    Outings with our military

    “They have this range all set up where the boys can shoot an M4, M240, and M249. It maybe the first and last chance a lot of these guys get to shoot some of these weapons. They do have some bigger guns and they were telling them that if they want to shoot those, they have to join the Army,” said SM Murdock. What a great Scout outing. Thanks to US Army and SM Murdock. https://www.wibw.com/content/news/Boy-Scouts-shoot-Army-weapons-at-Fort-Rileys-32nd-Annual-Apple-Day--494075211.html Though I did not enter the military, Scouting ,and only Scouting, provided me some exposure to military - staying at USAF bases on Philmont trip, Air Force Academy, airshows, ship visits, range shooting...all great.
  3. SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Sept. 22, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A video titled “A New Direction for Children and Youth in 2020” has shed some light on the program The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is planning to replace its involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. https://gephardtdaily.com/breaking-home/lds-church-releases-video-on-new-youth-program-slated-for-2020-will-replace-scouting/
  4. Update 9/21/2018: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided a few more details about the initiative in a statement that said a full and detailed description will come later because different aspects of the program are still being tested. ... The statement reiterates that the faith’s program will be similar to Scouting with an emphasis on outdoors, service work and character building. It won’t have a ranking system like the one culminating in an Eagle Scout recognition that many generations of Mormons strived to achieve as a life milestone. It will be for boys and girls. “Camps and other outdoor activities have always been and will continue to be a prominent part of gospel learning, building relationships, and strengthening faith in Jesus Christ,” the statement said. “Leaders, youth, and parents will be empowered to identify and provide outdoor activities that invite spiritual experiences and meet the unique needs of their children, young women, and young men.” https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/21/mormons-prepared-for-life-without-boy-scouts/ https://www.lds.org/youth/childrenandyouth?lang=eng

    Lone Scout Questions

    Simply falling behind or is it more complicated?

    I agree with Peter Thiel 's statement in the posted video that reformation of college education will come from the outside. IMO, outside from education consumers, parents and students, in high schools. My younger son is not attending high school, he is taking courses at a local community college - better teachers, better courses. He has friends doing the same, other friends attending charter or private schools , others being home-schooled, and still others though physically in a public school are taking Virtual High School classes from Stanford or BYU. If grassroot's educational consumerism can prevail over the state DOE and teacher union, reformation of college education will follow. My $0.02,
  7. “The Pine Tree Council of the Boy Scouts of America is very thankful to SIG SAUER for their leadership and participation in the Maine Shooting Sports Experience. This event is a cornerstone to funding and expanding our scouting programs. Thanks to the marquis sponsorship from SIG SAUER, we were able to increase our fundraising by 10% over last year,” added Eric Tarbox, Scout Executive/CEO, Pine Tree Council, Boy Scouts of America. “Our Scouts were also thrilled to be joined by professional shooter Lena Miculek who was very generous with her time and talent, and participated on one our teams and provided lessons. SIG SAUER really made this a once in a lifetime experience for all of the participants that will be talked about for years to come.” The shooting event was held on September 6th – 7th and included a competition event at Camp Hinds in Raymond, Maine. https://www.ammoland.com/2018/09/lena-miculek-attends-sig-sauer-maine-shooting-sports-experience/

    Simply falling behind or is it more complicated?

    I am amused, tinkled pink actually, at all the young , talented makers and entrepreneurs who are saying no to Apple, Google, Amazon, Wall Street, ... job offers and starting their own companies. Quite different from back in the day, when we were trained to be employees of GM, IBM, GE, Wall Street... My $0.02

    Scoutmaster drowns while rescuing scout (UT)

    About 10 people die each day nationally from drowning, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is about 3,536 fatal drownings annually. The Utah Department of Health estimates 26 people in Utah die annually from unintentional drowning. Children 4 years old and younger have the highest drowning rates in Utah. Forty-three percent of child drownings in Utah happen in open bodies of water, 30 percent happen in pools, 18 percent happen in bathtubs and nine percent happen in “other” situations, according to the Utah Department of Health. For every child who dies from drowning, there is an average of five other children who receive emergency care for nonfatal submersion in water. https://universe.byu.edu/2018/09/18/drowning-is-a-leading-cause-of-death-1/

    72 hour rule

    "If an event is 72 hours or longer the adults must be registered whether they attend for 1 hour or the entire time. " Ok, I guess we will run 3 separate 24hr events which will occur on 3 consecutive days,

    Membership card signed by Roy Rogers

    IMO it was popular because it showed cowboys could still be cowboys in the present day plus it had just about everything else to draw an audience and entertain. I wanted a dog like Bullet. Though different times, I see similarities between Roy Rogers and Fred Rogers. I think it is great when someone famous will stop and sign an autograph on a baseball card, scout card, etc. for a kid. On my '69 trek to Philmont, we got tickets for a Cardinals game. And who was playing them but our home team Phillies. So there we were, uniformed (with community strips) South Jersey scouts in the right field stands cheering our Phillies during pre-game warm-up. We yelled their names and stats, the NJ towns we were from,,and all things Philly. We were loud but courteous and ignored except when the Phillies told us to... A Cardinal player came over and welcomed us to St. Louis and asked if we wanted his autograph. What scout would not want a Bob Gibson autograph! We became new Cardinals fans.
