The Blue & Gold Banquet
THE BLUE AND GOLD BANQUET
SCOUTING'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION - CUB SCOUT STYLE!

The Virtual Cub Leader's Handbook
A 66-YEAR OLD TRADITION
TO CELEBRATE 89 YEARS OF SCOUTING

In 1933 "Cub Leaders' Round Table" suggested Parent / Cub dinners. Soon thereafter, Pack 1 of Michigan City started a tradition of pot-lucks where the dads were to bring utensils made of wood; whittled by the Cub with his dad. In the 1930s father / son 'bean dinners' and 'Cub family dinners' began to become commonplace. Finally, in 1943 the name "Blue and Gold Banquet" first appeared in BSA literature, and became synonomous with "celebrating the birthday of Scouting."

Today, the Blue and Gold banquet is one of the highlights of the program year. It brings together your Pack's families for a dinner and an evening of fun. The meal is important, but even more important is the warm, congenial atmosphere created as families enjoy each other's company.
