Here's something that I've pulled out from the old file cabinet.
I'm posting it both to the list as well as to you so that someone else
that need something like this can use it as well.
SECOND CLASS CEREMONY
Materials needed: Second Class Patch and Card (per Second Class Scout)
Second Class Poster (available from Council Office)
Participants: Second Class Scouts to be honored
Senior Patrol Leader
One other Scout to hold Poster and Flashlight
(at this part of the Court of Honor, the lights are dimmed and the Scout
holding the Second Class Scout poster and flashlight takes his place to the
right of the Senior Patrol Leader.)
Scoutmaster: "At this time, I will turn this part of the Court
over to ___________________________, Senior Patrol
Leader, for an advancement presentation."
Senior Patrol Leader: "Will the following Scout(s) come forward, face
the audience, and form a line to the right of the
Scoutmaster". (Calls names of Scouts).
"These are Scouts that have been with us for at least
three months. They have learned much about our Troop
and about Scouting. They have learned how to take
care of themselves and others, have learned how to use
a map and compass to find their way, and most of all
have seen firsthand how much fun it is to be a Scout."
(at this time, Scout holding Second Class Poster shines flashlight on poster to
illuminate the poster)
"It gives me great honor to officially recognize these
Scouts as Second Class Boy Scouts. May the scroll of
your new rank remind you of the fun and enjoyment that
you have had so far in your Scouting experience. May
it also spur you onward to complete the requirements
and to become First Class Boy Scouts."
(Scoutmaster presents rank patch to each Scout, shaking hands with each
using the Scout handshake. The Senior Patrol Leader follows behind,
Second Class Rank card to each Scout.)
"Congratulations to each one of you, Scouts. Mr.(Ms.)
Scoutmaster, I now return the Court to you."

Pine Council, BSA)
Not an imposition at all...that's part of the reason why we are all around here!
Hope this helps out...let us know how the Rally Night goes!
