Thank you to all the volunteers who came out and helped at Cub & Family this weekend. Also, thank you to those who stepped up at the last minute to provide support. Tuesday afternoon 10/11 we had 350 registered scouts for the 10/14-10/16 weekend (Week 2) of Cub & Family (CNF). By Friday morning, that number of registered scouts jumped to 850 - with an expected total number of 2400 people (scouts, parents & siblings) so the extra volunteer help was greatly appreciated. Thank you also to those who graciously moved their vehicles off the camping field when I asked them too because we were running out of places to put campers. I didn't get to personally thank everyone, but please consider this as a personal thank you. We could not have done it without you. While there were several medical incidents, nothing was life threatening. We had a little rain Friday night, but after that, the weekend was beautiful. Could not have asked for a better weekend. Again - thanks to everyone who volunteered. ... See MoreSee Less
