Woodbadge Patrol Yells

Recommended Posts

How about if we all share our patrol yell/cheer. Just for the fun of it.

Here is my Eagle Patrol cheer.

"The Eagles are Coming, The Eagles are Coming . . .AHHHHHHHHHH!"

The AHHHHH was done while we "tracked" the eagles across the sky with our hands like we were pointing to them. Kinda like from the Lord of the Rings.

Once we also borrowed an Eagle yell from a patrol totem that was given to us by a fellow Eagle

"Eagles Aye, Flying High!"

Lets all share, who is next?

The SR-540 Beavers used four different yells. Our official yell is "chew or die". Our unofficial yells during the course were, "Ward, I'm worried about the Beaver", "good morning Miss Landers" and "gee Wally".

You always hear about the secrecy of Wood Badge Tickets. I say that is not true. If you post here about tickets you get many many responses. Now if you ask about patrol yells you only hear from 4 others. I think the true secrecy in WoodBAdge is in the patrol yells. Come on everyone, lets hear it!!

Our main yell was

 

"Sly as a FOX can't keep us in a box. Yippee, Yippee."

 

We also called ourselves the Foxes that Rockses.

I am a member of the NE-IV-139, "Da Minsi Bears"

 

we had as our song:

 

Bear down, Da Minsi Bears

Make every day a step to victory

Bear down, Da Minsi Bears

We will never forget Gilwell Park and its history

 

We will never forget our fascination

With coping with all the information

 

Bear down, Da Minsi Bears

Let them know you are wearing the crown

Our pride and joy though others we annoy

Da Minsi Bears, Bear Down!!!

 

(which is even better if you know the tune of the fight song of a certain midwestern NFL team from a certain city on the shores of a certain great lake)

 

our cheer is done as follows:

Standing at attention the patrol member says in a loud voice "OH", then turns head to the right and facing down mumbles "bother"

We didn't have a patrol "yell" per se...we clapped our hands everytime someone said "Beavers"..we were SO in tune to it though that by lunch on our 2nd day, our SPL was saying "that patrol who's name starts with a "B" because he was afraid to say Beaver again!! We had a patrol motto though.."with the smack of a tail"

Oh, what wonderful memories.

 

Ours was:

 

Some are old,

and some are bold

but wood badge owls

are good as gold.

 

Since two of my fellow owls were deaf the yell wasn't yelled at all, it was done in sign language.

My favorite from this spring's course was the Antelope Patrol's:

 

"Home, home on the range. Where the deer and the antelope -- HEADLIGHT!!" (Accompanied by a sudden frozen cringe)

 

They varied the intro, but always ended with "HEADLIGHT!". Had us all in stiches.

 

I used to be a staffer, a good old staffer too.

...we clapped our hands everytime someone said "Beavers"..

 

Similar thing with us; we'd slap our leg with open hand.

 

We thought about using "DAm It!" as our yell, but figured that was a tad un-Scoutlike.

 

We made "Buckey Beaver Teeth" from styrofoam and would wear them whenever we could.

 

The flagstaff on the Bobwhite flag mysteriously had "Beaver Chew Marks" on it...

 

Bobwhites would yell "Covey Up!" whenever the Foxes were about.

I'm a Charmin Bear

 

Our yell is "Please don't squeeze the Charmin"

 

We have 2 songs:

 

The first is:

 

I used to be a bear

And a mean old bear too

Ive eaten me an Eagle, a Fox and beaver stew.

Im getting rather hungry

And I dont know what to do

So Im going to catch a staffer if I can

Back to dinner, Frying pan

Im going to catch a staffer if I can

 

and the second is:

Charmin Bears sung to Bear Necessities

 

Look for the Charmin Bears

The woodbadge Charmin Bears

We belong to Gilwell troop 1

We are the Charming bears

The Love to sing and dancing bears

We have the spirit to be # 1.
