What a wonderful question. I posed this to our Pack Committee a few
months ago as we were still trying to get organized the first go round.
At the present we have NO Webelos, but our Bear Den will be starting
Webelos in June. We opted to have our Webelos 1 group continue to wear
the blue shirt and get the book, neckerchief, and slide for
advancement. We opted that the transition from Webelos 1 to Webelos 2
would be the change from the blue shirt to the tan shirt. We felt that
in this manner no boy gets left out when it's "Advancement Time". We
felt that using the choices in uniforming would also give the Webelos 1
boys something to look forward to and the Webelos 2 boys a little
something extra to be proud of to set them apart as the 'oldest'.
Anyways, that's our thoughts. Hope it helps.
