"That is correct. The availability at local surplus stores and their typical sale pricing, as well as the large shipping charges to/from the QM Store, made them impractical to stock. Other options will be investigated in the short term, with the long…"

Uniforms

Specifically neckers. I am understanding things correctly, that they wear a red necker regardless of association with a scout group; our Chipmunks would not wear our group's necker?What [necker] dimensions are groups going with for their Chipmunks?See More

Hey Clint, I've got a question/favor to ask. Would you be able to host/put up/put up with my son Elijah for a day or two this spring, first week of April? He's 15, a Pathfinder, and a really good scout. He likes wildlife and card tricks, and bakes a great chocolate chip cookie ;) Anyway, let me know either way. Thanks!

Earlier this year I was tapped to serve as a Troop Guide on my council's Wood Badge staff. I was honored to be picked up and proudly looking forward to the experience. The other day the course director e-mailed all of us on staff and advised that due to low enrollment numbers two of the patrols would be dropped -- one of which was mine; I could stay on as extra commissary staff if I wanted. I didn't reply. The next day my daughter turned ten and as I read through the birthday wishes for her…

A little motivation

Posted on July 27, 2014 at 11:47am 3 Comments

My daughter and I attended an Eagle Scout ceremony yesterday afternoon for two boys from my old Troop (for which I serve as unit commissioner), and while she was admittedly bored I did notice when we got home that she had gotten something out of it -- motivation.

"Dad, where's my timberwolf folder?"

"It's in the garage [where it's been since we got back from vacation on the 11th], let me unlock the garage and get it for you."

And for about the next hour we worked on her…

Scouting when you can!

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 1:36am 2 Comments

The last two days at work I've been stuck on construction escort, which is dull to say the least, fortunately I've made it an opportunity to read Walter G. MacPeek's "The Scout Law in Action" (pub. 1966) and today I had a length of rope with me to practice knots. The book while small (only 144 pages) and based on the BSA Scout Law is good read -- providing anecdotal examples of each of the twelve points of the Scout Law.

Moving forward with new SG

Posted on May 1, 2014 at 1:42pm 4 Comments

I've decided to move forward with starting a scout group -- the 35th Coyote Creek (provided the number has been already been taken). I paid the $35 charter registration fee on PayPal the other night. I figured the first proactive step was to put my money where my mouth is! I still need to fill out the group application, "transfer" my daughter and I from Lone Scouts over, and of course recruit!
