AKELA: Who comes here?
A.C.M. Boys, hunting the fun of Cub Scouting.
AKELA: But who do you seek?
A.C.M. Akela, the Great Spirit of Cub Scouting.
AKELA: Are these boys wise in the ways of the Bobcat?
A.C.M. They are, Akela.
AKELA: Show me. (A.C.M. asks the boys as a group for the Cub Scout Promise & the Law of the Pack).
AKELA: I can now call you Cub Scouts because you have completed the requirements necessary for your participation in the great game we call Cub Scouting.
Tonight you have repeated before me the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. You have assumed a very important responsibility. You have agreed to "Do Your Best" and to "Do Your Duty to God and Your Country," to "Help other People, and "To Obey the Law of the Pack." These are things which are not always easy, but I think you will enjoy them. All that we ask is that you do your best - no one can do more.
