My cord from Leathercordusa.com has finally arrived. This is a project that will see it’s end in the October 2011 Pack meeting. I am using this Turkshead to help bring the Boys and Leaders into the Pack. Generally each October a fresh crop of Scouts will earn their Bobcat at this meeting. I am going to induct EACH Scout from Tiger to Webelos II into the Pack along with each Den Leader.
In September it’s called Join Night. It’s not come hang out with us night, nor come to a meeting night. It’s JOIN NIGHT! Because of that, the boys need to understand that they belong to something. It’s not baseball or soccer. But Scouting is a family. Adults and Boy Scouts talk about when they first joined Scouts. Soccer and baseball are seasonal, Scouting is every season.
All this being the case, once the Scouts are inducted into the Pack, I will give them this woggle. It’s theirs. They own it. A part of the Pack. It’s not a simple metal object that they used to have and lose, but this is what shows everyone that they are a part of something special.
I have about 50 to make. These are three of them.
