  1. After a busy summer of families moving (we are on an army installation), I have no adult leaders remaining. Does anyone know of a special story, speech, demonstration, etc. to get adults to volunteer as den leaders and committee members? Any advice will be appreciated!
  2. Hi Fellow Scouters We need to do an appeal for volunteers in our pack, and someone had a really great presentation involving a tape measure, and cutting off time depending on your age and your son's age. It ended up with only a few inches to make a postitve impact on your child's life. Does anybody know what I am talking about? If so, I would appreciate having the actual script. Thanks in advance ! I get a lot of really great info from everybody in these forums, and it is always great to see how other packs function. Have a great day!
  3. Dan As CC of Pack 1 in Heidelberg, you and your family are more than welcome to join us during your stay. If you have some dates when you will be in Heidelberg, we can see if our schedules will be compatible. We are an American pack, and most of the families are in the military or work for the government in some capacity. I also work for the Transatlantic Council, and the best way to reach me is via my email at work: rmartin@bsamail.org I look forward to hearing from you. Robby
  4. I know this is going to sound silly, but I work for a council, and we need to purchase several dozen sets of WB regalia to award when tickets are finished. I had an email address to contact Gilwell , but it has been returned more than once. Does anybody have a good link that I can use? I now we can buy the regalia from national, but the UK stuff is so much nicer. Thanks in advance!
  5. We are a pack located overseas in Germany, and we have to deal with many regulations from the military about when and what we can do for fundraisers. As the military has started its drawdown, our numbers have become smaller and smaller. As it is, our council already works with a skeleton staff, but the teritory covered by this council is much larger than any stateside council. They cover England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Turkey, and I think one or two other countries. This puts an enormous burden on our families not only to support the pack, but the council with FOS. I would appreciate any fundraising ideas that anybody might have. We do not sell popcorn as it apparently was a huge logistical nightmare, and expensive getting it shipped overseas was costly and it usually got misdirected. We have Bowl-a-Thons, & sell christmas trees. I have seen several very good ideas in this forum, and am hoping for more. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi Everybody! My name is Robby,and I am new to the Scouter forum. I serve on the committee for Pack 1 in Heidelberg, Germany, and things run a little differently overseas, but I would really like to have some assistance on having a Raingutter Reggata. We have never been associated with a pack that has this event, and I think the boys would really enjoy it! How does one build the tracks is my biggest question. Are the gutters elevated in any way to provide some assistance from gravity? I know that the boys provide their own "wind", but it really as simple as using 10 foot sections of gutters?I have read about other people using PVC pipe ssplit in half if suitable gutters cannot be found. I would appreciate any information on this subject! Tanks in advance! Robby
