  1. Please stop ... and allow me to withdraw my comment that seems to touch off other sensitive issues other than its original intent ... to get everyone to rally behind Mike Lahoff. No malice is behind my post other than its good intention. My apologies to Ed. My prayers and best wishes for full and complete recovery to Mike Lahoff ... from a fellow scouter. No more ... no less ... and no hidden meanings! Good luck to all in your scouting journey! YIS
  2. Ed ... I am, on the other hand, somewhat disappointed. Of the 808 active users that I am starring at, we can only muster 13 well-wishes, prayers and concerns! We have well over 230 folks who have viewed this thread. Come on Scouters ... let's cheer on our fellow brother and get him back on his feet soon! Let seek the blessings from the highest authority from your respective religion and pray for Mike Lahoff full and speedy recovery and nothing less! Let's make this thread longer than that 12 pages in the "Politics Forum." Everyone who is reading this should join in ... Scouts and
  3. No KoreaScouter ... but not bad of an idea. One problem though ... the only people who know the tune are the "older" crowd ... I mean "older crowd"! Yep ... even some of the late 20's and early 30's parents don't know it! I had to play Roy Roger's song on the background so that the boys and the "younger parents" would know the tune and follow along! Either way, our 2nd-Webelos got a kick out of it. Hopefully, we get the same reaction from this year 2nd-year.
  4. I guess that I am not surprised to see a lot of responses (150 to 300) and postings to touchy issues such as "gay" and "atheist" ... it's human instinct to be antagonists. Sometimes, some of these topics will get 10 responses in an hour. Yet Ed Mori's news of Mike Lahoff tragedy on the "Open Discussions" Forum gets only 14 well-wishes and prayers in the last 3 days. Ed is forwarding all concerns, well-wishes, and prayers ... forwarding them Mike Lahoff. I'm just amazed at the overwhelming responses to Ed's thread! ... I know ... I know ... sarcasms get me nowhere! If I were
  5. Ed, If you are going to see Mr. Lahoff and his family, on the behalf of the Scouters and Scouts in the Sam Houston Area Council, please send our prayers and thoughts to them. We pray that he will have a speedy and full recovery. Many thanks. YIS Long ps: I challenge everyone on this Scouter Forum and all over the world to continue to contribute and keep filling this thread with well-wishes and prayers . Hopefully, Ed can eventually print it out and forward it to Mr. Lahoff and his family. Many thanks.(This message has been edited by Pack38Scouter)

  8. Here is our Pack's farewell song to our Webelos last year. We would recognize the Webelos at B&G (this is not their AOL ... that's separate) and the whole Pack (all 120 scouts and about 250+ parents and siblings) sang the song to them! It was great! Apologies to Dale Evans and Roy Rogers! "Webelos Happy Trails" (Sing to the tune Happy Trails by Dale Evans ) Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then. Were proud of you and all that you have done here. Just think of us, remember all our fun cheers. Happy trails to you,

Its not running right. Cub 2: Did you sand it properly? Cub 1: Yep, first with 400 grits and then 600 grits. Cub 3: Did you deburr it? Cub 1: Yep. Cub 4: Did polish your axle? Cub 1: Shinny like a mirror with
  13. Season Greetings from overcast 50 degrees skies over Houston, Texas. No snow ... again! But 32 degrees weather tonight will help make Christmas Eve feels right! Wishing all Scouters on this forum ... a prosperous New Year and another memorable scouting year! Thank you for your scouting suggestions, tips and friendship for the last six months ... looking forward for more guidance in the coming new year and in our scouting journey. Have a safe and healthy Holidays YIS
  14. mk ... actually I was referring to the size of average size of troops within our areas! We here in Texas tend to have "large" size in everything! Our Pack is about 120-130 boys strong and our brother Pack (we were one once ... 6 years ago) is about 110-120 boys strong. I think that our District averages about 35 a troop. I usually tell my parents that the size of the troop does not necessary constitute a good troop. A good troop is the one that your son will enjoy his scouting experience with ... of course having a great patrol method program is the added bonus! The larger troop .
  15. sst3rd ... first of all, we are Webelos (We'll Be Loyal Scouts) and we really do not know what the troops has to offer! That is why troops need to have a proactive recruiting efforts to educate the Webelos and Webelos parents about scouting. Take a look at the link "Selecting a troop; what criteria to look for" (there are other discussion about joining a troop ... lost Webelos ... etc... that you can get a lot of points-of-view). There a lot good information about what a troop should do and what a Webelos is looking for. We have two troops in our immediately area. They don't do any
