While I'm pretty heavliy involved with Boy Scouts, I haven't done too much in the Cub Scout department. When I heard that the theme for this year's Cub Olympics was to be "Wild West", I knew I had to get in on the act. The Mobley brothers have a LOT of cowboy props.
Our district training chairman, Dan Norton, came up with a dozen game ideas. Once those ideas got filtered through Cubmaster Charlie Brown and myself, we had a great event for the boys. We strolled and strummed cowboy songs, spun lariats and cracked the bullwhip to add a little extra atmosphere to the boys' competitions.
The Pony Express was my favorite event. That's a 7&3/4 Stetson on the boy, front brim rolled up "sidekick style". They couldn't see a thing. Here's a link to the whole show.
