Pack 565 Families,

We had our Pack 565 fishing derby yesterday. We had a great turnout; in fact, the entire fishing derby was comprised of our Cubs and families. I’m not sure where the City of Marietta was, but our Pack sure had a good time AND we were not arrested for poaching. Almost everyone caught a fish. Those that didn’t, caught a turtle or at least a big stick.

Nicholas A., our Pro fisherman, caught the largest fish. It was over 14 feet long (maybe I got the units wrong) and as you can see from the photos below, it caused quite a stir amongst the other fisher-people.

The fish weren’t quite biting like last year when it was overcast, but they were still out there. Two of our brand new Tigers, Patrick S. and Andrew K., caught the most fish. One caught 7 and the other one caught 9 (I forget which).

The best part was that no one got snagged by a hook and no first aid had to be administered. At the end of the morning, the yellow tee shirts weighed a little more from the mud, worm guts, and pond slime, but that was the mark of a GREAT TIME!

We’ll see you at our next event, the Pack 565 Pool Party Roundup. It will be on Friday evening at 5:00 PM on August 7 (the weekend before school starts) at the Princeton Mill pool (where it was last year). More details to come. We’ll see you there!
