  1. Well i think this my first new post in over a year. Adult women in the OA does not disrupt the program in the least. Some of the best advisers in my lodge have been women. Now as for girls being admitted, that is a different story, and hopefully one we will never have to deal with.
  2. Well first off, Ockanickon is sort of over rated but thats just my opinion. Sinoquipe is in PA not MD and i only remember it because of my 1st year expereince there. I honestly cant reccomend it. The walk from your tents to program is far to long, but since i never was able to pick badges there i cant really say much. If your looking into MD i would say Camp Henson would be a nice selection.
  3. Here is another Scout's perspective on this matter. I am in a unit where our leaders expect us to fill up every spot and get really ticked off at us if they think we are doing anything not related to meirt badges. If we arent doing that we are supposed to be helping with the construction of a "troop gateway..." In my opinion many scout leaders arent aware that in their goal of having their kids get loads of badges they are turning many away from the scouting program. Some parts of the schedule should remain free. Part of summer camp isnt just earning badges but having fun with old and new frie
  4. good luck dealing with the ACLU!
  5. next month i head up to NE4C's conclave, i have never been but it sounds awesome.
  6. congrats! Its really great hearing about people who really exemplify what the OA is all about.
  7. My patrol is called the beaver patrol...but i dont think its us...congrats!
  8. Greetings and welcome to the forum. I believe that the SM probobly feels that your son is to young. I am in a troop where if you are not eagle by 15, some would consider you a failure. But i have a friend in another troop who is in a similair situation. Almost identical actualy. He resolved it in the end but the whole reason his SM wouldnt sign was because he felt my friend was too young to make eagle. I would be willing to bet that this is the reason in your son's case. Good luck to you and him.
  9. haha! i was just about to post the big nate ones when i noticed that you beat me to it fgoodwin! Well todays big nate features him attempting to sell calanders for his troop- here ya go http://www.comics.com/comics/bignate/(This message has been edited by VAordeal)
  10. Congrats! Sounds like a great outcome!
  11. Ok, i feel kinda dumb! One night has past and i have already forgotten the answer to the chief's question. If a a fellow Brotherhood member could send it to me though private message, I'd appreciate it. I can describe the ceremony and other stuff to prove that i am a member, if you dont trust me. Thank you.
  12. hmm...i never thought about that. I think i will just keep this name though! Yeah you guys were right the ceremony was a really good one. I just need to get the script at my next ceremony meeting. I'm getting bored with doing the pre-ordeal.
  13. I just thought i would share that tonight, 11 months after my Ordeal, i make Brotherhood at my district's camporee! I am really looking forward to it. DB Amangamek Wipit 470 WWW
  14. its funny that you should post this topic, I am currently in the process of recruiting new guys for my chapter's ceremonies team. It is a hard task. The only semi-decent way to do it seems to be emails or by good old fashioned snail mail.
  15. funny, i am not having any trouble now. I posted that message in January. Are you sure you have the admonition spelled correctly?
