For this relay race, divide the boys up into teams. You can have
however many teams you want, but 2 to 4 is probably best. Everyone
starts at certain point, and each team is lined up in their own line. At
the go signal, the first person runs to the first station area, makes the
Cub Scout sign and repeats the Cub Scout Promise. You may want to
have a copy of the promise posted there for those who do not know it.
I, (say your name), promise
to do my best
To do my duty to GOD
And my Country
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack
Then he runs to the next station, gets a licorice rope off the table and ties a square knot. (Show
all the boys how to tie square knots before the race begins.) He keeps his licorice rope with him
to eat later. Then he runs to the last station where an American Flag is posted. He stops, salutes
the flag, and repeats the Pledge of Allegiance. Then, he turns around and runs back to his team.
When he gets there, he must use the Cub Scout handshake with the next boy in line before that
boy can start his turn. The first team (make sure the teams are equal in size or have a boy go
twice) to have all the boys finish is the winning team.
