Steve:
This may sound a bit extreme, but I don't like the idea of the "weekly dues"
and in this budget, allow for each family to pay ONE SET FEE for the entire
year:

        National registration:   7.00
        Boy's Life               9.00 (even if there are more than one Scout
                  in family (I'll explain)
        Crafts and things        6.50
        Awards                  13.00 (this includes camp/council/district
                  activities patches, etc.)
        Activities               7.80 (not including district/council ones)
        "oops fund"              3.90 (to cover "things that you have no
                 control over)
       SME contribution         19.50 (I know that many families don't give...
                 this way, you can assure everyone of the Pack's support
                 to Scouting!_
                                _______
                                $66.70 (This includes EVERYTHING for the year)

Yeah, it is extreme..but it give you a greater amount of flexibility:

ONE, each pack has at least 4 families that have multiple Boys' Life
registrations...since only one BL is needed, the pack can use the other
$9.00 to place in the "oops" fund subaccount.

TWO, the awards include all awards (which come pretty close if a Cub earned
a rank (2.00), two arrowpoints (.75 each or 1.50), four beads (3.00), and
takes part in at least one district/council event (4.00 to 5.00). This can
also handle the certificates for each award as well.

THREE, the activities one provide for one activity a month at .50 per Cub.
this is where the dues would come in to play.

FOUR, I have found out the "hard way" that Things happen without my control.
Examples are going back to the Council office to pick up spare awards,
the Quality Unit awards (which must be paid for), blown tires, no food at
 a given WEBELOS outing when there was supposed to be, and other "oops" things
that occur. $3.90 per Cub or $156.00 in a Pack of 40 should answer most
"oops" (and still have plenty left over for the following year.)

FIVE, I did not even mention insurance, and it was not as a oversight. The
SME contribution by family will pay for Cub insurance through one of the
private agencies, a $12.00 contribution to SME ($1.00 per month per family)
and the remainder to go to the costs of leader's awards...like the training award.  
In a pack of 40, the SME contribution would make any Council happy...$480.00.
