Save the Date – Creative Discovery Museum

We are organizing an overnight camp-in to the Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga, May 2 & 3.  If you attended this in the past, you know what a fantastic trip this is for the boys, with lots of hands-on activities and energy expenditure.  The cost is $30 per person, and you can also register for this at the Derby.  Since we have to put down a deposit very soon, we appreciate your timely response.

2014 Blue & Gold Event

Our Annual Blue and Gold Banquet (where each boy who has earned his current rank badge will receive it and the Arrows of Light cross over into the Troop) will be on March 1st at Kennesaw United Methodist Church.  The theme this year is “It’s a Scout World, After All!“, and will focus on the huge impact Scouting makes around the World. There is a small registration fee this year to help cover costs.  It will be $3 per person if you register at the Derby, and $5 thereafter. Active cub scouts of Pack 703 will not be charged. So register at the Derby for the Early Bird rate!
