  1. Thank you for all the replies, guys! Sounds like it's a "no" then---they switched me over to cubmaster before the ink had dried on the pack committee minutes in November! That's fine. Just thought I'd double-check to be sure, and I wasn't sure where to turn. It's not THAT important to me, I was just a bit disappointed that it wasn't possible now due to a technicality. I appreciate all the guidance! As for whether or not I'm in it for the "bling" or the boys, I'm actually a little offended you would even question that, perdidochas. It appears as though the BSA program---especially Cub Scou
  2. So, I've been the den leader for my son's Tiger den since the beginning of the school year. I've been diligently tracking and planning super fun activities for the boys every two weeks, as well as doing everything necessary to earn the den leader training award knot. Halfway through the year, our cubmaster stepped down and, because I said I would "help", and no other parent responded to the plea for volunteers, I was named cubmaster by default. It was awkward since I am brand new to the program, but I've tried to embrace the position, while still keeping up with my den responsibilities.
  3. So do you just sprinkle them throughout the meeting, pulling a new one out each time? Or do you pull one at the beginning and teach it, then use it for the rest of the night when the kids should cheer for something? I think our roundtable commissioners do it after the leader recognition awards (so, in a pack meeting, it would correlate to the recognition section of the meeting). But that's the only time they pull one.
  4. This may be a silly question, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to incorporate the cheers/applauses into a den/pack meeting. These fun little devices are all over the Leader How-To Guide, meeting plans, and Internet resources, but I haven't found a good explanation for how to work this into a meeting. I've seen them used at District Roundtables, but it seems very awkward and the roundtable leaders tend to gloss over them---they do one just once during a meeting and move on quickly. I love the Cheer detergent box they use---everyone screams when it's opened---but the cheers themsel
  5. Okay, thank you! Just didn't want to mess something up on our first trip! It's just about 10 minutes away from school too, so I figured it wasn't that big of a deal, but just wanted to be sure. Thank you guys again!
  6. Hello! This is my first time posting, but I've been lurking for a few months. You guys are a wealth of information! Hoping you can help clarify something for me. I'm the Den Leader for a small group of Tiger Cubs. In a few weeks, we will be taking a Go-See-It to do a tour at a TV station, but the station had to schedule it during the workday because they have to work around schedules and newscasts. Our den usually meets in the evening because we have several parents that work outside of the home. We might have one or two kids who may need transportation to the Go-See-It. (Yes, I know Tige
