    Vote by peers the only way in?

    Just wanted to post to say thank you for this thread and the great responses. My son did not get tapped out last night and he was crushed...I mean...it surprised me how crushed he was. This thread has helped me to think about ways to positively handle this with him when I pick him up from camp tomorrow. Of course, by tomorrow he probably will not even remember how he felt last night.....lol.

    Just named Cubmaster!

    Check your council's website regularly and pass along and plan to attended special events. Work really hard at helping your DL's the plan great/fun den meetings. Build a solid relationship with your CO's Boy Scout troop if it has one. Thank you for your service!

    My son was the cook for his patrol tonight....

    Pan fried walleye....oh my....gosh that sounds good. All went well. He cooked tacos in a bag and black beans last night. Pancakes and bacon this morning. Fixed ham and turkey sandwiches for lunch. He says it all went well....he was in a good mood about. Going to try to get a little more info later. Only found one tick attached to him.....have no idea how it got there.

    I hear you Stosh...I should have clarified that this was his first time as the "cook".
  9. Sitting here wondering how it turned out for him. Dude was stressed about it as I took him to meet the group before they left for the camp...guess he has seen some older boys who were not happy about food being late, not enough, etc. in past camp outs. Years ago I never thought I would worry about my son "cooking". Lol!
  10. Wonderful! Thank you for sharing.

    Pack elections and by laws

    Elections? How about begging somebody....anybody....to step up to fill a position on the committee?

    Coming to terms with my son's troop choice

    My son picked his troop and it was different for the one associated with his Pack. That was tough for me because I was a den leader for 4 years and developed friendship with many of the Pack leaders/parents. At the end of the day I think he made the right choice for him.....I am proud of him. Best of luck to you and your son......and your Scouting career does not need to end now.
  13. Here is a great article about one of the best high school running back's in the country who just earned the Eagle Scout rank. He has been in Scouts since the 1st grade. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/12/14/4540101/charlotte-catholic-all-american.html#.UrAqUTK9KSM

    Getting Sentimental

    Yeah...I know the feeling. Most of the boys in the den that I lead for 4 years crossed over to Scouts and I think they are doing well. My son chose to go to a different troop than where most of the other boys went so I don't get to see them as often. My "super scout" 's mom posted on Facebook last week that he had just earned 2nd class.....he is on his way and I am proud to have played a part in his trail.
