May Pack Meeting – Pizza Party and Egg Drop

May 5 @ 6:15 pm 7:30 pm

Arrive at 6:15 for check-in – Egg Drop begins at 6:30

Limited Parking: Please park at Big Y or Trinity Church and walk over to the firehouse.

Join us for our next pack meeting on May 5, where we will be having a PIZZA PARTY and conducting an EGG DROP contest from the top of a ladder fire truck!


Design and build a container that will protect an egg from breaking when dropped from the extended ladder of a fire truck!

Contest Rules

  • Participants must be cub scouts, siblings, or parents. The container must be clearly marked with the Scout’s name.
  • A raw egg is provided by each scout and cannot be wrapped in tape, coated in glue and/or latex cement, or other materials that will prevent the judges from checking for cracked eggs.
  • No parachute designs.
  • Dropping a live chicken is not permitted! You must create your own container.
  • All material for the container and inside padding must be supplied by the cub scout. Suggestions include, but are not limited to, Jell-O, cooked pasta, popcorn, crushed newspaper, plastic, styrofoam peanuts – use your imagination!
  • The container can be no bigger than 12″ x 12″ x 12″
  • All containers will be inspected before the drop to make sure they are secure and ready for the drop.
  • The drop will be conducted by the firefighters at Hook and Ladder.


We will be having a pizza party for scouts AND their parents during the egg drop, courtesy of CT Yankee Council, BSA.
