Blue and Gold

The Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet is held by our Pack in February every year in honor of the Boy Scout's birthday.  It is the time when the boys pin on their currant rank after working this school year to complete the achievements.  Usually there is some kind of them and contest between dens, a dinner or lunch, and then a ceremony.  This year's theme was "carnival" and all the dens came up with carnival games.  The boys spent a few hours playing the games for prizes, eating popcorn, cotton candy, and sandwiches before the ceremony. - (Left) Micah and Grant show off their popcorn during the game time of the carnival.
Our wolf den had 2 booths (since we're technically 2 dens combined).  Pictured above is our Milk-Bottle knock down game which won the award for most fun game!  To the right you can see the edge of the pool for our other game "Duck Pond" (you had to pick 3 ducks and add the numbers on the bottoms to get your prize number)

This time I made SURE to get a picture of Noah helping! 

another cool booth was the airbrush tattoos!  Here is a picture of most of the wolf den in front of our game booth (3 of the scouts weren't able to make it) and you can see some of their  tattoos in the picture.

Before the ceremony started we gathered the whole Pack together for a group picture.  What a fantastic group of kids and Moms!
Here are the pictures from the rank ceremony for the Wolves.  The parents pin the rank on with a special pin - upside down - on the boys' uniform.  Once the scout has done a good turn then they take the patch and sew it right side up on the uniform and give the pin to their parent. 

After all the dens earned their rank Mom had to make some very special presentation to a few of our leaders who are PCS'ing this year

Closing Flag ceremonies performed by the Wolf Den.  Micah was the announcer to retire the colors.
