I seem to remember my "Bomb Hole" question was answered, but where are the other responses?

I believe some of the replies may have been axed with the migration to the new forum?  As I do remember posting a reply as to what the bomb hole was.

Expect to be challenged in your preconceptions about what Scouting is.   Expect to learn some,  get reminded some and   share your experience some.  Expect a couple of "aha!" moments.     Expect to laugh and sing some, and  find out that it is possible (!) to camp without kids.

Bring extra rope, duct tape, a funny hat, aluminum foil, a note book (non electric) and  your filled out vision statement.  Expect a little rain (not much.  Don't you think good weather is boring?  ;-)   ).

Expect to see corny skits, meaningful SMMinutes, and  at least one other  person's  vision for our youth.

 Expect to have some of your expectations not met.  Expect to come away refreshed, confused,  energized, recommitted to the Scouting Ideal, and  ready to rewrite ALL your tickets  because, your Patrol Guide's encouragement not withstanding , none of them are "good enough". but they will be , trust me.  

 

Good Scouting to you!

Here we are, 8 months after first Starting this discussion and I am closing in on completing my ticket!  I have 4 completed, with the 5th to be in the works starting Monday.  Troop elections are coming up, and we (scoutmaster and I) have heard from scouts they they are interested in becoming Den Chiefs (my final ticket goal is incorporating DC's into my pack).  Once the elections happen and the boys get trained, we are set!  been a stressful journey that's for sure, but it is definitely one I'm glad I took!

I have Wood Badge Starting in two weeks as well. Some of my friends are on staff, and my Troops Scoutmaster and I are going through the course together. Should be fun.

Finished weekend one.

 

I'm enjoying the company of people who love Scouting as much as I do. While I am an Eagle and NYLT trained, a lot of the course material isn't new, but refreshing it is allowing me to re sharpen the blade so to speak. If anything Woodbadge has challenged me to reevaluate my troops progress over the last few years, and what I should be looking at and doing going forward.

@@Sentinel947 and @@baggss, under uniforming, did they mention the latest insignia guide revision which now allows the neckerchief to be worn without the field uniform? The official syllabus has not been revised, yet, but maybe your instructors were willing to go off script!

 

Just curious ...
