Finally, someone that thinks like me. Our Cub Scout pack always did the cross
over in late April or may. I believe they have plenty of time to get to know the
Scouts in the Troop. Their parents are advised that Camp deposits are due in
March and there is no problem. This year someone decided to do the cross over at
the Feb. Blue and Gold. These boys miss the Klondike and the Pack is short the
older boys which always took part in the PAck Meeting. Lets not rush the Cubs.
Boy Scouts are supposed to be 6th graders which they nearly are in May or April,
but not close in Feb.
