  1. That one works. Thank you! Our troop is stuck on Jambalaya when it's cold. A little variety would be a nice change.
  2. Sorry, all I see is a large screen with a minus sign in it.
  3. Recipe please! Looks like a nice warm dish for a cold campout.
  4. Congrats to your scout for what they did. Hopefully you let us know soon. As far as the rarity of the award, my oldest scout received the National Heroism with crossed palms in 2013. At that time, he was the 278 scout to ever receive it. They are very rare. There used to be list on the scouting.org website, but that list has since disappeared.
  5. Lions are so much fun! I hope you find a great den and pack to join.
  6. I read through the website; it seems geared towards girl scouts only. (Although the opening picture is Boy Scouts.) Will there be Boy Scout/Cub scout curriculum added in the future?
  7. What size unit are you dealing with? We have been able to hold 1 pack and troop activity each month; but we have a small pack and a small troop (less than 10 scouts in each). All activities have been outdoors.
  8. Have you seen the Advancement form that must be submitted to the council office? I have attached the top portion of it (less my personal information). To order the Merit Badge I have to fill out this form and sign it. That puts my name on the record that I verified it. Item 7 - I get to verify they are registered as a merit badge counselor. Below that, I get to certify that it's all correct and following the standards. Scoutbook is the easy way to verify this. If there is going to be a problem, I would rather find out now, then when the scout is applying for Eagle and the offi
  9. After logging into Scoutbook this morning; I had to share a screen shot for my personal kids: Even with a 3 year age gap between them, they have both earn the title of Eagle within 7 months of each other. The younger one even finished it during COVID 19.
  10. THANK YOU!!!! I needed something fun for our virtual cub meeting this Monday. This will be perfect. I might turn it into Bingo too.
  11. Does your son or unit use Scoutbook? The Eagle Rank Application is mostly filled out there for you. Dates included.
  12. Not familiar with his work, but Amazon has a couple of his books including a preview of them. I might pick up the Boy's Book of Camping and Wood Crafts. Thanks for the recommendation.
  13. Yes I did have my last shirt altered. But I'm not a great seamstress so I took it in. They added darts to the back and since I'm vertically challenged, the shirt was also shortened. I have never received any comments that anyone even noticed. I would say go for it.
  14. Adding to the list - Many Point Scout Camp in Minnesota. They multiple subcamps - take your pick - Buckskin has a dining hall; Ten Chiefs has troops cook 2 meals while the third is pre-cooked and delivered; Voyageur has troops cook all of their meals.
  15. This is our local camp. When the tiered pricing came out it was very confusing as the statement that they expected most people to pay Tier C was left out. It's a great camp to go to. The river runs along the south side of the property. Lots of wildlife.
  16. So where and when is this campout? I'm a female; I like camping; I'm registered; I have YPT. Can I bring our girl Webelos den?
  17. Thank you for bringing up this topic. Yes this is the exact reason I haven't taken Wood Badge too. Other than Wood Badge, our camps usually don't start up on Sunday morning until 8:30. One of the local parish's have a 7:00 am mass that I can make it to. When we go camping I make it a point to find a parish near our camping site and schedule around them.
  18. Challenge accepted! Can't wait for the next campout to find out. Thanks!
  19. With kayak we play bobber tag. Use a fishing bobber, try to toss it into another persons boat. If you miss the bobber is up for anyone to grab and re-throw. 1 point for each time you get the bobber into another boat. We did try it once with a beach ball, but teenage boys with a large ball and paddles...the ball never made it in any kayak.
  20. We borrow the stomp rockets from our BSA service center. I hope they are allowed.
  21. Link for that poster above: https://www.scouting.org/familyscouting/ Looks like girls in the troop can start Jan. 2019.
  22. I checked my stash and it seems I don't have any emblems or beads. I knew I was happy to see the beads go away, but didn't realize I was that happy!
