDAY 4-6pm, Bridle Trails
We’re excited to go hiking with you! We will meet at the main parking lot at Bridle Trails State Park. A Discover Pass is required to park in the lot, but street parking is free, and you can walk to the lot. We will be doing the Trilum Trail nature hike. There is a Sign-Up Genius for this event (it’s just so we don’t leave you behind), but if you forget to sign up, please come anyway!

May Pack Meeting – Wednesday, May 19, 7pm, Marymoor Soccer Field 4
What fun we had with boomerangs! My scouts actually were able to get them to come back, which amazed me! This month we will be spending a bit more time with our specific dens and prepare to congragulate our scouts who are crossing over into Scouts BSA. We will be meeting at Marymoor Park, soccer field 4 – different field than last time (map: marymoor_park_map_web_16.pdf (kingcounty.gov)). Masks and social distancing are required.

 Upcoming meetings: Potentially we will have a rocket launch in June. More details to come.
