This Tiger den meeting plan covers most of the requirements for the Games Tigers Play adventure. This meeting is all about having fun and cooperating. For the final requirement, the Tigers can go to a sporting event. Note that it does not have to be a professional sporting event. There is nothing wrong with completing this requirement by watching a third grade soccer game. #CubScouts #BSA #ScoutMeIn
