Our district is bringing back a tradition called Cub Ball. It is a great way to play ball with 1st
through 5th grade boys in your own pack and with other cub scouts in the area. This activity is excellent
for those who are developing skills and for all-stars. The rules facilitate a more action packed game
where every boy is a slugger and gets to play every position throughout the season. A soft-style
baseball is used with adult underhand pitch. See other page for rule details. The cost will be $10
Games will be in a field near you Tuesday and Thursday evenings July 26th through August 11. 6-
evenings. Warm up starts at 6:15pm. Games go from 6:30pm to around 7:45pm. Even if a boy can
attend only one game, it is worth the fee. Counts toward summer activity.
It will be suitable if your pack can form a whole team (8-14 players) or more than one team. But if not,
your participating scouts will be combined with boys from another pack. We need a team leader/coach
from each pack. The more additional assistant coaches the better. No baseball or coaching experience
is necessary. On-line Youth Protection course required. Only registered scouts allowed to participate.
Cub Ball really is a lot of fun for both the boys AND parent spectators. If they are not in little
league, then this is the chance to experience the game and succeed. Often boys are thrilled for the
first time to hit a ball. Please contact the district Cub Ball director before May 31.
…more details to follow.

To start a campership fund in Tom O'Malley's memory, we need $500. We are asking people to donate whatever is in their heart, & if they would like to donate to this campership to write a check made payable to the "Community Foundation of the Fox Valley". This is a memorial campership to remember Tom for all the things he has done over the years for scouting, and one of his passions was to make sure every scout got an opportunity to go to camp. You can give checks to Tom Brooks or Maritsa Herrera and they will get them to where they go.
