  1. FROM: https://www.sageventure.com/scoutingcentury/eagle/ Some info concerning "standard kit / antique finish -vs- sterling silver" Concerning the Stange Type 5 (and sub types) Medal... "Late in 1979, the price of silver rose dramatically compelling the National Office to change the metal content of the Eagle Scout medal from Sterling silver to a non-precious medal. The Stange type 5 medals were silver plated copper, oxidized to black, buffed and lacquered. Sterling silver medals were also available upon request." Concerning the Stange Type 6 (and sub types) Medal... "In 1993, the
  2. Here is the progress report... Since the time I posted the message, her oncologist was concerned with some spots found in her lymph nodes and her spine. This past Wednesday, she had another cat scan done in Indianapolis. Later that day, her oncologist gave her a report that the areas of concerned are gone. With prayers, she is doing better. Thank you for your prayers for her and keep praying that this will not return.
  3. This is not a Scouting topic (although I am going with the 12th Law and the part of duty to God). I need some help on this. Please read the post. URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: My Church Pastor's wife (Tina Reed of Bicknell, IN-Bicknell First Wesleyan Church) found out today that she has some cancer (melanoma) spots on her leg. She has been battling this for the last four years. Right now, I am worried about this. We need a prayer chain started with this. Please pray for my Church and pray for her.
  4. There may be some former Scouts that come back as Scout leaders that might find out that the Scouting that they were acostomed to isn't there. Keep this in mind, that policies seem to change very rapidly now. In fact, some may see this as this-Today's Scouting isn't the same as "my" day in Scouting. Some may feel disapointed in that. Sometimes a disapointment may lead some leaders (both former Scouts and "Old-School Scouters) to quit Scouting. I have not quit Scouting, nor will have no plans to in the immediate future.
  5. Thougts and prayers are needed for the residents of Vanderburg and Warrick Counties in Indiana (Territory of the Buffalo Trace Council). A Tornado struck that area. Here is a link dealing with this: http://www.cnn.com/2005/WEATHER/11/06/indiana.tornadoes/index.html
  6. I decided to bring this post "out of the mothballs" in celebration of a new Eagle Scout in my troop. He is the first Eagle Scout recognized in my hometown in 12 years. http://www.geocities.com/scoutingloogootee/eagles.html(This message has been edited by htc1992eaglescout47553)

  9. On September 20 of 1992, I went through my Eagle Scout Board of Review. Perhaps the most difficult question I was posed (and I would recommend this question to be asked) "What are your goals for the Future?" I would also suggest these questions: "Where do you see yourself in _________ Years?" "If you didn't succeed in your project, what would you have done differently?" Most of all: "What would you consider your favorite part of Scouting?"
  10. If you already know how to do the presentation to Boys, then I would say adapt of what you already know and teach it to the Girls.
  11. pjzedalis, It was not my attention come out harsh. Whether you realize it or not, those in various communities will place Eagle Scouts (Those who consider themselves Eagles or those who earned Eagle) will place that individual on a higher pedastal. In simple language, if someone finds out you have earned Eagle Scout they will have higher expectations of you. Thus you will be held accountable (by your hometown, your troop, and your fellow Eagle Scouts) Am I asking for all Eagle Scouts to be perfect...No (if life were perfect, then life would be extremely dull). Nobody is perfect
  12. ___________________________ pjzedalis wrote: But I don't generally like to be referred as an Eagle Scout either. I'm not active in the program, and I don't agree with all of it's ideals. So the word Eagle Scout is nothing more to me than accomplishing the highest rank. It's not a model or religious ideal to live by for me. ____________________ To me, that reply sounded like a reply from a "Paper Eagle Scout". Being an Eagle Scout is MORE than just earning just another rank. With the rank, comes responsibility. If someone found out that you are an Eagle Scout, then that person
  13. If you have not been given the charge or forgotten the charge, read closely: I have the honor to give you the Eagle Scout charge on the occasion of your elevation to the highest award in scouting. The Scouts of all nations constitute one of the most wholesome and significant movements in the worlds history. You have been judged by the Boy Scouts of America as being worthy of this honor. All who know you rejoice in your achievement. Your position, as you well know, is one of honor and responsibility. You are a marked man. As an Eagle Scout, you have assumed
  14. Back in the day, I was a Webelos Den Chief. I mainly used that position to satisfy one of the requirements for the rank of Eagle. I was supposed to be a Den Chief for 6 months. That did not happen. I was a Den Chief for 2 years, and those two years was fun and enjoyable.
  15. Upon request, any den (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos) can have a Den Chief.
  16. I keep on seeing a phrase "Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle". Anyway, if there is one phrase I have heard that kinda ticked me off is hearing someone refered as a former Eagle Scout. To me, there is no such person who is a former Eagle Scout (except those who wants their name off of the Eagle List). I am NOT a Former Eagle Scout. I AM AN EAGLE SCOUT (no matter how old I get)! What are your thoughts on this?
  17. Check this site out: http://www.emf.net/~troop24/reqs/knotwear.html
  18. If this is being worked on now, or being planned for the future, I think it would be a good idea of having both a printed edition as well as an electronic edition (for PDAs, computers, et.)
  19. To the best of my opinion, the idea of uniforms is to have the Scouts feel that they are on equal footing (no matter what economic class they are from). I also think that the uniform is a source of "bragging rights" (what awards did they earn and so on). Someone asked if the uniforms were dropped, where would they put the patches? I think that uniforms bring some sort of tradition to Scouting.
  20. It has been said that 2/3 of Scouting is Outing. Hmm. scOUTING. Without OUTING, then Scouting would just be SC.
  21. I have just bought some replacemet tie tac and clutch back backings, and I highly recommend them. Here are the sites: FOR TIE TAC REPLACEMENTS http://www.jewelrysupply.com/EJS/tietacks.htm FOR CLUTCH BACK REPLACEMENTS: http://www.jewelrysupply.com/EJS/scatterpins.htm Both comes in Gold Plated and Silver Plated. These are especially helpful for the newer Eagle Scout Presentation Kits.
  22. I would say if I could redesign the uniform, I would update the design of the cloth rank insignias.
  23. Here is some news concerning scoutstuff.org: "Coming Soon! A newly designed scoutstuff.org, complete with online ordering, wish lists, and more!" I would figure that on-line ordering will be eventually coming to that website.
  24. The "Universal Arrow" is STILL used and STILL sanctioned. The "pocket rocket"? That sounds like a toy from the 1950s or a mini-motorcycle or something else(lol).
