    • BTW IOWLS = Introduction to On the Water Leadership Skills.   It is a class for Skippers and Mates to learn how to teach the Ordinary requirements.  It is a weekend course along the lines of IOLS for Troop leaders.
    • I have lesson plans and materials for all the ordinary requirements that are talk about during IOWLS course.  I will share it with you.  Any else need it, send me a mesage. It has Piloting and Navigation very well covered for exactly this purpose.    
    • Not at all. I prefer Cole Canoe Base.  Only reason we go to D-Bar-A is because Cub families refuse to travel more than 90 minutes.
    • Yep. Scouts being honest with themselves is the goal. The hard part for adults is as qwazse said, "Encourage them to grade themselves honestly, and see how they develop over time. Each adult has their own style of encouraging, but the objective is for the scout, not the adult, to make conscious effort to develop habits of good decisions. I found the uniform is a very powerful method for developing good habits of character, if the adults could just get past their own hangups.  By the way, doesn't the handbook still give instructions for wearing the uniform?

    • Well, I agree in the sense that wearing a uniform shouldn't be considered "pass/fail" and in general I'd never seriously criticize anyone for failing to wear a complete uniform.  But when it comes to "being in full uniform" I don't think you can consider that to be anything less than 100% (except perhaps minus the socks if someone is wearing pants).  However, the only times I've ever been absolutely insistent about being in "full uniform" was for anyone going to serve as "Governor's Honor Guard" at Mackinac Island (Michigan) or something similarly formal and public where we are representing the organization.
