  1. I did a follow up on this and one does NOT have to register as a volunteer, just have a parental permission signed and a photo waiver signed. I checked with our local council and there is such a thing as a Red Cross Club that allows members to register and get ongoing partnership communications with the local chapters. Learning for Life and/or Venturing could easily be set up for this (keep the 16 year age limit in mind). First Aid/CPR/AED instructors can be as young as 16. 18+ year old volunteers who register with ARC get all training for free and are allowed to be deployed to nationa
  2. You have to register as a volunteer, have parental permission, be over 16, and be accompanied by your parent when installing smoke alarms. If scouts cannot use power-tools they can't participate in the actual installation but all other help is appreciated. If they wish to canvass neighborhoods on their own and report their survey findings, that is great, but check with the local chapter personnel to coordinate efforts with them and to make sure those that wish to get the alarms actually get them. There is a major push twice a year for installations, one in the fall before the winter
  3. https://www.google.com/search?q=ojibwe+pictures&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=6QC3uvvHpjwCQM%3A%2CtJ9YyDuS0AEGxM%2C_&usg=__gJZvB61xXTHHb_nIbBZYDAO3p7U%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjnxaDa3PDYAhVr34MKHd1-DCYQ9QEIKzAB#imgrc=6QC3uvvHpjwCQM: How many of your OA boys look like the real Ojibwe (Chippewa) Hiawatha's native tribe? Unfortunately they tend to look like what we think they should look like and don't do the real research.
  4. The Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY has displays of the various Indian traditions. No two are alike, but NONE of them look like Hiawatha a fictional character from Longfellow's poem. The real Winnie the Pooh does not look anything like the real Winnie.
  5. I have 2 wool Pendleton red jac-shirts. I also have 1 BSA red jac-shirt. I always have to look closely to make sure I grab the right one. If I grab the wrong one, no one has ever noticed.
  6. Have the boys pick their group of friends for a patrol and all this drama goes away.
  7. And if everyone knew and used Robert's Rules of Order, there would be no need for any stick.
  8. Hmmm, I have a gal that got fired up about doing a recent service project that she organized a group of elderly ladies, acquired the materials and had everyone pitch in and make lap blankets for all the residents of the local nursing home for Christmas. Sound like an Eagle project? Nope, the gal part gave that away. Did she say she had fun? Nope, not that either. Did she get any credit for it? Nope, but she did put in a public notice of thanks to everyone that helped her. I asked her a couple of Sunday's ago at church coffee fellowship about her "project". She was kinda surprised bec
  9. Over the course of about 13 years of running a Venturing Crew, I had 7 boys Eagle. Of all the boys with Scouting backgrounds, i.e. dual registered, troop/crew, only one did not Eagle. I did not have any that earned any Venturing awards. The boys knew I was dual registered as Venturing/Scouting and respected my promptings to stick with the troop and get their Eagle. I didn't need to pressure any of the boys, we were picking up some of the top scouts in the council and surrounding councils and I didn't really need to push any of them along. I simply stated my preferences and like I said
  10. We live in a competitive society. Caring community went out the window back in the '60's.
  11. Are you sure this was written by Murray? It sounds like something my wife would write in my biography now that I'm 67 years old.
  12. I had a '70 Maverick ($1,995 new) the floorboards gave out before the engine.
