  1. in our troop we will pay a portion of the fee. The yr i took wb, we had $200 in the adult training budget. 3 of us took wb same yr and we split it 3 ways. When our current SM took wb, 3 yrs later, we paid half. Reimbursement is after the course is completed. Our council has scholarships available up to 1/3 of cost. Our course directors feel strongly that the participant needs to have some financial stake in the matter. Used to be a bear SR517
  2. We had the same problem getting members to access our site. our SM would tell everyone to go to meritbadge.com and i'd try to counter with - there's a link on our website.
  3. In our district, Cub Scout Family Weekends are organized by the Packs with help from the Commissioner Staff. The responsibility for chairing the event rotates among the packs or may fall to the Commissioner Staff. On the BS side, the annual Klondike Derby is led by a scouter from a troop. Its a 2 yr committment. Responsibility rotates btwn troops.
  4. Gulf Stream Council SR-819 Feb 23-25, 2007 Mar 16-18, 2007 Both weekends held at Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation $205 www.gulfstreamwoodbadge.com
  5. We had an issue at summer camp this yr and find it necessary to dust off the ol' bylaws. Several months ago, someone posted a parents guide/adult patrol manual. I tried searching archives without luck. Can anybody repost it or send the link. thanks.
  6. We have a contingent of 40 going from Aal-Pa-Tah Lodge 237 (Florida). Our ceremonies team is looking forward to competing at the national level. We also have a large group of dancers. The rest of the guys go for training, fellowship and, of course, patch trading. See ya in 2 wks. sandy
  7. We have visited the space center as a troop once or twice. Camped at Jetty Park.
  8. Last yr we had coffee mugs with course #. This yr we had plastic thermal mugs w/lids that had course logo (axe and log and beads and course number). Same logo was used on hats and T shirts. Sandy ASM Fac SR743 Used to be a bear SR517
  9. Does anybody have a powerpoint-type jeopardy game? I have seen this used at other seminars and would be interested in using it at WB this yr. sandy SR734 ASM facilities/AV
  10. Can anybody give me the "outdated" cub scout jeopardy questions. I'd like to see if they were updated in the new syllabus. thanks.
  11. How about the set of bears from Jambo. I got them, kept one for myself and gave the others to guys on WB staff this yr. I also bought the one from NOAC last yr. Its good to be a bear! Sandy Grinnin' Bear SR517 staff SR707, SR743
  12. We have also used Cool Runnings and Miracle.
  13. If the food this yr was better than in 01, I'm glad I was here this yr! At best it was "camp food". If you wanted to be on a diet, this was the place to be with the portion controls in place. I was at trading post (B for best!). I'd go back and do it again. Even though we worked 18 days straight, I'd probably go back there again. We had the best group of people to work with.
  14. We're getting picked up at the airport for transportation to AP Hill. We asked about showing up in civvies vs uniform. We were told we could wear what we wanted, but it would be easier to identify us if we were in uniform.
  15. Trevorum - we were the "roadkill patrol" for SMF also - had the neckerchief. We used toy truck tires as neckerchief slide. Our patrol yell - THUMP! THUMP!
  16. I leave in 10 days and I thought I was being compulsive by starting to pack. I have a few things in a duffle - like making sure my sleeping bag will fit! I do have a list made of things I don't want to forget. Cya there!
  17. Working at the trading post, we have to be there sun, jul 17. we're the early birds.
  18. Come see me at the trading post. I've been told by unofficial sources it will be Trading Post B.
  19. My favorite of steamed puddings is Eve's Pudding. As I remember it, its similar to this, but with apples mixed in. We had apple trees in our yard and there was just so many apple tarts, apple crumbles, and chutneys one could stand.
  20. We visited in 97. In addition to those things mentioned, Brownsea Island was cool. We walked around thru merit badge midway, Army Action center, TOAP, even if you can't participate. If you're gonna visit on one of the show days, remember that the food concessions close around 5? (early for dinner) and there is no food available. Remember to bring a blanket or something to sit on at the show.
  21. Hey - it could be a new fashion statment! I already get laughed at for my OA laces in my boots. Wonder if our LEC would approve selling it out of the lodge box? hmmmm.....maybe I could give the lodge vice chief a new beamer for HS graduation...
  22. We struggle with the issue of patrol strength and patrol identity. In our troop, the scouts line up by patrols, sit by patrols, and cook by patrols, but that's about it. They don't have completed patrol flags - some are started or in various other stages, but none are affixed to poles where they can be displayed, etc. The issue really hit home on the last campout. When a 2nd yr scout was asked which patrol he was in; he responded - on the list or for this weekend? No wonder the patrols act the way they do! No wonder the patrol leaders don't know how to be leaders or get their guys to
  23. re: the $900 handbag: I'm paying $600 jambo fees plus travel expenses plus oa flaps plus miscellaneous extra uniform parts to spend three weeks of my vacation in the Virginia summer heat and sleep in an army tent. And my non-scouter friends think i'm the crazy one...
  24. We have a 17 yo star scout who came to the sm's and stated he wanted to be an Eagle. We layed out a plan for remaining mb's and target dates. He is aware of the work required of him to complete the mb's, service projects, and POS. It was his choice and (right now) he's willing to put in the work. More power to him and we'll be there to support him.
