Join us for the annual PACK 809 Spring Campout in Danville’s backyard, Mount Diablo State Park. There will be a lot of fun hiking around Rock City, looking for tarantulas, skits, s’mores and more.  Join us for a great outdoor experience with your scout!! (note: moms and dads are welcome)

Your scout must be registered with Boy Scouts and have paid the registration fee to attend.

Live Oak campground is less than 30 minutes away and close to Rock City!  It doesn’t get any easier for this much fun. The pack will provide all meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

Pack meeting at SRVHS, April 18 6:30p

For our April Pack meeting, we have been invited by the San Ramon Valley robotics team to visit their robotics studio on Wednesday, April 18. This will be an offsite meeting at San Ramon Valley high school and it will be a two hour meeting from 630 to 830.  This will be a hands-on event where the boys will be building and possibly using some of the robots.

Please RSVP so the robotics team can prepare adequately.  Below is what we will be learning:

  • Basic tools and Machinery and a tour of the Machine Shop
  • A Demo of our FRC Power Up! Robot
  • An Overview of Lego Mindstorms with a building and programming workshop
  • An FLL Presentation for Parents
  • And a chance to drive an FRC Robot

The location is San Ramon Valley High School which is at 501 Danville Blvd, Danville, CA 94526. The auto shop is near the PAC parking lot on the side closest to the iron horse trail. There is a fence around it so it should be fairly easy to find!
