  1. Does anyone know of a place where I can buy Old (lightly or not at all used) overstock or knock-off knee high scout socks with the thick red bar? I saw one pair on EBay and they were $30...im not paying $30 for socks lol. But if anyone knows a site or maybe words my ebay search better than me and can direct me to a place where I can buy the old style knee high socks. I mean so company out there has to be making knock off scout clothes? If not maybe thats a business I could get into lol?
  2. I hope they do, those look neat. I wish I would have known about that one when I got in in 2006. Im not sure I get why there only 3 year programs? They encourage arrow-men to do service to their lodge/council/camp why would they make a limited thing? Also is 2015 our 100th year for OA?
  3. Alright thanks for the reply, I wonder why it was discontinued? Looked neat but oh well lol.
  4. While browsing google on random scouting awards I was linked to this EBay posting http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200477639645#ht_500wt_1154 He list it as the "OA Service Medal" It looked neat and I was curious so i googled and it and was not able to find any information on it. Can anyone tell me about this award?? I would like to see if its something I could earn because it looks pretty cool, or is it another one of this discontinued programs? Again I would like to earn this not buy it but I think he gave it the wrong name because my searches turn up not
  5. Sciff i only brought it up because Rick said this was a step towards that.
  6. I was just suggesting a merger would create a mutated organization.
  7. Im sure there are other ways to up membership other than so drastically change our program. By the way was the comment about Venturing sarcastic?
  8. Rick why integrate? We have Girl Scouts, Venture Scouts and a ton of other non scouting programs that offer scout-like stuff for girls. Why fix what isn't broken? I really am not fond of the phrase "Catching up with the rest of the world" This usually means compromising something I along with others dont want to compromise. Cant us boys have anything to ourselves? Im not sure I would be interested in a co-ed program and I doubt we would have the same impact if we went fully co-ed. Are girls able to earn eagle in these other country's scouting program? From what Ive read America has one o
  9. I do plan on one day getting that scout training award at some point, however as it stands now its still a ways away due to tenure requirements.
  10. If it werent for facebook I wouldnt know about most of my OA Lodge events or friends graduation partys. Facebook and other networking sites can be dangerous but if used properly are very useful. I'm just waiting for facebook to be integrated with E-mail.
  11. People tend to act different on the internet. The things people my age post on facebook is ridiculous. (im 18 btw) Some "like" pages about weed and beer and stuff and they are clearly underage. No employer will find it as amusing as them im sure. Im friends with my parents, fellow arrowmen, my fellow camp staff members, scout leaders, younger scouts from my troop, my boss at camp and even my Grandma. So Before I "Like" or post anything I try to think how the various people may interrupt it. As for would people be able to tell I was a scout? With all my pictures I have up, groups I
  12. I cant say this is a bad thing. Thanks to the internet you can now do the course online in about an hour, thats what I did.
  13. Lisa if he didnt want to be the center of attention maybe he should have thought twice about speaking out to the press? Also if its on the internet its in public domain.
  14. Scoutfish where can I see this facebook stuff? the only link I see is to the news article. Also if he gos to church maybe he can talk to a religious leader and be guided back to the right path? He has a choice.
  15. http://www.scouter.com/forums/viewForum.asp?forumID=41 This is the equipment board. It may also help to go to a camping store and talk to a rep in person? -Nick
