Circus Flag Ceremony Opening
The Pack Meeting is set up and run like a
world class circus. The Cubmaster is attired as Ringmaster, all Cub Scouts
are in costumes
Ringmaster: Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and
girls, welcome to our show "Under the Big Top!" Let's greet our circus
performers as they make their grand entry by standing and singing the Star
Play snappy recording of the National Anthem
as flags and color guard lead the parade. All Cub Scouts are in their
den-made costumes as clowns, side show members, aerial artists, trained and
wild animals. Use brilliant colors, fantastic costumes and masks with a lot
of imagination. Have trilling circus music, capricious clowns (den leaders)
fill in slack time between the den circus acts of your show.
The circus is our theme for this month; we
think it is a dilly;
Both circuses and little boys can sometimes be quite silly.
Den leaders find it a natural to do this
kind of show.
They run a three-ring circus every single week, you know.
At a circus there is shouting, roaring,
stamping, whistles tooting;
Tumbling, pushing, falling, wrestling, and a rolling and a-rooting.
At den meetings things keep moving, constant
motion, constant noise.
There are lots of things in common between circuses and boys.
We’ve put all the dens together; it’s not
Ringling Brothers, you know.
But we think you will enjoy it, so let’s get on with the show.
