Recruiter Strip

I thought it would be appropriate for September to remind you about an incentive award for boys to get their friend to join Scouting - CD

Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts may be awarded, and wear, below the right pocket on their uniforms, the Recruiter Strip shown above

There are NO formal requirements for these strips.  Each Unit establishes the procedure for awarding the strip.  Usually, a Recruiter Strip is awarded to a Cub Scout or Boy Scout the first time he is successful in getting a friend, relative, classmate, or other acquaintance to join his unit.

Typically, only ONE strip is awarded to a boy while he is a Cub Scout, and another may be awarded while he is a Boy Scout.  But there is no official limit.

From time to time there are special Recruiter Patches issued.  I have seen Football Helmets, Garfield, and others. 

Just remember A boy has to be having fun in Cub Scouting before he will ask his friend to join.
