What a turnout we had for our Blue and Gold Banquet! We had close to 200 people there on Saturday night. More incredibly, 68 of our boys were present! We filled up the great hall of the new Christian Life Center at Eastminster Presbyterian Church! Our veteran of seven years, Cindy M., says that was the largest Blue and Gold she’s ever witnessed.

Many thanks to the many people who helped this event come off. Thanks to all who helped clean up and stack chairs afterwards. A big thank you to you kitchen volunteers before, during, and after. An especially enormous thanks to Joseph and Delitha C. who spent the better part of 24 hours working to make sure all were fed. (I really liked that spicy dipping sauce; what was that?)

We saw some great skits and some other amazing and surprising things. Thanks, Scouts, for entertaining us.

I hope all of you got some great photos of your boy being honored. If not, I’ll be forwarding some of the photo sites later.

We’ll see all of you at the next big Pack event – our first annual inaugural NASCAR box race! It will be in the church parking lot on Tuesday, March 24th. We’ll all be in our yellow tee-shirts for that event. If any of you Dads out there have ever wanted to be a NASCAR track announcer, here is your chance. Email me back and we’ll put you behind a microphone announcing our 40-lap Cubmaster 500. (I think that’s in furlongs.)

See you soon!
