Site Sales Posted!

Published on September 21, 2015,


We have a handful of Site Sales posted coming up for selling popcorn at the QFC at 42nd. This is a great location because it is indoor and both of the main entrances to the store go right past where the scouts set-up!

Please sign up soon and pick a spot. If we end up with free spots we will open them up to other Cub Scout Packs. If we need more, I’ll fight for more.



Popcorn Tip: Ask for the Sale!

Published on September 21, 2015,

OliverPopcornPopcorn Tip from Oliver!

Oliver and his mom were picking up popcorn from the popcorn kernel in a garage on an alley. He had just been practicing his popcorn selling skills when a car came down the alley and was trying to go past his mom’s parked car. Oliver spoke with the driver and told him he was selling popcorn for Cub Scouts and the driver bought a Sweet and Savory! Oliver got 10% of his quota by just asking for the sale!

Remember that people want to help Cub Scouts. Ask potential customers if they want to help Cub Scouts before asking if they want to buy popcorn.

Great Job Oliver!!


Popcorn Pick-up!

Published on September 19, 2015,

AskMeAbout PopcornThe First two Popcorn Pick-up times are this weekend. The location is the garage on the backside of the popcorn kernel home at 4010 42nd Ave SW. It is best to go south on the alley between 41st and 42nd from Andover. This would minimize congestion due to Westfest.

  • Saturday 9/19 2 PM – 4 PM
  • Sunday 9/20 11 AM – 1 PM

We also have limited quantities of “Ask Me about Cub Scout Popcorn” buttons available. This is a great way to generate additional interest while at Westfest!

community meal

WHEN: August 30, 2015 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm (Set-up 10AM – 1 PM)
WHERE: Our Lady of Guadalupe Church

7000 35th Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA 98126

The Cub Scouts of Pack 793 will be hosting the Our Lady of Guadalupe Community Meal on August 30th 1PM to 3:30 PM. We will be cooking and serving to about 100 people! Please come early to set-up at 10 AM and help clean-up afterwards. Even if you are only able to come for a few hours, please join anytime!

The community meal is a monthly, free sit-down meal held at OLG in the Parish Life Center/Gymnasium. Everyone in the community is invited to attend. It is conducted ‘restaurant style’ where the guests are served at their tables. The goal is to provide a hot meal once a month for those in our community, in particular for those who may not regularly have a hot meal. Inviting the whole community provides a way for all of us to share a meal and conversation together. OLG receives additional volunteers from other West Seattle churches and service groups (youth and adult).

Please remember to wear your uniforms and bring your manners!


West Seattle Parade Reminder for July 18th, and DRUMS!

Published on July 2, 2015,

ParadeThe West Seattle Parade is coming up on July 18th. We usually meet on California near the Safeway, but we will let you know once we have confirmation. We have invited all other scouts in the area to join us so this might be a big event.

Traditionally the scouts walk from the start to the end. Siblings are encouraged to attend. Parents or guardians are a must to be with the scouts to get keep them aligned, watered down and most importantly to pick them up at the end. It is challenging to shuttle the scouts back to the start due to the crowds, so it is best to carpool with other families and leave a car at the end.

The scouts are encouraged to bring bikes, scooters, cub mobiles or other items like that as long as they bring protective gear. We will need the scouts to pass out candy along the way. Additionally we will have two rocket launchers in the parade this year so we will need dedicated scouts to help pump, pass out eye protection, load the launchers and assist the kids from the crowd.

…and we have something new this year!

Cub Scout Recycled Bucket Drum Corps!

This group will be for any age scout. The scouts will meet with scout leaders 3-4 times prior to the parade for practice. One of the leaders is an actual drum instructor! Location details and times are TBD. The scout would carry a bucket (think Home Depot) and play some basic beats on the bottom. Drums, sticks and instruction are provided. Scouts just need to bring a great attitude!

No Experience Necessary!

If interested in the drum corps, send an email to brian@the-christensons.com


Got July 3rd Plans? How about a Hike?

Published on July 2, 2015,
Denny CreekDenny Creek Water slide and Keekwulee falls is where we will go!  It is an easy mile hike to a big flat rock formation that the creek runs over and makes a natural slide.  Traffic might be bad getting to exit 47 on I-90 – but the water slide is cool.  Later in the summer it will be dried up.
  • 10:00 AM meet at Denny Creek trail head parking lot
  • 10:20 AM hike to keekwulee falls
  • 11:00 AM head back down and stop at Denny creek water slide to cool off
  • 12:30 arrive back at cars or bring sack lunch and eat at falls?
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Swim Clothes
  • Sun Screen
  • Towel
  • Sturdy walking shoes
  • Great Attitude
  • Webelos can bring their 10 essentials if they have them.

Parking is tight, so please try to carpool with another family if possible.

This Hike is on federal land so you need a Northwest Forest Pass – NOT the Discover pass.
You can get a NW Forest pass at the following: Recreation Pass Info — Washington Trails Association
 You can go online and print a 1 day pass too.
Car pooling is the way to go because the PASS cost and crowds.

Driving Directions (official directions)

From Seattle, head east on I-90 to exit 47 Denny Creek/Tinkham Road. At the top of the exit ramp turn left and cross over the freeway. Go .2 miles and turn right at the stop sign onto Forest Road 58. The road crosses under the freeway and after .2 miles turn left. Continue ahead for 2.4 miles and take a left just after Denny Creek Campground and pass the Franklin Falls trailhead. The road here is fairly potholed so use caution. Cross a bridge and it’s just .2 miles further to the trailhead.
