Memorial Day Parade and Service

Pack 183,

Please join us in the Memorial Day Parade on Monday May 25th where we recognize the sacrifices given by so many men and women to keep and protect our freedom.

The event parade starts at Davie Fire administration building at 6901 Orange Drive and ends at the Bergeron rodeo grounds. Please plan to be there at 945am, the parade will leave at 1015am PROMPT, for a memorial service at the rodeo grounds at 11am to 12noon.

I would suggest you park at the rodeo grounds and walk back to the start point, there is better parking there and easier to leave after the service.

Full details, route map, timings and other information on flags and patches are in the attached flier.

Please dress in full class A uniform, bring your Flags (there will flags for sale $1 each), scouts can ride their bicycles if they want (wear helmets please and decorate red, white & blue) and all the family is welcome to join us in the parade.

Cut Your Car Tonight!

Hi everyone,
Our second and final “Cut the Car” night for the Pinewood Derby is tonight Thursday March 12 6:30-7:30pm at Manatee Bay Elementary. This is a chance to get your scout’s wood block cut into the rough shape that he wants.
If you have not received your Pinewood Derby car kit yet we will have them at the school tonight. We will have extra cars available for $5 each at the Cut the Car night.

We want this to be fun for the scouts and the best way to make it fun is to let the scout do the work himself. Win or lose every scout will be rewarded at the Pinewood Derby for his efforts.

Pinewood Derby Rules:
1. Cars can weigh a maximum of 5.0 ounces. The cars will be officially weighed in on the pack scale at the Pinewood Derby.
2. Only powdered graphite is allowed as a lubricant. NO we lubricants are allowed to be used on the axles or wheels.
3. Cars run in the 2015 Pinewood Derby must have been built this year. Previous year’s cars cannot be entered and run.
4. Axles and wheels must be installed in the pre-cut area in the car. No modifications to the axle or wheel are allowed.
5. Wheels and axles must be official BSA Pinewood Derby wheels and axles.
6. Pre-cut cars or kits are not allowed.

If there are any questions please see your den leader or let me know.

Camping Requirements

Hello Pack 183!!!

The camping committee is gearing up to give you a great experience in the Keys next weekend at Camp Sawyer.

During the next week, if you haven’t done so already, we need you to fill out the BSA Annual Health Form for your scout AND take the Youth Protection course as a requirement for camping.

The health form can be filled out online and emailed back to me at –  I do not keep electronic copies of the health form due to privacy issues.  Forms are kept in a folder in the camping trailer.  We are required to have a health form on file for all camping scouts in case of emergencies.

All camping and Tiger parents MUST take the Youth Protection course.  The Youth Protection course is essential to ensure the safety of our scouts and families.

To take Youth Protection training go to  and create an account. From the portal, click on E-Learning and take the Youth Protection training. Upon completion, print a certificate of completion to submit to the Pack Chair, Julie Romaniw, in person or send to

Thank you to those parents who have already sent me their certificates and health forms.

Please let me know of any questions – Julie Romaniw, Pack 183 Commitee Chair –
