This thread from a few weeks ago generated quite a bit of discussion.
Several people asked to see something in writing from the BSA. Well, I
wrote to National and received a reply which gives reasons why the
ceremony should be discouraged.
In summary, the official BSA position is that the ceremony, during which
the new Bobcat in turned upside down while his pin placed is on his
uniform, has no place in Cub Scouting and should not be used.
If you would like a copy of the letter I received, send me a business
size (#10), stamped, self-addressed envelope and I'll forward a copy of
