Thank you for the kind words, William.

About the 87th Panther Group:  Is that somewhere in Hernando county, or Hernando the town (of sorts) in Citrus county?  If it is the later, I work at Hernando Elementary School, and get access to the morning show.

Mr. Carter,

Thank you for the welcome and for connecting us to others in the area. I will definitely reach. My son and I will enjoy meeting and getting to know others in the organization. Thank you again.

Howdy William

I have not heard from Will Adamson yet.  I will send another email his way in the next couple days.... 

I was checking out the 141st facebook page while researching this org.  Im sure they will be handy when I need to get signed off. I'll reach out to James as well .

I am already thinking of a couple real awesome spots for some Brownsea Training sights here in Central Florida. If you are looking for some great camping spots anywhere between Gainsville and Tampa, Gulf to Atlantic then let me know.

I am going to organize an interest meeting in late Spring/Summer. I know each volunteer has to be registered and pass a background check. Is the background check automatic or is it something we do separately? If someone already has a background check for other organizations can these be used? Is there specific training at all that volunteers must complete before they can take on kids?
