  1. Here in southeastern Idaho our fees are $750. They cover registration, travel (by plane,) and lodging. There are only a few of us going, but I am pretty excited, Yours in brotherhood, Sam Fife
  2. Hey I'm a lodge cheif from Idaho, I wanted to say congradulations too Kieran! West Is Best!!
  3. Hey, I'm a lodge chief wonderin what kind of special programs'll help to get quality lodge. I don't think our lodge has got it since 97 or something like that. I'm ready to work, and just want to know what things your lodge does GREAT that would assist in the quality lodge program. Thanx guys, Yours in the Wimachtendienk, Sam Fife of Shunkah Mahneetu
  4. i dont think im a "paper" eagle. i guess i just dont like to bother waiting around when i could get going and move on to other things. thats just the way i work. when i got my eagle i was also a brotherhood member of the order, and a freshman in highschool. i dont recommend getting it young, especially that young. but different strokes for different folks. i'm the kind of person who sets goals and gets done what i can. waiting around can be a waste of time and cause people to get bored and not follow through. i knew i'd get busy with other things and didnt want to risk not getting i
  5. it wouldnt have happened had my dad not been so supportive of me. i let him know i had that goal and he made it possible. he was the newscout leader at the time, and was the newscout district chairman as well. he had held the meetings for the newscouts in the troop in my livingroom for 4 years prior, and i had sat in. i even began teaching due to his lack of assistant. that happened by about the time i turned 9. I still was able to catch the meaning of my rank, and the spirit of scouting. i think the most important thing for someone whos trying to earn something (especially as imp
  6. I'm a new lodge chief, and i've stumbled on the scoutreach program. i believe it is one of the greatest things our lodge isnt doing. this program would not onla publicise the order in every troop, but it would help with quality lodge, and more importantly it would help those units who need it. my question to you all is how do i most effectively impliment this program into the lodge. we currently do nothing with the scoutreach mentoring program, but that will change. i just want it to take off running as fast as it can. thank you all inm advance Sam Fife Lodge Chief Shunkah Mahn
  7. i agree with Lynda J. the older you get the more distractions you have. the younger guys can more easily catch the spirit of the order and have less other things going on. the guys without distractions are a huge asset to the lodge.
  8. thanx. ya my brothers set a pretty high standard. 1 was a 2 term lodge chief, and the other was a section chief. both are vigils and much revered around here. i just took it a little farther. got into the program and just couldnt quit.
  9. i was inducted into the order the weekend before i turned 11. so i was 10 yearts old at the time. i was a star scout, i am now 14, serving as lodge chief, and went through my vigil a few weekends ago. i also earned my eagle scout just before i turned 12. i think that the age thing is one to be concidered on a case bey case basis, and parent and scoutmaster support is a big thing to consider as well. mine were both great!
  10. ya im here too. I'm the lodge chief of Shunkah Mahneetu in the grand teton council. we got south eastern idaho and a little bit of wyoming. West Is Best!!! And if you have any suggestions on how to make my lodge better i wanna hear them. i just got elected 3 weeks ago when the lodge chief was elected section chief. and i want to add some new programs to make the lodge better. and any neat ways to retain membership would be good too. the lodge is small right now and it doesnt need to be. i want to fix that. anything you could say to help me would be greatly appreciated.
