Merlin Time Travel To Camelot

My Lords and Ladies.

To you, who over the countless years hold aloft the honor and spirit of Scouting, I bring greetings. I am Merlin, the magician. Tonight I am commissioned by my liege and Lord, King Arthur, to take you back through the countless years to the court of Camelot. All you need to do to make the journey safely is to close your eyes when I tell you, and keep your eyes closed until you hear the sound of the trumpets. It is most important that you do exactly as I say. For if you open your eyes to soon, you will be lost somewhere between now and then and it will not be possible to find you. Only the strong should attempt this journey and those who are unable to go with us should leave the room at this time. We are now ready.

First, I must light the magic fires. I light the Fire of Honor (lights candle). I light the Fire of Duty (lights candle). I light the Fire of Courage (lights candle ).

Now, listen carefully, and I beg of you, for your own safety and well being, do exactly as I command you.


Oh, magic fires burning bright,

Take us swiftly beyond this night,

Let us through the centuries fly

Till, yea, a thousand years go by.

Now close your eyes till trumpets sound,

For only then is Camelot found...

Now close your eyes, till trumpets sound

(softly and fading)

For only then is Camelot found....

Now close your eyes...

At this point Grand Entry of Knights (Cubs) in full costume can begin.
