Crossover and Arrow of Light Ceremonies

Come one, come all!

Our Webelo II’s will be crossing over to Boy Scouting this Saturday, March 6. Everyone in Pack 565 is invited to attend, have a free chili dinner, watch a truly special ceremony, and even camp out if you want to. The night-time ceremony includes a rope bridge and actual flaming arrows. When Erik was a Wolf, we attended, and he has insisted on coming back every year.

We already signed up a bunch of people at the Blue and Gold, but if you’d like to add your names, get back to Jeter (email above in the cc area). Let him know by Thursday so that our host Boy Scout Troop knows how much chili to make. If you already signed up, no need to let us know.

Here are the details:

It occurs at McFarlane Park. From the intersection of Paper Mill Road and Johnson Ferry, go 0.4 miles West and turn left onto Gateside Place. Take an immediate right onto Farm Road. Follow that dirt road to the end.

You can arrive anytime after 4:30 PM on Saturday. Dinner will be at 5:30 PM. The ceremony will begin at 6:15 PM, after which there will be a campfire, and dessert will be served. Everything will be over by about 8:30 to 9:00 PM (except for the usual hooting and hollering that goes on until lights out).

There is also a field for camping if you choose. This is an easy one. Think of it this way: If anything goes wrong in the middle of the night, you can just get in your car and go home. Then come back Sunday morning and get your stuff.

A continental breakfast will also be served on Sunday morning, so let Jeter know if you’ll be camping out, too.

We’ll see you there!

Dress warmly....when the sun goes down, it can be pretty chilly, hats, gloves, and a lap blanket are recommended for us "thin skinned" folks!
