If you are attending the American Royal BBQ this year and have an active Cub Scout, Webelos, or Boy Scout, please contact me. I have a special opportunity for Scouts. They should be associated with a participating BBQ team: son, grandson, nephew, etc.

Earlier this year I presented the idea of having a color guard present the flags for the awards ceremony. The color guard would be comprised of scouts from the participating BBQ teams. There are a lot of them, so we should have a full group of kids. We should have the full spectrum from Tiger Cubs to Eagle Scouts.

I'm pretty sure I won't be able to keep it together watching those boys post the colors at awards. I'm hoping it becomes a new tradition.

I'm also working on convincing them to let me sing the National Anthem. Most don't know that I want to college on a vocal music scholarship and have sang the Star Spangled Banner at least a hundred times at events. I need to get an audition CD submitted.

Are you putting the scouts in charge of the charcoal lighter fluid? :shock:

A true Scout should be able to start a fire with one match and without accelerants. :thumb:

Great idea. I think the awards ceremony could use a bit of patriotism. After all what is more American than BBQ?

I better talk to the Royal about how many kids they want parading up to the stage for this. Stay tuned. Adding Girl Scouts would, theoretically, double the numbers.

Great effort Todd, I will never forget my opportunity and participation in the National Jamboree back in the day, I was the JASM ; this could be very memorable as well for those who can attend.

Yeah, scouts all learn how to do that, but you put adolescent boys in charge of a bottle of Gulflite, and watch what happens. :laugh:

So, what you are saying is that you are some kind of Pavarotti of Pork?

VERY cool. Thanks for putting this together Todd.

All 3 of my sons are active Scouts, 1 Bear, 1 Webelo and 1 Boy Scout.
Don't know if we'll be there or not, but still, very cool.


As an active Cubmaster for the last 6 years I appreciate what you're trying to do. Scouting is where it's at! Awareness is a great thing at large events like the Royal!

Cool. I know of one local brethren member that has an Eagle Scout for a son.

We should have at least four Eagle Scouts that I know of. Plan is to have a different Eagle carry the US flag and another at the podium leading the posting of the colors each day for the invitational and the open contests. We'll also post a State of Missouri flag.

The American Royal BBQ folks will be sending an email out next week about this. If you have a Boy Scout, Cub Scout, or Girl Scout on your team and you are one of the record 545 teams competing at the Royal this year, send me an email. I want to know your Scout's name, rank, unit number, team name, and adult team member's name.
