  1. I attended Wood Badge this past June at Camp Freedom in Dauphte, Germany - it was awesome! The week long course gave my patrol the opportunity to really bond and enjoy the entire experience. Next year's Wood Badge is going to be even better! The dates are June 16-June 23. You can fly into Frankfurt and take a train and there will be someone to pick you up. If anybody has any questions give me an e-mail: Leigh.Jackson@TAC-BSA.org Council website: www.TAC-BSA.org

I know this is a controversial subject but the SPL is supposed to be elected by the scouts and not dependent on who has the highest rank.
  4. What a wonderful idea! It sure would save the $40 bucks you have to spend on offical shorts then the $44 bucks for the pants!
  5. Very good perspective - I like that much better!
  6. I have been lurking now for a few months and have really enjoyed the information and resources available from so many different scouters! I am a new SM for a very small troop, really we are just a patrol. I have been the ASM since the troop started a year ago. It has been rocky and still proves to be a challenge and brings a whole new meaning to the word perserverance. I love the scouting experience though and really believe in this program. A little about my family - I have Webelos that will be crossing over to BS this summer with his Arrow of Light (he thinks he is 15 but is only
