  1. In our unit all registered leaders are part of the committe. Parents are always welcome to attend.
  2. You can also check into Minsi Trails Council, http://www.minsitrails.com/training/default.asp. There are usually training courses throughout the year.
  3. First off welcome to the fun of scouts. When I started with the pack I just jumped in too. Time to get some training and ask questions. Find out about round table, you should find some info there from other leaders. There's a lot of knowledgeable people here too. And remember to have fun.
  4. The council I'm in already does things this way and I have not seen any problems with it yet. In my unit it does not seem to be a problem with the leaders.
  5. We have a pack meeting each month and we try to have 1 event a month. Some months end up with 2 events, some don't have any depending on when things get scheduled. I also encourage the dens to do activities when possible.

    Welcome and hello.

    I just looked at scouting.org and the requirements for joining Boy Scouts are: Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. That is right from national's website so 9 is not old enough no matter how you look at it. Besides I don't see how a 9 year old could get the AOL. You have to be active in your Webelos den for 6 months since completing 4 grade( or turning 10). At 9
  8. OGE: That is how I thought it worked. And it does work!
  9. I believe that my council already has mandated traing. If I remember right all direct contact leaders need new leader essentials(this is scouting now), leader specific, and youth protection training within 1 year of registering. I have not heard of any problems with this yet.
  10. I would not do anything to punish the scout. Like mentioned already a Cubmasters Minute on Scout behavior in and out of Scouting could be a good thing to do. You could say something about being Scouts in and out of uniform and that you should do your best to act scoutlike all the time.
  11. What documentation you need is up to your TC. Should not be much though. My TC asked for a couple of letters from people in my pack on some things. Nothing to be nervous about, he is a fellow scouter remember.
  12. That's a hard one to answer. It really depends on what you consider a poor leader. Someone who is new could be a poor one due too lack of experience, but with an open mind could become pretty good. So in that case yes it is better than none. Or you could have someone who does it their way only and won't listen to help. That could be better off with none. So I guess that if you have a poor leader that is willing to improve than a poor leader is better as long as the leader isn't harmful to the youth.
  13. I used to be a Buffalo, and a good ol Buffalo too But now I've finished Buffaloing, and I don't know what to do I'm growing old and feebleand I can Buffalo no more So I'm going to work my ticket if I can Back to Gilwell, happy land I'm going to work my ticket if I can NE-IV-207
