<< My question to you is: Are the two ceremonies supposed to be separate?
Cub Master made my son wait (Since Feb) to get his Arrow of Light Award so he
could walk the Bridge at the same time. He turns 11 in May. What is the
way to handle the two ceremonies?
Thanks for all help. >>
The Arrow of Light is advancement, and as such should be presented at the
first opportunity. As the pinnacle of Cub advancement, I think it should be
done with all possible pomp & ceremony. Make that boy feel special! However,
once your son finished the requirements for AoL, he had the rank, whether
there was a ceremony or not.
Cross-over is a ceremony denoting a Cub becoming a Boy Scout. It should be
seperate. Of course, your son could become a Boy Scout without a cross-over
as well - he was eligible the minute he finished his AoL.
