A huge shout out to Herb Ryder and Dan McDonald for giving their whole day to organize our Pack 1980 cub car station!!!  Thank you to all of our Pack 1980 Leaders and parents who supported our pack at ScoutFest by donating an hour or two to run our cub car station or chaperone scouts of parent volunteers.  Thank you to Scott Mikaelian, Scott Armstrong, and Herb Ryder for keeping so many of our cub cars running throughout the day, despite the hard miles put on each one. Thanks to our scouts who also lent a hand with the cub car station to wave the flags for set-up, start, final lap, and finish.

Thank you also to Herb Ryder for being our Pack 1980 Leader for ScoutFest (by attending all of the meetings that led up to this event) and by being our leader in camp at ScoutFest for all of the Pack 1980 Scouts who ate Saturday dinner and camped over either Friday or Saturday night at ScoutFest!
