    Stain on Uniform!

    On Saturday, June 10th, 2017 I was standing in the parking lot near the entrance to Camp Rainey Mountain with a cup of coffee in my hand. It was early in the morning and the Troop was preparing to depart for home. A couple of rambunctious Scouts were horsing around and one accidentally bumped my elbow causing me to dump my coffee all over my Class A. I thought for sure I'd have a horrendous stain, but somehow to this day it's barely noticeable. The stains on my shirt have better stories than the patches. And they bring back far better memories.

    Success is rented, and the rent is due every single day. (Or substitute your choice of one of twelve key points of the Scout Law ☺️)

    I need advice!

    Brian, what do you think you should do? Any why? I'll echo RememberSchiff: weigh the pros and cons of day camp. My take: I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable. Few people find the sweet spot that combines the best of both.

    This forum is giving Penn State more press than my local laundromat.

    Do Your Scouts Use The Handbook Logs?

    I was extremely pleased to have six Scouts bring me their handbook this evening and ask to have things "signed off." Their challenge seems to be remembering to document the Service, Camping, and Hiking Logs more than the rank requirements. They're usually all over those. My challenge is slowly changing the culture from Scoutmaster sign-offs to PL sign-offs. Baby steps...

    How do you end your Troop meetings?

    SM Minute then the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and finally Scout Slogan.
  19. Good point DuctTape. Unfortunately all of the modules do NOT give you the correct answer on an incorrect attempt. Plenty of from for improvement here.
  20. If they were requiring people to complete it the FIRST time and THEN allow you to click thru, fine. That's not the intent apparently and that's again an unfortunate oversight. Gotta learn it to earn it.
  21. That is correct. The intent is for non-Eagles such as your Mom and other adult volunteers. I also noticed I could click through them. I owe it to myself and my Scouts to not do so even if I think I know it all. (And I know I dont! )
  22. True @ItsBrian, but those courses aren't intended for Eagles.
  23. Oversight perhaps? Otherwise it's something else that doesn't have to be earned.
