  1. From A Scoutmaster's Blog: The 2012 Twelve Scouting Days of Christmas. (Try not to sing this at work.) http://www.melrosetroop68.org/blog/?p=3316
  2. More patches have been added to the page recently. Check them out.
  3. "A few more years and a Scouter's lifetime career might be filled just by taking mandatory training.... " It does seem to be heading in that direction. I plan to retire before that happens.
  4. We do not have any American Heritage Girls troops in Central Minnesota. In fact, there are only a few in the state according to their website. I think they could use a bit more promotion.
  5. Well, I am not going to miss it. I had fun with it when it first came out but once it became pathetically slow I gave up on it. I think the BSA could have had a good thing there if they would have taken care of it.
  6. I received a letter today from Justin Szalsa, the director of 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem, with some unhappy news this morning. One of the stars of the film, Colin KC Byers, has passed away. He was just a few days short of his 18th birthday. You can read Justin's letter at http://www.melrosetroop68.org/blog/?p=1960 A short video of Colin's days as a Boy Scout, including some footage from his Eagle court of honor can be seen at
  7. Curious as to whether any of you have been using any of the Scouting apps available for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or cel phones, and which ones you use. Steve B Scoutmaster, Troop 68 http://www.melrosetroop68.org/blog/?p=1869
  8. There is a seller on ebay selling dvd's of Mr. Scoutmaster. http://cgi.ebay.com/MR-SCOUTMASTER-CLIFTON-WEBB-DVD-/350427547158?pt=US_DVD_HD_DVD_Blu_ray&hash=item51971c0616#ht_1111wt_1141
  9. This is awesome news. The Summit is not even open for business yet but has already earned a spot on the world Scouting scene.
  10. Hmmmmm. Mr. Scoutmaster. I may have to watch that again and come up with trivia quizzes about that movie. :-)
  11. I am glad you guys are having fun with the trivia quizzes. I made them somewhat challenging because a Boy Scout (and leaders) like to be challenged.
  12. How about a little fun? You have seen the movie "Follow Me Boys", haven't you? How close were you paying attention? Take the "Follow Me Boys" trivia quizzes at Part 1 - http://www.melrosetroop68.org/blog/?p=1736 Part 2 - http://www.melrosetroop68.org/blog/?p=1745
  13. I received this movie last week and watched it over the weekend. I also recommend it. It was very well done. He did a great job with the history. It made me want to go back to Philmont.
  14. I had the chance to interview the director of Scout Camp The Movie, for the Leader's Campfire podcast (#67). He is a pretty nice guy and had a few interesting stories about making the movie. Did you know that almost all the boys in the movie are or were Boy Scouts? Check out the podcast at http://www.ptcmedia.net/category/shows/show-lc/page/2/
  15. Congrats on the 7 years, and good luck as the committee chairman!
