Look in the Cub Scout Leader Book, Stanley....there's an illustration of the
CORDS worn by the Denner, Assistant Denner, as well as Den Chiefs for both
Cub Scout Dens and WEBELOS Dens in Chapter 2.
The Denner wears two gold (yellow) braided strands on his left shoulder. If
he's wearing the tan Boy Scout uniform, the tab of the Cord goes on the
epulet but under the blue shoulder loop.
If he's wearing the traditional blue Cub Scout uniform, the tab of the Cord
goes on the shoulder top as if he's wearing a epulet. The tab pins to the
Assistant Denners wear one gold (yellow) braided strands on his left
shoulder in a similar manner as the Denner.
The BSA was *supposed to* come out with a Denner and Assistant Denner patch
this fall, but it has been held up with discussion on other aspects of Cub
Scouting uniforming. I expect that we'll finally see an actual Denner and
Assistant Denner patch come out over the spring or summer in time for the
new program year (if not sooner). This patch was asked for by Cub Scouters
because many Cub Scouters complained in an similar vein as the WEBELOS Badge
colors....that the cords hang in bushes and trees and can cause garment
damage to the uniform as well as possibly put some Cub Scouts in danger due
to the fact that the cord is strong and hangs over the shoulder and arm.
Den Chiefs already have a patch to go along with the cords that they wear
either as a present Den Chief or as a former Den Chief (the red, white and
blue Den Chief Service Award cord).
Hey Cub Scouters...are you *presenting those cords and certificates* to your
former Den Chiefs???
Hope this helps you, Stanley...thanks for asking...it's a great question!
