I think that BOTH are SUPER ideas, and I've already sent a copy of
this posting to someone with the national Cub Scout Committee.
Instead of several strands of shoulder loops, a special neckerchief in
the Cub Scout colors of Blue and Gold with a chieftain's headgear in
the lower center and the words "Den Chief", "BSA" would go a LONG way
in recognizing and emphasizing the important role between Cub Scouting
and Boy Scouting (yes, there could also be one made with the same
lettering over and under the WEBELOS emblem for the WEBELOS Den
As far as the guide or helper for Tiger Cubs, how about Mogli (I know,
I spelled it wrong), the little boy from Kipling's _Jungle_Book_ ? A
Mogli could be the Cub Scout or adult that helps the Tiger Cubs learn the
Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, the sign, handshake and the motto
*kinda like what the Den Chief does*
Maybe that's what we can call the "Tiger Cub Organizer", or the title
we give to the "leading team", the parent and child that conducts the
program for a given month in a Tiger Cub group.
Or maybe we can call our Tiger Cub groups "Moglies". *hehehehee*
Gang, I've got some great news for all of you, but I'll wait until
morning, when after I can get some rest and really reflect on what it
is I'm talking about... cu all then!
