  1. Scoutnut, Looks like bad site, when clicked...oooops this site is not here. Thanks for the help Eagle Foot
  2. Thanks, Basementdweller I will definantly check this out. What I am looking for is publication #33838 from BSA. I feel for sure that there is one out there. If you've got one can you get it to me? Yours in Scouting Eaglefoot
  3. A long time ago just depending on how old you are. I conducted a Camporee program called Webelos Woods, sometime back in the 90's. Does anyone know-have-or leed me to this syllabus? I remember enough to be dangerous...your help would be greatly appreciated. In Scouting eagle foot
  4. Thanks for all of your imput...for some reason I thought I was looking for event ideas...(can't see the forest for the trees?) I am very aware of all that is posted, the leaders guide will cover that. We will provide the phone (individuals) have provided this...in fact the deal is that they are providing several types...smart, blackberry, and flip. All of that is covered just looking for some ways to do all this. For Face book...well this has become a major way of communicating not only with the districts but with the troops...there are a lot of units using face book and districts.

  5. CalicoPenn Where in the world are you coming from?
  6. Shortridge...you are right...I'm sorry I did not mention that Semaphore, morse code, hand signs all will be part...I'm just trying to figure out how to do it.
  7. Normally we say leave your phones at home...why?...is what our camporee staff is now asking ourselves...(we really know)we want to use cell phones as part of the next camporee, to send text, code, you name it for one event, two, maybe they will have to do something at every event...who knows. I am coming to you...yes you on the forum in all of your wisdom and ideas....lets face it the scouts all have them (at least most) we want to make it fun....you know....KISMIF...we're even opening a face book account with clues for the next camporee...get-em looking and thinking... What's your thoughts? I'm looking for event ideas. Eaglefoot
  8. Looking for some new ideas for the fall camporee, that will celabrate Veterans Day and combine Webelos Transition to Boy Scouts....I've headed up some 15 to 20 ....I supose I'm just out....again it's the same partners in crime putting these together. What's out there? Eagle Foot
  9. I understand, when we or I moved to Huntsville, Alabama my wife has stayed back to finish her teaching. She comes in June, well...the first words out of her mouth were..."You're not going to take up Scouts aganin"? My reply was vague...here I am six months later and not in Scouting...the kids are grown, but I still get out of the shower and think...I've got a new idea for a camporee...these guys would just love it! So it really never goes away, and somehow I'm still looking for a way to get back involved. Now here the deal...I've contacted some of the local Scouting troops and local in the District...no responce...no interest...I want to get involved again...but some say why...you don't have any kids in volved anymore. Sowhat...what was Baden's son's name? Let me know> Also let me know if any of you have any ideas about returning back into Scouting once you're kids are finished...I need some ideas.

  10. I am no longer with the Troop...but still am on the active e-mail list. Well because of one thing or another the Troop has gone to using one onf the "Groups" on the e-mail...you have to be approved by the orginator...or admainistrator of the group. It's very private...know one from the outside will get it or can read it unless approved. Kinda of an open forum...like this...really a good way to ask questions...pass on picutres...share information...you should check it out. edited by Eagle Foot
  11. I understand your post, I was a cc who just left the troop for a job transfer. That's been about two months ago, still getting calls. The cc should support the sm, they should work together, it's the sm who presents the program to the scouts, the scouts take the program and use it. They also help make the program, it is their troop, not the sm or cc, we are there to keep it safe. If your cc has not been trained...some training would be required, same goes for the sm. We as adults are not there for our own personal gain, we have, we must be open minded progressive thinkers, what can I do to serve my troop and what can I do to help these boys have a good time and at the same time learn and develope a life long skill. edited by Eagle Foot
  12. Thanks for all of the information. As it seems coming from a good source and I would have to agree; the COR and the CC can remove a adult volunteer from the unit, not from Scouting, just from the unit. The COR and the CC must be in agreement the COR takes pirority over the CC if there is a conflict, then it could (should be) addressed by the unit committee. As stated the person(s) signing the adult application have the authority to remove and not the Scoutmaster. Again this is just removal from the unit not BSA, also the Council can not change the decision after it has been made. BSA is still foggy about getting this written out. This is the worst possible thing that can happen to a unit when you have to cross this bridge. I can't say enough, catch it early, make sure you have a good realationship with your COR, do your best to screen your adults when joing, make sure they know how the chain of command goes within the unit and with the scouts. It's great that everybody wants to help, sometimes it's to much. Edited by Eagle Foot
  13. Who has the authority to remove a volunteer from the unit? If you know...show it from BSA, or lead me there...the only thing I can find is from BSA publication Selecting District People, there is a section in the back about removal. It is listed as a "rule of thumb" "The person or group with the authority to appoint a volunteer has the authority to remove and replace that volunteer" It seems to me that the Charter Rep vs institutional head has the authority or maybe both? I'm not real clear in the understanding of who it would be... the Troop Committee or the Charter Rep. Our District Chair says only the Institional head...hope his is right! Our DE...another story...he will get back to ya..ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Edited by: Eagle Foot
  14. When I was young and everybody was doing their own thing I listened to a famous man say: Ask not what your country can do for you Ask what you can do for your country Been that way ever since Edited by: Eagle Foot
  15. Our troop has been advised that one of our ASM's has not compleated "Youth Protection" we were advised that this is now mandatory and that he is NOT to attend any troop meetings, camping trips, or activities untill he compleates this. What's the scoop I do know that it is required if you file a tour permit (at least one) and that all must have it if it is a national event, i.e. Jamboree etc. I really think they are picking on him (district chair)...however he does have it they just diden't look deep enough into the records.
