Scout Graduation

In May, the Cub Scouts had a little graduation ceremony/picnic where they moved on to the next rank. Jarin went from being a wolf to being a bear. They did a skit with fake wolf teeth and ran to pick up their bear scarves in their teeth.
After the ceremony all the Scouts lined up to fill up their water guns.
The local fire department came and talked about fire safety
They showed the boys all the equipment on the truck
Then they unleashed 500 gallons of water. It was a hot day, so the water was refreshing!

Fishing Derby 2011

In May, Jarin's Pack held their annual fishing derby. Several Boy Scouts from Justin's troop helped to teach some classes/stations to the younger boys. Justin had one station on Fish Identification.
All the trophies
One of the stations was baiting a line with a cane pole

Getting ready. Choosing the perfect bobber

Fish!!!
Fishing takes concentration
Jarin's Pack
Jarin won a trophy for the most fish caught. It was purely coincidental that where he was fishing was a jackpot for bites.
