We hope everyone had a nice vacation and that your New Year is off to a good start.

Our pack meeting this month is coming up fast. It is this Saturday, January 11th. We'll be hiking South Mountain, starting at the Council's Heard Scout Pueblo (map attached).

We'll meet at 1:30 at the Heard Scout Pueblo (1901 E Dobbins Rd, Phoenix 85042).  See the attached map for directions, where to park and where to meet once you're there. We'll cover a some dos and don'ts of hiking and then get started at 2 on the hike. The hike is a little over one mile and is expected to take about 2 1/2 hours. The first part of the hike is relatively easy; towards the end, we will be doing more rock hopping to get to an interest point (petroglyphs). 

Things to bring:
sunscreen and/or hat
good shoes for hiking 
Class B t-shirt
We're looking forward to a fun adventure. The weather is expected to be in the high 60's, dress accordingly (and check the weather as it gets closer). It's always a good idea to have layers that you can add or remove as needed. Did we mention to bring water? 

If you have any questions, please contact your den leader or me.

In Scouting,
Cubmaster Gilly
