Bobcat Induction With Achievement Board

EQUIPMENT: 1" X 6" board, 2 nails, 2 strings 18" long, 2 metal washers.

ARRANGEMENT: Drive a finishing nail into each end of the board, slightly off center, with 1/4" left protruding. Print ACHIEVEMENT on one side of board and PARENT COOPERATION on the other. Tie a washer to one end of each of the string.

Ask the bobcat candidate to take one string and the washer and lift the board from the floor by hooking the washer over the nail. It will slip off.

Ask the Bobcat's parents try the same thing with the same string.

When they have tried and failed, pull the second string from your pocket and give it to the boy. Tell him and his parents to put a washer on each nail and together pull the board up. Together, they should succeed. The board should slip so the words can be seen.

Explain that achievements in Cub Scouting will always depend on the Cub Scout and his parents working together, just as they have done tonight.
