    Philmont Gear Review

    Thanks for the review, we just received our date for next year and I am now in GEAR MODE. Pretty much made up my mind on pack (Osprey 60) so its the other stuff I am thinking about. You mention your sleeping bag and I guess I didn't realize how much the temp dropped, I was just going to use my small compact summer bag but it sounds like I need to be looking for a 30 degree bag. Is that what you're telling me?

    Campout planning...who does it?

    Of course they won't, that's why sometimes I will provide them with a list of available options. BUT I dont give them list until I feel its needed
  3. There is no Earning Create a name for the Patrol, get them the Patrol Patch. I typically call in the Troop for this portion of the learning, if you have one available at the time

    How tight are your scouts?

    You are correct...however it is a standard the Troop set, yes ultimately the scouts could say "we don't want to wear neckers" however none have ever challenged the "Troops Standards"

    How tight are your scouts?

    Depends on the SM in my opinion. If he grew up in scouting he'll probably prefer the way he wore it

    Selling Camp Cards

    Sure it is, we have several scout parents that do this for their scout. Sorry to here that Thrifty, curious what is your Council ?

    My Colman fan! I have a hard time sleeping HOT. This one great for our Canvas tents at camp, it has a magnetic clip and I just position it over my head https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Cool-Zephyr-Ceiling-Light/dp/B00168XMD2/ref=asc_df_B00168XMD2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167131408724&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6062650836623885653&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9013543&hvtargid=pla-272554032220&psc=1

    PW Derby Car from past year

    I would simple state rules are rule....and if the scout wasn't present then the scout doesn't run period. I had the similar situation, however I was lucky enough that they did indeed make another car but that it "sucked" and they wanted to use last years car. Told them last year cars wont pass inspection.

    Can a CO profit off a unit?

    Hell I'd do it.... that's just me Wait nevermind, you only get this money once a year. How many times a year are you serving hotdogs? once a month? for 12 months ?

    First Year Scouts Should Parents Attend

    NOW IF this is what the parent truly does then I 100% agree with what you're saying. If the OP wants to go do all the training and the fun adult stuff then yes GO and have fun....but don't be up your sons Butt watching over him and stopping him from having fun.

    First Year Scouts Should Parents Attend

    I believe that's a Great Idea.... I am NOT my son's SM, he attends another Troop. I have learned to let him do his thing and he seems to enjoy when I am not looking over his shoulder. I do go on campouts with his troop from time to time. When I go to Summer Camp my troop and his troop stay on two totally separate sides of camp. From time to time I do find my way over there just to see what he's into.
