  1. The first thing that comes to my mind is Pinewood Derby cars. (This is kinda a brain storming idea so I didn't think it all the way through.) Maybe bring a piece of track and some old cars. In 8 years as CM, I have collected 5 or 6 unclaimed cars. You could also bring derby rockets or raingutter reagatta boats. How about a "Knot Board", Den Doodle, patch collection, hiking stick w/ medallions on it and a belt with sports and academic loops on it. (Ooooh, shiney things!!)

  2. THANKS !!! This is a good start. Good Luck to your son, too.

Thanks in advance!!
  6. Old Baldy Council, in So California, is offering a week long "wilderness" course Aug 21 - Aug 27, 2005. My husband & I are serving on staff. Our council holds Wood Badge every other year and has chosen to stick to the week long format. go to: www.obcbsa.org for contact info and an application. I realize that CA is about as far away as you can get, but you could always make it a family vacation and do all our amusement parks and hit the beaches. Just a thought. For what it's worth, I was part of the first class in our Council to take the new course. I think that a week lo
  7. We are getting everything ready for my son's Eagle COH and I'm trying to get a copy of the "letters" that you send to government officials to get certificates. I know that I have seen them on macscouter.com and ussscouts.org, but after visiting this site, I realize those places will be down for some time. I am running out of time!!! Please help!! I need another resource or, better yet, the actual examples. Thanks!! - Stacey
