>This is my first time on Scout-L so let me introduce myself.
>My name is Chuck Kirkland and I am the Cubmaster of Pack 284,
>Patrick Henry Village, Heidelberg, Germany.
>We are a BSA Cub Scout Pack.
>I have just finished Rechartering the Pack.
>The Pack includes 58 Cub Scouts
>21 Adult Volunteers and 11 Tiger Parents.
>We do not pay for the chartering costs of the
>Pack, the Scouts pay.
>They do this by:
>Participation in the annual Bowl-a-thon
>Participation in the annual Christmas Tree Sale
>Individual Fund Raising ( They are allowed to bag for tips
>at the Military Shoppette on the Installation where they live
>twice a month).
>They participated in a Bake Sale at a recent Bazaar.
>They also pay $2 a month for dues which is returned to the Den.
>With their money, they pay for their own registrations, Boys Life Magazine
>and the registeration of the Adults. It also buys them their awards and
>patches, Pinewood Derby Cars, the next Handbook and neckerchiefs
>at Bridging, and pays the cost of a Halloween Party, Blue & Gold Dinner
>and probably other things that don't come to mind.
>I know we are fortunate having the access to bagging, but we are very
>limited in other ways. The Status of Forces Agreement with Germany
>does not let us sell anything outside the US community here.
>The bottomline is the scouts pay their way willingly.
>Annually we raise enough money to pay for Leader Training at CSBLT
>for those that attend. It is our goal to make Cub Scouting available
>to every boy who desires to participate. We even pay their initial
>registration fees and Boys Life.
>There are over 200 Cub Scouts in Heidelberg, and the other Packs have
>similar programs, though not all the above practices are standard.
>Thank You for letting me use your forum.
