Immature Adult Leaders
ArchWahl replied to little dove's topic in Open Discussion - ProgramNot all good deads are rewarded by a meadal. He needs to know this. Sure life is full of dissapointments..but don't expect reward when...according to the scout slogan..good deeds should NOT be done with the expectation of some-sort-of reward. I hate to sound harsh but even if he does'nt get over it...he'll have learned from the experience, and it will help him with his decisions later on, but only if he knows what is expected for him to learn out of it.

What is too bad of weather to camp in?
ArchWahl replied to Double Eagle's topic in Open Discussion - Programanybody else from Alabama laugh at the "upper 90's and 90% humidity" comment as bad weather?....been there done both those, try about 110 heat index, raining and "un-airconditiond" tents (I've never heard of one with and air-conditioner)...you get used to it...unless there is a tornado, flood, or other such natural happing we go.
A wagon on a backpacking trip
ArchWahl replied to k9gold-scout's topic in Open Discussion - ProgramIn the future your leaders should put some reasearch into the type of camping you are about to venture into. Obvousely they did not relize that a backpacking trip is no place for a heavy, in-the-way "wagon" or wheelbarrel...If it cannot be carred on ones back it has no place on a backpacking trip..period. As for the money situation. The leaders who decided that it would be "neccessary" are the ones I would consider responsoble. They decided to bring it, borrow it, and to make or let the boys handel it. RW. Eagle Scout ASM Alpha Phi Omega, Delta 1237
OA Tapout & Ordeal
ArchWahl replied to Bob58's topic in Order of the ArrowI find it hard to believe that Ordeal was held during a summer camp week in a summer camp that was in operation. Most lodges have a policy or even bylaw that requires Ordeal not to be held until after tap-out. This may be part of your problem.
