    Play Station 2 or X-Box

    I'd get a gamecube for them. That system seeems to be more appriopriate for their ages.

    Most Influential Americans

    In my opinion Jimmy Carter didn't do much. Reagan should've been there instead. Martin luher king jr. is there Lincoln should be there also.
  4. taken from nascar.com http://www.nascar.com/2005/news/headlines/official/09/27/fotw.dover/index.html Nextel Fan of the Week: Dover Int'l Speedway Gary Puzzella of Allentown, PA September 28, 2005 09:40 AM EDT (13:40 GMT) Thanks to Packmaster Gary Puzzella, young boys in Allentown, PA are being urged to join Boy Scouts with the help of Nextel Cup racing. Puzzella leads Cub Scout Pack 77, a group of 45 boys ranging from grades 1 through 5. His pack has embraced Race to Cub Scouting, a racing-themed membership initiative that encourages parents and young boys to explore scouting. ALSO Are you fan enough? Learn how to become the next Nextel Fan of the Week! With the help of honorary chairman Jeff Gordon and local Chevrolet dealerships, parents and their sons are urged to learn more about their local Scouting programs. Puzzella, a long-time NASCAR fan, quickly embraced the program to help boost his pack's membership. With the help of the racing recruitment program, he's registered 20 new scouts to Pack 77, double the number in past years. The highlight of Pack 77's membership efforts will be a race car Halloween parade float modeled after the No. 24 Chervolet complete with the Cubs dressed as pit crew team members. "I'm very excited to bring my love of NASCAR into scouting, kids really connect with NASCAR and Jeff Gordon," said Puzzella whose been involved with Cub Scouts for about 10 years. When he's not busy with scouting, Puzzella enjoys watching and attending Nextel Cup races with his friends and family. He also participates in several NASCAR fantasy leagues, one of which he's commissioner. Puzzella has one more racing-related interest, helping his son, a Cub in Pack 77, build a wooden race car for the Boy Scout Pinewood Derby.

    Too many positions for one leader?

    If u take the UC job you'll have to give up all your other positions. Keep in mind to put your family first in making this decision. As a UC u go to a lot of meetings and District activities and may not spend the time u want with all 3 of your kids at their respected ages.

    Patches vs. Program

    I was able to visit the jambo back in '93 as a cub scout. I had 2 scouters come up to me and the one guy gave me a scuba pin from the '93 jambo and the other guy gave my his council's boy scout camp patch from that year. It wasn't about the patches but it was about how nice and friendly people are. It is one of my favorite memories.
  7. My SE was canned (but others are saying he deicded to leave...yeah right) about december-january. Too much damage but its a step forward. I did notice that he made 70k plus benefits. Very cheap to live around here and that is a good amount of money for my area.

    Dept. of Defense & Jamboree

    I've been at college since septmeber and I really don't post much but I do read the forums everyday. Merylin if it was to me I would've banned you a very long time ago. All you do is start trouble and i'm really sick of your little anti-scouting stance. Before you gone to say you have rights on this form you don't. You have a privledge to post here and just remember that Lincoln threw out habeas corpus and I wouldn't mind seeing something similar done here also.

    Stop the Insanity!

    I don't see why they can't have a uniform for tigers-bear and a separte one for webelos just to cut down the cost. I knw when i was a Bear i didn't get hat or the neckerchuef but I did for webelos. Tiger program "merged" as a full program I guess now. THen just have like cub scout logo hat/neckerchief just like the cub scout diamond patch or something. I believe the webelos program has too many restrictions on it to be a step towards boy scouting. THey shoudln't even have the tan uniform in my opinion.

    In need of a shot!!

    Sounds like to me your burnt out. If your doing this stuff ith jambo stuff and possibily whatever other stuff your doing your just causing headches for yourself. Family needs to come first. I think you might need to let go of some of your responsibilites or this next year might be a miserable year for ya.

  12. Just thought I'd let you know that the new 2005 items are on the website. http://www.scoutstuff.org

    Using assumed names

    Your comparing apples to oranges. Move the thread to the politics forum although I believe it should be locked.

    Overbearing moderators

    The moderators are doing a fine job. he threads they do close they have good reasons for closing. They let a lot of things slid in the politics forum.
