Bake sale/ Nov Pack meeting - 1 or 2 meetings?

Discussion Had - some points made during discussion:

  • have tried to have 1 mtg for all - didn't work. People left and didn't raise much money.
  • not good to get people to donate and bring
  • like idea of silent auction and collect bids
  • silent auction not good
  • time to have second meeting is in Jan - Pinewood derby is its own draw
  • if awards are given in December, then if folks are worried about receiving awards encourage them to attend in December
  • Rank advancements only in Nov
  • Pack meeting is one week earlier in December to minimize interference withChristmas break

Bake sale motion made and seconded: 1 meeting in November with advancementawards only given out and any regular awards given in December at regular pack meeting (12/14 at 7pm)
