PERSONNEL: Cubmaster, and any other pack committee member
EQUIPMENT: 2 Viking hunter costumes
SETTING: The two leaders walk through the pack while talking.
CUBMASTER: I'm going on a (bear or wolf) hunt.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: For a big (bear or wolf)?
CUBMASTER: No, not in size, but big in ideals.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Can I go along?
CUBMASTER: Yes, but I am looking for a Cub, and you may have to help me with his parents.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: OK, but are they dangerous?
CUBMASTER: No, but they are smart.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Why is that?
CUBMASTER: Well, you see, they have taught the Cub many things.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Oh, you mean they are wise.
CUBMASTER: Yes. (Quietly) I think I see him. Yes, that's him. I'll get the Cub, you get his parents.
(They escort the boys and parents forward.)
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Wait a minute. These aren't wild animals!
CUBMASTER: I never said I was going after wild animals. This is (name), and he has completed twelve very exciting achievements.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Congratulations, (name). I see you have done a fine job.
CUBMASTER: Yes, he has done a fine job indeed, but he had help at home from his family. Before we give out this badge, I would like to say thanks to his family for helping him grow.
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Are these his parents?
COMMITTEE MEMBER: Fellow parents, would you present your son with his (wolf or bear) badge.
CUBMASTER: You are all indeed like a (wolf or bear). You have shown yourself to be keen of eye and spirit. Go forth and continue to grow.
