Registration for Pi Day is CANCELED
Good morning Scouters,
This morning, we have learned, that our event host, Fox Valley Technical College, in response to the COVID-19 virus, has deemed it necessary to close their campus to outside programming as a preventative measure. Due to this we are sorry to say, that the Bay-Lakes Council PI Day event, scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020 has been cancelled.
All PI Day registrants will be issued a full refund of their participant fees. The Bay-Lakes Council staff will begin issuing refunds early next week.
Registrants who have pre-ordered t-shirts and sweatshirts will still receive these items. We will work with your local District Executive/Director to organize the distribution of these items. More details about this process will be forthcoming.
Even though we cannot hold the event in-person, PI Day volunteers will be sharing via Facebook LiveStream, some of the planned experiments that would have occurred at the Saturday event. This way, Scouts and their families can join in the PI Day experience virtually from the safety of their homes. We will be sending all PI Day participants the link and schedule for these LiveStream session shortly.
We are truly sorry for this unexpected turn-of-events and any inconvenience this causes. Please know that the safety of our Scouts, volunteers and their families is always of the utmost importance.
Hello Pi Day Participants,
We are less than a week away from the most fun a Scout can have on Pi Day!
Please read the following information carefully.
Registration will begin for all participants at 7:00 am on 3.14. Please do not come into the buildings before 7:00 am. The volunteer staff will be working very hard to make sure everything is ready for the day. We need that time to prepare to put on this very full, very involved event. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Scouts BSA members and Adults will be on the Main Campus. Cub Scouts and the adult partners for Lions, Tigers, and Special Needs Cubs will be on the Bordini campus. These are two different buildings.
Registration for the Main Campus, will be just inside Door 16. The address for FVTC is 1825 N Bluemound Dr, Appleton, WI 54912. When you pull into the campus at the roundabout, take the road to the right and follow it around to the side of the building. You will see the door with 16 marked over the entrance. This is the only entrance you should use for the Main Campus in the morning. Registration will be immediately inside these doors along with apparel pick up. Scouts & Adults will be directed into one of the 2 large rooms for the opening ceremony. Please remind your Scouts BSA members to bring their prerequisites and filled out blue cards with them.
Registration & apparel pick up for Cub Scouts and the adult partners for Lions, Tigers, and Special Needs Cubs will be at the Bordini campus. You will go in the doors at the South entrance. The address for the campus is 5 N Systems Dr, Appleton, WI 54914. This campus is very full. We have recruited wonderful, well trained, experienced leaders for this program. To remain in compliance with the fire codes, adults will not be able to attend programming with Wolves, Bears, or Webelos. Adult partners are required to attend with Lions, Tigers, and Special Needs Scouts. We have smaller numbers of these groups to allow space for the adult partners that are required by National for participation.
We have taken steps to make sure that the registering adult’s contact information is available to the leaders of the Cub Program. Should there be a concern or if your child need to get in contact with you, we will reach out right away. You can update this information at registration. There is an Adult area & Leader Lounge available, in addition to all adult training on the Main Campus which is right across the road from the Bordini campus. You can see this in the maps by following the links listed below. Adults who are Lions, Tigers, Special Needs, or Cub Scout Pi Day Staff will eat lunch at the Bordini campus. All other adults will eat at the main campus. This is necessary for space requirements, and lunch counts for each campus. We want to make sure every Scout gets enough to eat to keep them going for the afternoon fun!
There is an arrival map posted on the event home page https://www.scoutingevent.com/635-PiDay as well as information available on the Bay Lakes STEM Facebook page and in the Pi Day 2020 event on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/stem-bay-lakes-council-bsa/pi-day-2020/248564189466615/
Closing for Cub Scouts will be from 3:30 to 4:00pm. This should give you enough time to pick up your Cubs and head on over to the Main Campus closing starting at 4:15 and concluding before 5:00pm in the West Parking lot just outside door 13 for our EPIC ROCKET LAUNCH!!! This really is a spectacular thing to see as our Space Exploration Merit Badge Participants complete their final launch for the day. More than 20 rockets will take flight simultaneously as our Pi Day event concludes for 2020 and we start looking forward to < Pi Day on March 13th 2021.
There will be a Mini Scout Shop at Pi Day with a selection of things scouts like: BSA branded items, crafts, science kits, gifts, Merit Badge Books, t-shirts, and uniform essentials. We will have a good selection of small items under $20 for scouts that would like to have spending money with them. The Mini Shop will be located in the main campus in room near door 16 and will be open during registration through lunch. For more selection you can also stop by the main scout shop located at 2555 Northern Road (just of 41 & Prospect Ave a few minutes from FVTC) which is open on Saturday from 10am-3pm. Since we will have limited selection at Pi Day, if you would like to pre-purchase anything special (ex: uniform pants in a specific size or units who would like to purchase awards), you can do so by calling the Scout Shop at 920-831-9504, they can pull the items and you can pay ahead with credit card or unit accounts so you can just pick up at Pi Day.
There will be a council representative at Pi Day selling Camp Shirts at HUGE discounts!!! Shirts will be 1 for $2 or 3 for $5. At those prices, everyone in your unit can have a different shirt for each day of camp! Make sure you stop by and check out their inventory.
We look forward to seeing you there. Our volunteer staff has been working very hard for many months to make sure this event is one that your Scouts will be talking about for a long time. If you have the opportunity, please thank one of these amazing people who have worked countless hours leading up to our event. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we will see you on Pi Day!
