Blue & Gold Banquet
Well, This was our FIRST Blue & Gold Banquet. For those who don't know, this is the annual awards banquet in Cub Scouts. The banquet was held on Feb 21, 2008 at the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department (a beautiful and spacious facility). The food was catered and delicious. Following dinner, each of the dens (year groups) presented the boys' achievement badges and beltloops. Each den then did a skit for the parents. Both the Tigers (Connor's Den) and the Webelos (Colin's Den) did baseball skits that were quite entertaining.
Our boys were so excited and proud of their accomplishments. They each received MANY badges/beltloops--enough so that David and I had the opportunity to teach about humility and being gracious in our victories! :)
Colin's Awards- The Webelos badge, Aquanaut, Athlete, Family Member, Handyman, and Readyman badges, also he earned beltloops for: Art, Astronomy, Bicycling, Citizenship, Communicating, Ice Skating, Math, Music, and Flag Football.
Connor's Awards- 3 Tiger Tracks, The Tiger Badge, and Beltloops for: Bicycling, Citizenship, Ice Skating, Math, & Flag Football.
