  1. Actually ... no, they won't. The Council Services Division has stated that "about a dozen" vendors were initially invited to participate, and five submitted proposals. Four followed through. Unfortunately if you were not on the initial list way back in '99, you have been frozen out ever since. The CSD continues to inform even commercial companies that they are still not allowing additional vendors to participate, despite continued promises to the contrary. Don't get me wrong. PackMaster, TroopMaster and the rest are great programs that provide a big benefit for units. My own pac
  2. The modules we're building aren't designed to be plugged into the actual data network but just to handle the data in the ScoutNet 2000 format in the same manner PackMaster and TroopMaster do.

Does anyone have any

Another is in charge of our Scribe, our Librarian, and our Historian. The third is in charge of our six Instructors (Aquatics, First Aid, Camping & Hiking, Knots & Lashings, Map & Compass, Nature Study, and Outdoor Cooking). I know it is repeated in other sources but it is on page 106 of the Senior Patrol Leader Handbook under "Other Troop Positions" as follows: "With the assistance of the Sc
