2nd Leduc Cubs and Venturers held our first annual Court of Honor on Friday April 24 at the Lions Club campground. Three of our Cubs – Dean Kopfensteiner , Isaac Pollard and Elijah Pollard were honored for earning their 6 stars and all three received plaques for their job well done. The Venturers – Brandon Saitz Jordan Saitz, Wyatt Carr and Savannah Roberts were honored with handmade antler awards made by Scouter Tom for a successful survivor man challenge and Wyatt Car was awarded with his next level within the BSA movement, Wyatt is now a life scouter.
Life is second-highest rank attainable and ranks above Star Scout and below Eagle. Life is awarded when the Scout serves actively in the troop, team or crew, serves in a position of responsibility for six months, and performs six hours of community service. Another thing a Scout must do in order to achieve Life is earn an additional five merit badges (three of which are required for the rank of Eagle), to make a minimum total of eleven merit badges (including the six previously required for Star). Finally, the Scout must pass a Scoutmaster conference, and board of review. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranks_in_the_Boy_Scouts_of_America)
One last thing that was presented this evening was each of the cub and Venturer youth were presented with campfire ashes that have a pedigree that trails all the way back to the original scouting movement on Brownlee Island.
