  3. Eagle Charge: _____________: "Scouts of all nations make up one of the most wholesome and significant movements in the world's history. You have been judged by the Boy Scouts of America as being worthy of this honor. All who know you rejoice in your achievement. This award, as you will know, is one of honor and responsibility. You are a marked man. As an Eagle Scout, you have assumed a solemn obligation to do your duty to God, to Country, to your fellow Scouts, and to mankind in general. This is a great undertaking. As you live up to your obligations you bring honor to yourself and to your b
  4. Those look cool! I have never seen them before. Can you bring/fit anything in them comfortably, day pack etc? How are they in windy weather and rainy weather? YIS
  5. Anyone else Laugh Out Loud when they opened up the BSA website!!?? I'm still laughing, that is one funny picture! Looks to me he's too happy to be wearing the uniform incorrectly! My questions is what is in his right hand? YIS
  6. I would like to echo SWScouter, How is Supplex nylon and sparks?
  7. Would this supplex nylon stuff be good for winter time use as well? YIS
  8. BrentAllen, thanks for the response. Out of the different material short sleeves you wear, which is the best in the hot weather, what keeps you coolest?
  9. What material shorts/pants do you all wear? I have to buy new shorts and pants and plan of getting a couple of each. Any suggestions? I see the shorts are available in different materials as well as the pants. What kinds do you all prefer? Especialy for different occassions, camping, formal etc... Thanks! Poly/Wool-shorts/pants vs Poly/Cotton-shorts/pants vs Cotton-shorts/pants I have to also get a few new shirts, any suggestions for the different seasons. Too many choices imo! Three different materials for short sleeve shirts! What should I choose!? YIS
  10. Yes I have considered some reproduction stuff but I have not had much luck locating them. Any suggestions of military re-enactment repro stuff/manufacturers? Websites etc...
  11. How long were these jackets in circulation? I have seen pictures of Scoutmasters from the 40's wearing neater and shorter length versions than the early 20th century ones... YIS
  12. Does anyone know what kind of Jackets were worn I believe prior to the 1950's by Scoutmasters. They have 4 pockets on them, and are worn with a belt. I believe the only insignia is the Boy Scouts of America strip. I have been trying to track down some pictures, but they are hard to find. BP and Uncle Dan are seen in some old photos wearing them... I have heard that they are called norfolk jackets. Anyone know? YIS
  13. "Urban Scouting"? Here we go again (remember 1974?). What happened? I was born in 84. Eagle in 03. I know of some bad stories of scouts during the vietnam years. Is that what they are referring to? Fill me in... IMO, scouting in urban areas should be looked into in a big way. Lot's of urban kids need the solid direction scouting can provide. YIS
