    I ask one question.. Who do you view as the Sentinel in the story? Free feel to share. FrankBoss
  3. I posted another story based on a Scout legend I've heard a few times.. this was a hard one to write since the guys telling me about it were so serious and hush hush... but I hate to see these stories get lost in time Link to the story -The Sentinel Spirit FrankBoss

  6. 12 points of leadership

    A true story... This was a moment when I had the honor of being a Scout master. I posted it on my Media page... 12 points of Leadership FrankBoss
  7. I've been writing little Stories for a while and blogging a bit. Of course being a diehard Scouter I tend to gravitate to the topic of Scouting. Last year the local council removed a old building and I wanted to share the history to as many scouts as possible... It's a good story! My Series The Legends from Scout Camp "Wootten" Thanks for sharing FrankBoss
  8. Getting a eagle project shot down

    The Scout showed me his notes.. They did touch on the good stuff (Saftey equipment and refreshments) But they said he needed to add "Value" since the fence already existed he could replace the fence and add a park bench. Oh man. I've heard so much of this catch phrase. "Adding Value" It just baffles me... FrankBoss
  9. Getting a eagle project shot down

    well so far what I got was this is no more than maintenance. I think our councils interpretation of the guidelines are needing addressed. I'll see who I need to talk too. Frank
  10. Getting a eagle project shot down

    I was rather sick I've been so for a few months.. so I did not make the meeting and wanted to hear some other points of view before going threw the motions of trying to get the kid motivated, it kinda broke his spirit. So I asked the other adult to tell me what happened and this is what they told me. "The Eagle Board did not like the fact that his project was not adding value. His project was replacing the fence at the Kiwanas park and they deemed it to be a maintance project that are no longer allowed. Now if he was adding fence to section off an area that may pass. But just replaceing something is no good" Frank
  11. I had a kid with a eagle project shot down that I didn't understand. First it's not My Child but a kid in the troop that I thought had a great project, that took unique resources and labor. A youth camp that lends its self out free to youth clubs , schools and churches was hit really hard by Ice storms over a few years and the fence that was damaged by tree's and water run off needed totaly replaced. Over 700 feet replacing T post, reconstructing corner post and running 4 rows of wire for over 2100 feet of material there alone not to mention concrete and pipe for the corner foundation. He went to eagle board and they shot him down because there WAS already a fence there in the first place. I was shocked with the response so I'm looking for a little insite... I guess I'm trying to get the boys to think out side of the "prefabbed Park Bench" box. Thanks Frank
  12. My Old A frame Tent

    I would love to see your setup.... I think the scouts miss out on the lessons learned by Crafting their own shelters. Frank
  13. My Old A frame Tent

    I bought the euricka timberline this morning, its a good tent but I'm still looking for a Two pole A style tent... something so simple for the kid to put up. I have a older version of the Timberline and its a good tent. but its not so simple to put up and take down to my Cub Scout. Frank
  14. My Old A frame Tent

    Yes that was too good of a deal to pass up. I just ordered one... I have one of those in my trailer but it's been used hard and is very old. Frank
  15. My Old A frame Tent

    I'm kinda leaning tword the MSR Missing Link...Any one have any insight with this kind of tent? Seems pricey for what it is... Frank
