    Pull-ups for Tenderfoot

    How about throwing a scale under his feet and seeing if he can pull harder?

    Family Pinewood Derby

    We take the top 4 cars from each den and run them to find the over all pack champ (1st, 2nd and third).

    Boards of Review video

    from the Guide to Advancement:" In units with fewer than three registered committee members available to serve, it is permissible to use knowledgeable parents (not those of the candidate) or other adults (registered or not) who understand Boy Scouting's aims." Would like to have had this reflected in the training.

    dry cleaning and patches

    Also, talk to the cleaner before you pass it over to be sure he will not fold over the patches and crease them!

    Sharks and Minnows saves the day

    We can always count on Ship/shore/lighthouse. One end of the room is the shore, the other is the lighthouse and the center line is the ship. you call out any of the three and the scouts run. If you yell out SURF, they drop to their bellies where ever they are. At the scout level the last to do as called is out. at cub level they don't care to win just to play for as long as you let them so no one is out. Always love pointing to shore and yelling lighthouse. Twice as much fun in the water.

    Scout Oath and Law

    I love how they hired a group of child development experts to study if cubs could learn it.... Why didn't they just ask a few cubs and their den leader? Would have been faster, right and free.

    Pack Dues For 2nd Year Webelos

    My W II's cost the pack more than any other group in awards/pizza... and We still ave to pay a full year reg and BL on them. The local troops discount bases on the membership fee already being paid on them.

    Firewood transport

    Most camps here (CT) have more fire wood laying on the ground than you can shake a stick at.

    Neil Armstrong - Eagle at Rest (1930-2012)

    He was a hero to me, but till the day she died my grandmother never forgave him for messing up the weather with his rocket. Every hurricane and blizzard was blamed squarely on him and the rest of the astronauts. Along with anytime her TV wouldn't tune in just right. Maybe now that they are both gone he can explain it to her himself.

    Differences between BSA and GSUSA

    smoothmom: Please tel me you are somewhere near Waterbury CT. My daughter's unit is a Snack and a craft unit. One field trip/party each year (candy factory party this year). Other thna that, they have never left the room they meet in. Worst part is they meet at the YMCA right up stairs from the pool... Maybe? maybe? nope. (men need not apply).
