  1. I had a scout who was in ranger training tell me he was able to catch a few "Z's" during his first aid classes because of what we taught him in his Scouting career. He aced the test! I retired after 44 years as Scoutmaster. Dale
  2. Our troop has been meeting at the same school for 66 years. Now we are told we will not be able to meet there probably into 2021. So we, too, are scrambling to find alternate meeting places. This also affects our Pancake Breakfast fund raiser. Dale
  3. Florida Sea Base advised us that refunds would be sent in 30 days.
  4. Pathway to Adventure Council (Chicago area) just announced the cancellation of all summer activities at their camps.

  6. I agree with Fred. Let's not dilute the program during this temporary problem, especially for younger and new scouts who will still have time to do all the requirements after this situation. If there is a problem for a 17.5 year old, I would hope the BSA could make waivers on an individual basis and not a blanket policy for all. Dale
  7. Having sat in on 50+ Eagle BOR's , and having done the same amount of SM conferences for Eagle, when scouts are asked "What is the highlight of your Scouting career?" I would say the vast majority of them answered "Summer Camp".
  8. Very well said. Especially Point #1. A few years ago we had some parents who were only there for their own children and it caused a large rift among both scouts and adults to the point of shouting matches. Not a pleasant situation for anyone. A well thought out message. Dale
  9. Let's try to get appropriate ads. The latest one for bras and lingerie doesn't seem right for a Scout forum.
  10. We have a similar situation. 3 boy patrols, 1 girls patrol. There are 2 SPL's (one girl, one boy) and 4 patrol leaders. Working very well so far. Dale
  11. I believe all the money collected should go to the troop and then the Troop could decide to donate a portion to the senior center as a service project. The individual scout should not make that decision. It would open a can of worms if the scout wanted to donate to a cause not supported by the majority of the troop or the BSA.
  12. Happy Holidays to all of my Scouter Forum friends! Dale
  13. Well said Jameson. I totally agree Dale
  14. Very nice. We had two very influential leaders pass within three months. Might look into doing that. Dale
  15. One of our former ASM's was a woodworker and made a gavel out of a piece of wood from our summer camp. Unfortunately he passed away way too early from brain cancer, so we use the gavel symbolically to feel he is still with us. Dale
