  1. Fellow Scouters: I am working to correct ALL the outstanding customer service issues that need to be dealt with. I apologize to all of you for the very long delay in answering and dealing with each of your issues. I am currently the only person handling these and considering the fact that our shipping and order entry system was inaccessible for awhile I have numerous problems to correct and follow up on - in addition to my regular job. Please be patient a little bit longer. I am not ignoring you - just overwhelmed with issues that all need attention NOW at worst and at least a month ago at bes

  4. The following message was accidentally deleted-I am re-posting, below. YIS, MaryAnn Posted by: TheCommish (New Member) Posted on: 1/13/2001 10:36:50 PM I hope this will help, but here it is. There is a formal training for COR's. The material should be available through your DE or the Field Director, however, and District Commissioner worth their Insigna should have it as well. As for quality unit? NO. The District Exec is required to visit the COR's or IH's at least once a year for quality District. As for training, I have put together a power point on COR's and Committe Chairs

  6. Scouting Community - can anyone help with this or offer suggestions? Subject: Eagle Scout 1963 My husband received his Eagle Scout award in 1963 here in Columbia, MO. We suffered a total house fire in October 1999 and we lost everything, including my husband's Boy Scout and Eagle Scout memorabilia. It is my desire to be able to replace this for him (his Eagle Scout). Our council said they had nothing from 1963 and that we might possibly be able to locate something via the internet. Can you possibly help me?? I would love to be able to replace this for him, especially since our s

  11. You may be interested to know that the next issue of SCOUTER Magazine(after the one due to mail this week) will begin a New Regular Section about Scouts with disAbilities. It will feature articles written by Scouters who share the difficulties, the benefits, the practical solutions, the successes of working with these Scouts who, as one Scouter told me, "can do and/or learn most everything any other Scout can do - it just requires a few more creative ways of doing and teaching." Several articles have already been contributed for the initial section. If you or your Scouts wish to share y

  15. How about 1. Make an insect zoo 2. Make a terrarium 3. Make a lightning bug lantern 4. Take a plaster cast of animal tracks 5. Take a break during a hike and sit as quiet as possible - afterward talk about all the nature sounds they heard. 6. Push a foot-long stick into the ground. Look at the shadow. Put another stick at the end of the shadow. Check back later to see if the shadow moved. Discuss why? 7. Pick up litter while hiking. 8. Discuss fire safety.
