Blue & Gold Banquet ~ Utah National Parks Council - Cub Scout Themes - PowWow Books - Pack Meeting Plans

This information for holding a Blue & Gold Banquet was in the 2008-2009 Utah National Parks Council PowWow book.  This is a great idea, and many of the things that were used back then can still be used today.

Blue & Gold Banquets

Everyone likes to celebrate their birthday, and Cub Scouting is no exception. A Blue and Gold banquet is a birthday dinner for Cub Scouting, usually held in February. Why February? Well, that’s the anniversary month of the Boy Scouts of America (organized in February 1910) and also the birthday of Scouting’s founder, Lord Baden-Powell (February 22). The celebration is called the Blue and Gold in honor of the Cub Scout colors.
PLAN your Blue and Gold banquet as early as possible to avoid conflicting with other
events. Start planning at your annual
program planning
conference and follow
up at your monthly pack
leaders meeting. A good
time to hold your banquet is
on your regular pack meet-
ing night. If this is not possible, then have calendars available from schools and other organizations affecting the members (such as your chartering organization) so that the Blue and Gold is not planned on the same night as other functions.

involve more people and make less work. Ask parents face-to-face and one-on-one to do a definite job. Let them know exactly what you want them to do and how much time their involvement will take. You can also ask people in your chartering organization for help, and even friends and neighbors. Don’t forget to say thank you.
What kind of committees do you need? You could have a committee for:
PHYSICAL ARRANGEMENTS: Where will we hold the event, how many tables and chairs, do we need special equipment? 
DECORATIONS: What is the theme, how can we decorate for that theme?
INVITATIONS: Who do we invite, what should we use for invitations?
FOOD: What shall we eat, how should it be
financed, how should it be served?
PROGRAM: What entertainment should
we have?
should be boy-made
if possible. Nothing brings a smile to an
adult as quickly as receiving an invitation made by a
boy. Remember to put all five “W’s” on the invitations: who, what, when, where and why.
Cub Scouts can make and deliver invitations to their own families with an R.S.V.P. They can invite moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles, family friends.
Invitations to special guests should be mailed well in advance and contain an R.S.V.P. Who are these special guests? They can include, but are not limited to, the head of the chartering organization, the chartered organization representative, the district executive, the unit com- missioner, Scoutmaster, former unit leaders, and anyone who has made a contribution or an impact upon your pack. Boys who will joining your pack in the upcoming year should also be specially invited guests.

DINNER – Everyone wants to know what’s to eat. Try to center the menu around your theme and make the menu boy-friendly. Decide who will cook the meal and how it will be served. What you serve and how you serve it will be determined by your budget and what your pack prefers to eat. You can try:
CATERED: Meals are prepared through local restaurants or catering services. This is the most expensive form, and may require fundraisers or financing by charging per plate. SEMI-CATERED: Prepared food can be purchased in large quantities. Pack leaders could serve the food buffet style. Some packs pro- vide the main dish such as fried chicken, lasagna, meat for tacos, etc. and then ask families to contribute the remainder of the meal. POTLUCK: To arrange a “potluck” meal, each family is asked to provide certain foods, usually one meat dish plus one other (salad, vegetable, dessert, etc.) for the size of their family plus two more people. This type of meal would be served buffet style. If you are relying on people to bring food, remind them plenty of times beforehand (try notes, phone calls, e-mails) so they don’t forget.
ONE POT MEAL: Try a pack chili feed. Each family is asked to bring enough chili for their own family and it is all poured into a large pot. Each family brings a salad or dessert and the pack provides crackers, cheese, etc. from the pack budget.
DO IT YOURSELF: The pack can purchase and cook the main dish and ask each family to bring side dishes.
CAKE AND ICE CREAM: Skip the meal and hold a true birthday party with cake and ice cream. Ask each family to bring a certain item, such as cake, ice cream, sundae toppings, whipped cream, etc. Or, ask each family to bring ingredients for homemade ice cream and mix it up in a ice cream freezer. The pack can provide drinks and paper products.
PROGRAM – Your Blue and Gold should follow a program similar to your normal pack meeting program. Parts may need to be shortened to allow for time to eat.
GATHERING PERIOD: Have displays and exhibits. Also have games and something to keep the younger children busy until the meal is served.
OPENING CEREMONY: The American flag should be used in at least one part of the opening. The opening should introduce the theme and the program and set the mood for the banquet. It should remind Cubs and par- ents of the purposes and ideals of Scouting. WELCOME AND INTRODUCTIONS: Welcome guest and Scouts and their families to the banquet. Attention is usually a little better before dinner, an ideal time for introductions of guests and leaders. Introduce last the person giving the invocation (a smooth transition to the next part of the program.)
INVOCATION: A pack leader, a Cub Scout, a parent or a religious leader may give the invocation. Ask the person in advance so there will be no embarrassment.
ENTERTAINMENT: This is a good time for your Cubs to shine. Let each den perform a skit or puppet show, or tell jokes or do some run-ons. Outside entertainment can also be used. Try to keep the entertainment short and sweet and interesting.
RECOGNITION: Spend most of the program time here. Recognition is the most important features of the event because recognition of efforts, large and small, is important to boys as well as leaders. Cub Scouts, adult leaders and parents should be recognized by receiving badges, arrow points, certificates, small gifts and warm applause. Remember those who helped drive, assist leaders or go the extra mile. Awards are important to the Cubs and the Cubs are what the program is all about.
Make the ceremonies extra special, a real night to remember. Use your imagination and adapt ceremonies to suit the theme or situation. 
CLOSING: If the banquet follows the normal course, it will run a little longer than expected. Keep the closing short. At this point in the pro- gram, the “tone” of the meeting should become more serious. Close with something inspirational or patriotic.
Include activities for all ages of children. Don’t make any one segment too long or your audience will get restless.
Don’t start late, children usually eat early. Avoid speeches.

Have fun, start on time, have a program. Recognize guests and honor leaders.
Make award ceremonies memorable for the boys.

Don’t forget applauses, run-ons and songs. Keep things moving-start on time and end on time.
Be sure to finish before bedtime for the younger ones.

February is assigned a theme, just like every month. This year’s “Chinese New Year” theme has tons of possibilities along with lots of great ideas in the February craft section of this book for banquet decorations. But this theme does not have to be the theme of your Blue and Gold. Pick something your boys like, then plan your banquet around that theme. Here are some theme ideas. Use your imagination and resources to think of more!

I Have Decided to Start a New Pack - Now to Figure out How to Start a Pack

My kids love Cub Scouts, and I have decided to start a Pack that can include my children.  I have Lions and Tigers and girls in my family, which the local chartered organization doesn’t choose to include in their packs. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been chartering Wolves, Bears, and Webelos for more than a hundred years; but they are not chartering after 2019 and so there is a very well served population that’s about to be a very large underserved area.

As I tried to find a pack for my kids, we tried a pack about 15 minutes north of our home, and then switched to a pack that is 30 minutes to the south. It’s a pretty good fit for my kids, who are not eligible for any of the packs in my home town. (The bonus about this Pack is that I have many good friends on staff that I met through Akela's Council, and they truly understand how to run a good pack and make it fun for the Cub Scouts.)

For months, now, I’ve been saying that I’m going to help to establish a new pack in Orem, Utah. So far, I’ve been to a few meetings, and I’ve talked to some friends.

My roundtable buddies have agreed that we’re in. I’ve been talking to friends, and there are a couple people in my ward (area) that are ready to help and who want their sons to continue. A couple people in my neighborhood have said they are in although they have no children of Scouting age; but they love scouts and are eager to continue serving.

The Cub Scout year is recommended to begin as kids end school and begin summer break, and I want to be well established by June to take advantage of the fantastic summer opportunities.

I have been learning about community units (that's the terminology in our council for any pack not chartered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Community packs that are chartered by any other organization can include girls, and younger kids in lions and tigers). One of the advantages of registering my children in a community pack is that I can learn. The pack leaders I am with now, know that I intend to leave them eventually, and they share wisdom all the time. They want me to succeed and are generous.

At roundtable I am still fully engaged in learning, and just volunteered to teach a breakout session. This gets me in to the roundtable planning meetings, and I am networking with other great Scouters.

I have been to Akela’s Council, and my husband is going this summer to get that level of training as well, since he is willing to be a leader in our pack.  He has been wood badge trained and has held Cub Scout positions; but he is sure that he will be better for the pack after Akela’s Council. I agree completely.  ** Akela’s Council is ALL ABOUT the Cub Scout program. If you are interested in knowing how to run a quality program that delivers the promise of fun, adventure and character development for 5-11 year-old Scouts, Akela’s Council can launch you in the right direction by immersing you in the purposes, methods and excitement of Cub Scouting.  In 2019, Akela’s Council will run June 19-22 and will fill in any gaps in your Cub Scout toolkit.  CLICK HERE

I will go to University of Scouting. I am part of several Facebook groups dedicated to scouting and Cub Scouting. I have gone to a couple meetings about the future of Scouting in Utah. I have been gathering information.

In August, somebody at a meeting mentioned the William D Boyce scouting award for starting a new unit, and they said there was a document online with step by step instructions for starting a new unit.

Here are links to three documents that I found, not sure which one they actually meant.

According to these guides, successful new units are organized in these steps:

  • Identify the prospect.
  • Approach the prospect.
  • Make the sales call.
  • The organization adopts the program.
  • The organizing committee meets.
  • Help the organizing committee select and recruit unit leaders.
  • Help train the leaders.
  • Help the unit plan and organize programs.
  • Recruit youth members and provide parent orientation.
  • Complete the paperwork. Attend the first meeting. Present the charter.

They say that you can’t skip steps and expect a long-lasting pack.
I honestly don’t know exactly what these steps mean; but I will learn. I intend to follow these steps and establish a Cub Scout pack in Orem, Utah.

I will share my efforts and experiences right here.

Leave Nothing but Footprints - Cub Scout Themes - PowWow Books - Pack Meeting Plans ~ Cubservation ~ Hiking Ideas

Leave Nothing but Footprints was the official Cub Scout theme in May 2009.  This is from the 2008-09 Utah National Parks Council PowWow book.  This is a great theme, and many of the ideas that were used back then can still be used today.  This would work well with the theme Cubservation.
