BOBCAT - is the first rank earned by all incoming boys into the Cub
Scout/Webelos program. It can (and should) be earned at any time of the
year. We promote nationally year round recruiting which, naturally, results
in year round Bobcat ceremonies if the pack is following the program and
recruits all year long.
Just as in the Troop, we may NOT hold a rank back from a boy, once he has
earned it. It is simplier in the pack, since it meets once a month (versus
the once a quarter Court of Honor) which allows us to publically present the
actual rank. In the troop, the boy should be presented his new rank at the
very next troop meeting, with public recognition at the next Court of Honor.
