Good Evening Marines and Dogs of the Pack,

I have spoken with the Officers of the Department of NJ and NJ Pack and we have all agreed that we are going to cancel the Hotel for the Convention for 2021.  If you have made reservations please cancel them at your convenience.  We will try this again for 2022.  In its place we will be having a one day Mini-Convention on July 17, 2021 at Sea Girt Military Base.  There is a covered pavilion to the left of the main gate as you come on that can accommodate us.  

Doors will open so to speak at 0830 and the meeting will begin at 0900.  This will be an abridged Convention with reports awards etc in the am.  I am working on getting a food truck or food for lunch at a reasonable price.  If not, there are local restaurants in Sea Girt and Manasquan. The afternoon session will be finishing up the morning business along with nominations, elections and the Installation of Officers for 2021-2022.  

On the Pack level I am also looking to have a Pack Grand Growl July 24, 2021 at the Freehold Elks where we had the last Growl.  We will have the same format that we did last year with the normal chaos along with Nominations, elections and Installation of Pack Officers.  There will be pizza at the end of the Growl.  I will send more information to the Pack as things get finalized.

We will still be putting together an ad book so please all Detachment and Pound send in an add to support the Department.  The information is on the Department website.

Because we will be holding elections we need to register Delegates.  The new Delegate Registration form is attached.  If you have already sent in payment and the old form please fill out the new form and just send it in without payment.  We know who paid.  

I also attached the directions for Department Marine of the Year and Pack Dog of the Year.  Please get this together and mail to the Department and Pack as directed.  

Please pass this along to all Department, Detachment, Pack and Pound members. 

 Any questions please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

Semper Fi,
