PERSONNEL: Cubmaster, Advancing Cub Scouts and Parents.
EQUIPMENT: Viking costumes, old chest to hold awards, "Crew Roster" with the Cub Scout Promise.
ARRANGEMENT: Cubmaster is center stage with "Crew Roster" and chest of "booty". As the Cub Scouts names are called, they come forward with their parents and "sign on" by signing the crew roster.
CUBMASTER: Tonight we gather as Cub Scout Vikings to sign on new members to our band and to reward those who meet the requirements. Just as Leif Ericson first sailed to Vinland on the continent called North America, we have new members called Bobcats who are discovering the experience called Cub Scouting. Will the following Bobcats step forward with their parents and sign the Cub Scout Viking crew roster.
(Bobcat candidates sign roster. Cubmaster asks Bobcats to repeat Promise, Law of the Pack, meaning of Webelos, and salute. Cubmaster takes awards from chest and gives to parents to present to their sons and mother's pins to present to parents.
CUBMASTER: Like the Viking sea rovers of old, we venture over the seas of Scouting in search of new and rewarding experiences. Let us call the Cub Scouts who have earned the Wolf rank forward with their parents to repledge their loyalty by signing the crew roster and to receive their rewards.
(Calls Wolf Cubs and parents forward and presents awards)
CUBMASTER: Our Viking ancestors were aggressive in pursuing new territories. Likewise, our Bear Cubs have been aggressive in completing all requirements for the Bear Badge. Will the following Bear Cubs and their parents please come forward to repledge their loyalty by signing the crew roster and to receive their rewards.
