UPDATE: Due to weather conditions on February 26, the pack Meeting and Bake off was postponed. We will be integrating the Bake Off into the Blue and Gold Banquet on Sunday March 10.

Our February Pack Meeting will be on Tuesday, February 26 in the Hawkins multipurpose room from 7-8 pm. In addition to Den awards, we will be holding our second annual Akela/Scout Dessert Bake-Off.

Each scout is asked to make their favorite dessert with the assistance of an adult. At the meeting, each scout will be allowed to place a vote for their five favorite entries. Awards will be presented to 3 desserts getting the most votes. Details and rules are below.

Akela/Scout Bake-Off Rules
  1. Any adult can work with the scout.
  2. The baked good must be a homemade dessert and be cut/served in bit sized servings for judging (cut cookies into quarters, etc.)
  3. All entries must be made from scratch. Entries cannot be made from a pre-measured box (cookie or cake mix). Ingredients such as chocolate chips and nuts allowed. M&Ms or crushed candy bars are allowed for use as an ingredient or decoration. Frozen/store bought pie crusts are also allowed.
  4. All entries must be accompanied by a completed entry form which includes the name of the item and a list of ingredients. This important information is used for two reasons: first to qualify the entry, and more importantly, to ensure no one with a food allergy eats something they shouldn't.
    The entry form can be downloaded and printed from the bottom of this page.
  5. Entries should include the signed certification (located at the bottom of the entry form) by mom that certifies the kitchen was returned to the condition it was in (or better) before this adventure began. Leave no Trace.
  6. Please prepare to serve 40. Again cookies or other larger items should be cut into small servings.
  7. Cakes should be pre-cut and please provide utensils if needed.
  8. Plates and napkins will be provided.

On the night of the Pack meeting, registration will open at 6:45 pm. Scouts will check in at the registration table with their desert and entry form. From there, the leaders will place the item one of the judging tables. Each entry will be assigned a number that will be written on the entry form. Do not place your name on the entry form. This will help us ensure fair and unbiased judging.

The Judging will be done by the scouts. Each scout will be given 5 tickets and will be allowed to vote for their 5 favorite desserts. 

Check-in will begin promptly at 6:45 pm. Opening flag ceremony will be at 7:00 pm.

This should be great fun and will meet either a requirement or an elective for each rank -- check your scout handbooks.
