Submarine Outing Signup

This spring, Pack 10 will be camping out on a submarine,  the USS Silversides!  We will arrive to board the submarine at 6PM in Muskegon, MI, and then depart the next morning.

USS Silversides

Information about the submarine itself: The Silversides received twelve battle stars for World War II service, and was awarded one Presidential Unit Citation for cumulative action over four patrols. She is credited with sinking 23 ships, the third-most of any allied World War II submarine, behind only the USS Tang and USS Tautog. The tonnage of the ships sunk by Silversides amounted to 90,080 tons, second only to Tang’s total. Judged by such standards, Silversides has the most prolific combat record of any still-extant American submarine. We will have the opportunity to spend the night in the bunks of the sailors who earned these distinctions.
At this point, the event is approximately 80% filled. Those who indicated interest need to confirm their reservation by making payment within seven days of making that reservation on evite. If payment is not made within 7 days, the reservation will be automatically cancelled. If anyone still has interest, please have them go to evite ASAP to reserve spots. If they did not get the evite electronically, please ask them to e-mail Chip Mitros at

Popcorn Pickup

Please pick up your ordered popcorn from Rick Thyen, 52357 Brendon Hills Drive, Granger IN 46530 on Saturday, November 12th, after the scavenger hunt and before 2PM.
Then, your scout can deliver popcorn to all of his customers.  Ring the doorbell, thank the customer for supporting scouting, and collect payment (if necessary).  Popcorn may be left on the front porch only if the customer paid in advance.  (Be careful not to leave orders with chocolate in the sun!)
If you have an outstanding balance, please make payment for the popcorn at pickup time.
In any case, all payments must be complete no later than the Nov 28th pack meeting.
Thank you for participating in the popcorn sale; the fundraiser makes it possible to have fun throughout the year!
If you have any questions about popcorn, please contact Rick Thyen (

Archery Outing Signup

Our December outing will be an archery lesson at Michiana Archery (50510 State Road 933 North, South Bend, IN) on Saturday, December 10th.   No experience is needed: scouts will receive a lesson in how to use archery equipment safely and then do target practice under professional supervision.  Each scout can sign up for a 90 minute session.

This event is arranged by the council, so you must sign up individually by filling out this registration form and mailing it in as soon as possible.  Make sure to sign the second page and include a check for $25 payable to “Michiana Archery” for each scout.  We suggest that you request session 1, 2, or 3, so that Pack 10 is more likely to be in the same session.  Space is limited, so sign up right away!



Popcorn Fundraiser

Popcorn sales support pack activities throughout the year. We ask every scout in grades 1-5 to contribute by selling some popcorn. (Lion scouts do not do fundraising.) If a scout sells more than $250, we will waive the $50 cost for the scout to participate in the spring outing to the USS Silversides.  (A paying parent will still need to attend with the scout.)

To sell popcorn door to door:

  1. Use the popcorn sales form handed out at the pack meeting, or print one out here.
  2. Practice a simple sales pitch: “Hello, I’m selling popcorn so I can go camping with my Cub Scout pack. Would you like to see the choices?” Smile and say please and thank you. Wear a uniform, it helps!
  3. Parents, accompany your scout from a distance, but let him do the talking. Remind him to wait outside if the customer needs to fetch a checkbook. To take an order, write it down on the order sheet and collect a check payable to “Cub Scout Pack 10”.
  4. Return the form and collected checks to the pack treasurer, Rick Thyen, 52357 Brendon Hills Drive, Granger IN 46530, no later than October 17th.
