  1. Does anyone have a link to the BSA web site or a document that describes the coverage in detail? The city that owns the park where my son wants to do his project is asking for details. I have done a search all over the BSA national site, and the best I can find is information about insurance if you are employed by the BSA or general comprehensive coverage for scouts and scouters, but nothing about friends, family or others who may participate as well as covering the city, etc. Thanks. Regards, Steve.
  2. Howdy All! Excellent. Yesterday evening at our round table the program was about leadership and the speaker kept talking about vision. Well, I only need to be hit over the head a few times before it sinks in. Rather than looking for things to do like I have been doing, I think what I really need to is to come up with what my vision is, and as you've all said, the goals should come from that. Thanks a bunch. Regards, Steve.
  3. Howdy Guys! Thanks for the input. One of the other ASM's already does the troop newsletter. Maybe I can take on this task. Good idea. I do almost all of the round tables. Only miss due to illness or family conflict. However, the JLT is a good idea. We had a 'mini' JLT for the troop about 6 months ago. So this may be doable. Fundraising. Hmmm. We are in the enviable position of having plenty of funding thanks to the smart application of doing projects and fundraisings that include matching funds from local companies. Its like getting $2 for every $1 we raised. Now our fundraising is primarily for donations to the local council to help sponsor projects that need the $$. Along these lines, I would like to see my boys do more 'selfless' community service projects. Last year's Scouting for Food had a pitifully poor turnout. Maybe there is something I can do in this respect. Hmmm. I originally had the idea that I could setup several task as SM for my ticket, i.e. percentage retention, percentage rank advancement, percentage increased adult participation, etc. However, my guide indicated that I should focus on goals that I can accomplish more directly via my work effort rather than be dependent upon the work effort of others. While motivating scouts, scouters and parents is a job in itself, he didn't think that this would be appropriate. However, getting a CPR cert. again, Advanced First Aid, etc. is a good idea. Thanks again guys. Several things to think about. Regards, Steve.
  4. Howdy All! I am finding this more difficult than expected. According to my guide, ticket items should be a stretch and not something that I normally or already do. The only thing is that I am so active and do so much, that I am at a loss for ideas. I've got 3 items figured out, but those last 2 are hanging me up. 1. Diversity training program for the boys in my troop. 2. Our WB Patrol is going to present our project to each of our 4 council districts round tables. 3. A self-assessment of all 4 of my other ticket items. I am currently an ASM and in May will become the SM. Our troop already has a web site, eMail group, etc. I am a member of our University of Scouting staff and have done the web site and publicity as well as taught a course for the past 3 years for the UOS. I am a registered range master for cub bb & archery as well as scout rifle, shotgun, black powder and archery and participate for a full week each at cub scout day camp and boy scout summer camp. Any additional ideas would be appreciated. Thanks. Regards, Steve.
