In 1933 “Cub Leaders’ Round Table” suggested Parent/Cub dinners as a way to create bonds through scouting. Soon thereafter, Pack 1 in Michigan started a tradition of pot-lucks where the dads were to bring utensils made of wood; whittled by the cub and his dad.
Shortly after, 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 synonymous with celebrating “the birth of Scouting”
Today the Blue and Gold Banquet is one of the highlights of the program year. It brings together the Pack 793 family for a dinner and evening of fun. The meal is important, but more important is the warm, congenial atmosphere created as families enjoy each others company.
We look forward to seeing you all at our big celebration!
Warm up those shooters so you can knuckle down and play for keeps without histing or hunching! No idea what that last sentence means? That’s OK, it just means we’re getting ready to play marbles! Aquila District Cub Scouts spend one Saturday morning in February playing the game of Ringer and increasing their collection of marbles (as well as learning all that marbles lingo). Bring your favorite shooter if you’ve got one, otherwise we’ll give you one. If you’re a first through fifth grade Scout, this is one event you won’t want to miss(get it?). You can also join Scouts and play by filling out an application at the door.
Scouts will play 7 games of marbles (Ringer) against boys their own age. The tournament uses 5 foot rings instead of the “official” 10 foot rings and the tournament playing surface is thick craft paper taped to the floor. Scouts can bring their own shooter marbles as long as they are not smaller than 1/2″ nor larger than 3/4″ in diameter, and shooter diameter is measured at the tournament. Please read through the tournament rules for more information.
Scouts get a participation certificate and activity segment for attending the tournament, they get to keep all marbles they knock out of the ring, and the top three competitors at each Den level win a trophy and even more marbles. They can also earn the Cub Scout Sports Marbles Belt Loop and Sports Pin with very little extra effort after competing in this event. The pin and belt loop are not included but are available for purchase at the Scout Shop.

Organized in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America, this event is designed to help you earn your engineering badge by visiting a construction site and performing fun hands-on activities that teach basic engineering concepts. Meet an engineer from the SR 99 Tunnel Project to learn what it’s like to work with Bertha, the giant tunneling machine. You’ll find out about different types of engineering jobs and take a walking tour to see viaduct construction up-close. We’ll also teach you how to draw a floor plan, and make model bridges inspired by those found across Washington State. This event will take place at Milepost 31, the SR 99 Tunnel Project’s public information center located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
