Debbie Brubaker is our Winter Blast coordinator –

Please contact her with any questions!


All registrations WITH PAYMENTS must be given to Debbie by Wednesday, Jan. 22.

If you had not signed up for the Winter Blast at the pack meeting, you are welcome to swing by our house. We are at 1039 South Humphrey Ave, at the corner of Harvard and Humphrey, brown brick house. If we are not home you can leave an envelope in the mail box.

· $6.00/scout and $3.00/adult. Cost includes snack and patch (for Cub Scouts only).

· If paying by check, please make it out to the Des Plaines Valley Council or DPVC.

· Be sure to note 3 things with your payment: your scout's name, scout rank, and the adult attending.

Many parents have asked if siblings can attend but because of insurance issues only registered scouts can sign up.

Not every Cub Scout needs a parent, but must have a designated guardian. For example: if one dad is willing to bring 3 Cub Scouts, that is fine. (Max ratio is 5:1/boys:adults)

Be sure to dress as if going sledding – good boots, ski pants, hats, scarves, gloves, layers, etc.

After the event, head over to RUSSELL’S BARBEQUE and help raise money for Des Plaines Valley Council. When you tell the cashier you are with Boy Scouts, Russell’s will give 10% of your purchase made between 12:00pm and 2:00pm back to Scouts! Tell your family and friends!
