Rodeo Opening
Santa Clara Council

Dens are waiting outside the room. The boys are in western costume. Each den carries its flag. The color guard are in uniform.

Cubmaster: Good evening rodeo fans. Welcome to the Cub Scout Rodeo. Like any rodeo, we have thrills and chills, feats of daring, and best of all, we have a grand entrance. (Dens now enter and parade around the arena while recorded western music is played.) That's one of the best parts of the rodeo, with all the riders carrying their own flags.
