Remembering Dad Pete
Grab a hankie and join your scout friends on Sunday, Nov 28th at 3pm ET in the Quiet Room, to celebrate the many many contributions Timmy and Einie’s dad Pete made to Cat Scouts.
2021 Cat Scout Jamboree
Because Einie’s dad Pete passed away this week, we are postponing the Jamboree. It has always been meant as a big celebration, and it’s hard to celebrate when sadness has a vase grip around your gonads. The Denmaster is a teary-eyed mess right now–the year has taken its toll.
Jamboree Activity Packs
Activity packs should be arriving if you signed up to get one. As I see additional scouts bemoaning the fact they didn’t sign up early enough for a pack, I’ll drop another pack in the mail. They’re being shipped priority mail. You’ll be getting beachcombing materials, stuff for a couple of crafts projects and your very own Beach Bingo card. Leave your shipping addy in the Jamboree group if you’re late signing up!
CSWHQ Now Has a Home!
CSWHQ is now conveniently a block from the beach in Washington.
As if a widowhood and an interstate move weren’t enough, the denmaster has breast cancer and will have surgery within the next week or two. For every medical test and procedure, she has to drive 2-1/2 hrs to the airport, fly 2 hrs to California and back again, usually the same day. So yeah, the denmaster has kinda fallen off the face of the earth. But once surgery is over and treatment starts she’ll be back at scouts with a vengeance.
