Blue and Gold 2013

Posted: April 15, 2013 in Birthdays, Cub Scouts

February 5, 2013: Our Cub Scout Pack celebrated Blue and Gold. What is Blue & Gold, and why do we have it you ask? The Boy Scouts of America was organized in February 1910, and the Cub Scouts were organized 20 years later, in 1930. Lord Baden Powell, the founder of BSA, was born on February 22, 1857. What better way is there to celebrate than have a party? Cub Scout packs everywhere celebrate by holding a Blue & Gold Banquet. In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is one of the highlights of the year. It brings pack families together for a dinner and evening of fun.

We had a lovely dinner catered by Qdoba and the decoration theme was “pirate” for the event. The boys got to make pirate boat hats before the meeting and even got to do an activity page. We even ran a raingutter regatta race during the evening. Each boy built a Raingutter Regatta Trimaran Boat Kit during the evening and they got to race their boats. They had an absolute blast racing! Since I am the Committee Chair for our Pack, I made awards to hand out to each of our Pack leaders without them knowing about them. Each award was very clever and everyone seemed to like them. We had a great Pack meeting and had a great time at the birthday party! Happy Birthday BSA!

Ready for the fun to begin!
