Join Pack 623 at our upcoming Space Derby!  

We will be in the MPR on November 6th.  Check-in begins at 1:00.  Racing will be from 2-4, so rockets will need to be checked in before 2!   

Each rank will vie for awards for fastest rocket, most creative rocket, best scout themed rocket and most patriotic rocket!

Please register on the pack website so we can have a general idea of how many patches to buy.  Rocket kits may be purchased at the Scout Shop in Laguna Hills.  Scouts should come dressed in Class A Uniform.  

 We could use some help!  Also during the races we will need a few parents there to wind rockets.  The more help we have the faster we can race and keep the boys entertained:

 - we need at least 1 volunteer to be there at 1:00 to help check in rockets while we set up.

 - We need at least 3-4 volunteers to help wind rockets.

 To learn more about the Space Derby, click on "Files" in the left menu of our pack website, then on "Space Derby Hints".  

Thanks everybody!  Any questions please reach out.

Pack 623 Booth at PHE Fall Fair - 10/21

Posted on Oct 14 2016 - 3:08pm

Show some school spirit and help staff our cub scout booth at the upcoming PHE Fall Fair on Friday, October 21st from 4-8 p.m.!  Volunteer timeslots are short (just 30 minutes apiece) and the ping pong shooter booth is a ton of fun for the scouts to work.  We need one adult and two scouts per shift.  

Please sign up at: 

Please arrive at the cub scout booth a few minutes prior to the start of your shift.  (Since this is a pack-staffed booth, there is no need for you to check in at the volunteer table at the front unless you are also volunteering in other areas of the Fall Fair).
