Opening Monologue

Last week, I was watching a show on TV about invading space aliens - it was pretty creepy. Then, the
doorbell rang so I went to answer it. Standing there was a 6 foot tall mosquito! He grabbed me by the
neck, threw me across the room, and then left.
The next night, I was playing a video game and the doorbell rang. I answered it and that same six-foot
mosquito was there. He punched me in the stomach and then thumped me on the head and left.
The third night, the doorbell rang. I slowly opened the door and that mosquito pushed the door open, hit
me in both eyes, kicked me in the shin, and body slammed me to the ground then left.
The next day, I went to see my doctor and explained everything that had happened. I asked him what I
should do.
The doctor replied, "Not much you can do. There's just a nasty bug going around."

      Invisible Bench All Wolf Scouts-Luke L is Scout #8

      Paul walks onstage and squats down as if he is sitting on a bench that is invisible.
              Shea walks up to Paul.
      Shea: Whatcha doin'?
      Paul: Just sitting on this invisible bench.
      Shea: Can I join you?
      Paul: Sure.
             Shea sits down next to #1.
      Jim, Noah, Trevor, Luke W repeats the dialog.
          Each scout comes on and repeats, making a long line of scouts sitting on the bench.

      Last scout walks up to line of scouts.
      Luke L : What are you guys doing?
      all Scouts: Just sitting here on this invisible bench.
      Luke L : No you aren't. I moved the bench over there. (points away from the group)

      All the sitting scouts fall down.

  Big and Strong Like You Skit BRUCE & LUKE
  Arnold Schwarznegger (Hero) is standing center stage, hands on hips, looking like he is important
  and in charge.

  Luke: Mr. Schwarznegger, how can I become as big and strong as you?

  Bruce: Hmmm, let me see. OK, I will share a secret with you. Go home and rub oil on your head
  every day for one week.

  Luke: Wow, Thank you! (exits)

  Luke W: (enters crouching down to be short) Arnold, Arnold, it didn't work! Now I'm/we’re even
  shorter than I (we) was (were)!

  Bruce: Hmmm, that's strange. Well, go home and rub oil on your head every day for 2 weeks.

  Luke W: Well, OK (exits)

  Luke W: (enters crouching as low as he/they can) Arnold, Arnold, look at me! I'm shorter than ever!

  Bruce: I don't understand. Did you do what I said?

  Luke W: Yes!

  Bruce: What kind of oil did you rub on your head?

  Luke W: Crisco

  Bruce: Crisco!?! That's not oil! That's SHORTENING!!!

Jessica: OK, can you tell me where you are?

John: 'Where am I? I'm at Montgomery and Worchestshire street.'

Jessica: Could you spell that, please?

John: 'You want me to spell it!?... Uh, M-o-t-n... Uh, M-o-t-g,' (confused)

Hair Restorer Arlen, Noah and Luke W
Rabbit is hopping around center stage. (Lucas W)
Noah enters stage as if driving a car and runs into rabbit (Luck W).
Noah gets out of car and checks rabbit and sees that he is definitely dead.
Arlen drives up and stops.

Arlen: What's the matter?

Noah: I hit this poor rabbit and killed it.

Arlen: Hey, that's no problem. I have just what you need right here - my wife left it in the car. Try it.
(hand spray can to other scout. Scout shakes it and sprays a little on the rabbit. Rabbit twitches, gets up,
and hops away. As he is hopping, he turns and waves at each hop.)

Noah: Wow, that's great! What is this stuff?
(reads can.)

Arlen: Hair Restorer - restores dead, lifeless hair and gives it a permanent wave

Got any Duck Food? JERRY & SHEA

General Custer (Robb) and aide (Jerry) are discussing how poorly the battle is progressing are
interrupted in succession by three messengers.

Then from the left (Trevor) "General, we've been overrun on the west flank."
Finally by the scout wrapped in tissue (Jim) comes staggering on stage, "General, we've been
wiped out in the rear!"

George Washington and the Cherry Tree Bruce, Luke W and all Wolves
Scene: 3 scouts sitting around a campfire with one scout acting as the adult leader.

Bruce: We need to reflect on our day at camp. For the most part, I think it was a great day. What do you
Scouts: yeah! great! really good!
Bruce: But, there was one instance that we need to take care of. I'm sure you know what it was. I only
want to ask once - who tipped over that outhouse over there?
Scouts: Not me! I didn't! It wasn't me! Don't look at me!

Bruce: OK, let me tell you a little story about our first president, George Washington. George's dad had a
cherry tree that produced lots of cherries every year. One day, when George's dad came home, his cherry
tree had been chopped down.
Scouts: Huh! Hmmm! Uhuh!

Bruce: Yep, and when George's dad asked him 'Son, did you chop down my tree?', George, being honest
and brave, replied 'Yes sir, I did it.' Well, George's dad said 'Since you told me the truth, we'll pick all the
cherries and make a big cherry pie for you.'
Scouts: Wow! Really! Huh!

Bruce: Now, one last time - Who tipped over the outhouse?

Trevor: Not me!

Noah: I didn't!

Luke W: (sheepishly replies) It was me.

Bruce: (mad and grabs the scout by the arm to take him away.) Come on, then! You're going home!

Luke W: But George Washington got a cherry pie for telling the truth!

Bruce: George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree when George Washington cut it down!

Recipe for Cub Scouting

LEADER: A lot went into our potluck dinner this evening. There was a ton of great food that took hours
to make. That food didn’t just happen by itself, it took a lot of ingredients and some tender but tough care
to put it all together. To cook a good meal you usually start with a good recipe.

We have a recipe for Cub Scouting as well. (place a large container on the table or floor)
Every ingredient is important. If we don’t include every ingredient in our Scouting meal, the results
would not be tasty.

The ingredients of a great Cub Scouting program are:

Luke W: Boys-and lots of them. (snake or slingshot)

Noah M: A bucketful of games, sports and academics (baseball glove and notebook)

Trevor S: Some crafts where we learn to use tools and make useful things. (tools, hammer)

Luke L: A bit of seriousness. We learn how to do our duty to God and our country. (American flag)

Paul C: A cupful of trips and hikes. We explore the world around us. (hiking boot)

Jarrod G: Two barrels of good leaders. We can’t have Scouting without these volunteers. (leader

Jim: Advancement. We always need goals to know where we are going. (a Scout badge or beads)

Shea: And a family unit for each boy. (parents walk up and holds Shea’s hand)

LEADER: Family…This is the most important ingredient after the first one. Without the Scout’s family,
a Pack can’t give you the best of Scouting.

Mix all these ingredients together, and you are sure to have a great time in Scouting. Cub Scouting is a
family activity and we want the whole family unit walking step-by-step with their Cub Scout in all

Parents please stand up and help me recite the Parent’s Pledge: (Cub Scout Sign)

                                  I will do my best to support my boy,
                By guiding him to complete the achievements to the best of his ability.
                     I will sign the appropriate book, when he has done his best.
                                        I will assist his den leader.
                  I will attend and take part in Pack meetings with other families.
                                  This record will help me guide him.

Lessons Learned
     Program moved along nicely. Not too much talking by adults so the boys didn't get bored.

     Trumpet was a nice touch (this comment was not posted by me, honest)

     Do a sound check before the meeting

     Provide better instructions on how to do the uniform inspections. Some of this will progress as we
      do inspections at the Den level.

     Formal flag ceremony is a bit beyond the capabilities of the Wolves without a ton of practice.
      Stick to the short ceremony.

     Invite more members from the Parish staff and Chartered Organization to Pack activities

     The room seemed a bit dark (foyer of church)

     Food (potluck) was great!

     Skits and Songs were wonderful.

     Possibly arrange the chairs in a U-shape (Theater in the Round) with parents sitting behind the
      Scouts to reduce background chatter. The performances could be in the ring or U.

     The older Scouts already knew a number of the skits so keep the material fresh each year.
