    Time to post a Scout at every stop sign and traffic light! 😀

    poly/rayon/wool shirt?

    Son's Troop is doing just that tomorrow. Outdoor service project for a business. Class A's will let any lookie-loos know its Scouts and not a bunch of boys messing around on private property. Being proud of their uniforms makes it an ever easier call. 😉

    Scouts' Day 2018

    Happy Scouts' Day to all my fellow American Scouters as we celebrate the Boy Scouts of America's founding 108 years ago! Are your Packs/Troops/Crews doing anything special to commemorate?

    Eagle Scout Extension for new 2019 Scouts

    Since we're answering for one another... TAHAWK, surely you've read enough of Jameson76's posts on this forum to realize he would not imply such. 😒 Rank requirements on this subject are clear.

    Cookie time!

    One of our scouts was explaining the parts of his Frist Class badge to a younger scout. At one point the young scout exclaimed "Hey, the trefoil is a cookie, too!" Samoas get my vote.

    Howdy, y'all.

    @mrkstvns welcome to the forum!
  12. Meet with the Scout and have your 20 year Eagle join. He could see you in action, do a little giving back by offering words of wisdom and inspiration for the young Scout, and help you meet YPT all at once. My $.02

    Time line from Scout to Eagle

    @scoutboy welcome to the forum! Are you currently a Scout? Volunteer? Involved parent? Other?

    What would you do?

    Mash, any reason to think this could be anything other than a one time thing? If the Scout has been in the Troop for a while (?) and there's no track record of this kind of behavior from the parents, your decision is logical. Clearly defining your expectations going forward is smart. And if those expectations are not met, there's plenty of good suggestions here. I personally like @MattR's.

    Fitness Goals for Scouters

    Sentinel, this is likely true for all Troops across America. Average is not good enough. Higher expectations for the win.

    Fitness Goals for Scouters

    This sentence struck a chord with me because I fear it may be the current reality. I like to think (foolishly?)we as Scouts and Scouters are collectively better than average.

    Greetings from Belmont, CA

    Hi, Scotty! Welcome to the forum. Lots of great conversation to be found here. Glad your son is (re)enjoying his Scouting experience. Are you involved with his Troop in any capacity?
