There were 14 great entries to the first Scouting News Caption Contest.
The task at hand was to provide a caption for this photo:
After the contest closed yesterday, I worked to narrow down the entries to one winning entry. I’ll be honest, it was a lot harder than I had expected, and I probably won’t hold another caption contest unless I can get someone else to judge it ; )
It came down to Ivan’s “Just a minute ago they let Den leader Bob know that committee was looking for a new Cubmaster.” and Steve’s “This was not what I had in mind when I was asked to run the meeting“.
In the end I only have one Scouting for Adventure Season One Dvd prize to give away so I had to pick one. I thought about flipping a coin or picking a random number, but in the end it came to my love of puns.
So the winner is Steve’s “This was not what I had in mind when I was asked to run the meeting“. Congratulations to Steve and to all the other entrants!
On a side note if anyone knows the individual in the picture or more of the story behind it please contact us. I’d like to do an interview with the Boston Marathon Cub Scout Leader!
