Marie wrote that she felt strongly that the Arrow of LIght and Crossover
ceremony should be two distinctive ceremonies. I wonder how many packs
really do this.
It is a goal in my pack that every boy earn his Arrow of Light. Last year
a boy came close to missing out (divorce happening at the time), but other
people pitched in to make sure he could make it to the troop events.
We award our Arrow of Light at the Blue and Gold. It gets the younger boys
really psyched up about it!
Our boys crossover into scouts in early march (for the reasons so many have
stated..getting them prepared for camp, ect).
We usually do our Arrow of Light and have the Scoutmaster at our B&G.
I was not able to make the District Crossover last year, but heard from
my Webelos leader that it was terrible, and she was glad that we recognized
the boys at B&G.
This year *MY* patrol is one of the two second year. I have already told
the other leader about the arrow I have made and mounted, but I was planning
on having an additional Crossover into Boy Scouts at the same meeting.
I could award both patrols their Arrow of Light in January, but the Blue and
Gold is the most attended and the boys (and parents) are looking forward
to all the attention.
I will have a Crossover ceremony prepared in conjunction with the
How does everyone do this?
