Cub Scout Round up Nights

Panhandle Exposition

The Panhandle Exposition was on August 10th and 11th in Guymon, OK. We had a large improvement in Scout entries, and, a wonderful display was put together with the help of Bob and Dottie Post, as well as Eva Mussman. Some of our Cub Scouts in Guymon placed well in the Pandhandle Expo this year with everything from homemade bug traps to a neat representation of Pinewood Derby by Bob Post. It is open to kids and adults involved in Scouts alike, and not just in Texas County. We look forward to more entries from all over the Lone Wolf District next year.

Cub Scout Round up Progress

So far, the Lone Wolf District has had eight recruiting events, and has seen some very promising growth so far. The first event on August 16th in Stratford, TX, saw six new young faces join Stratford’s Explorer Post, which is now being processed. Then, we had two events in Guymon, OK, for Academy and Academy “C” Elementary schools, in which 15 new youth were signed up for Cub Scouts. In the same week 17 new scouts were added to Hooker’s Pack 164, and 10 to Goodwell’s Pack 142. The following week also saw quite a few young boys turned into scouts. 9 new faces were added to Boise City’s Pack 146 and 14 youth recruited from Northeast and Homer Long Elementary Schools in Guymon, OK. We have many more events scheduled, and more yet to be scheduled.

New Leadership

Welcome to the Lone Wolf District the new Scout Master for Troop 264 in Hooker, OK, David J. David is the proud father of a scout, as well as a scout himself. Also new to leadership as well as leading a new Explorer Post is Chief Joe Powell in Stratford, TX.
