Weekly Patrol Box #14

[Flexing my Patrol Box opening muscles...ouch!]

I think hibernation season is about over, and it is time to get the Patrol Box out again.  In fact, we have a big Webelos Crossover this weekend, so there is a lot to do.

To kick things off, how about this nifty little patrol box?  Our patrols are looking to build a new one, and this looked great.

With such a big weekend coming up (we are picking up 5 new Scouts), it might be a good time to look at the blog resources available to Scouting.  Each day you can pick up a ton of experience and learn from others--quick education.

  1. Recently, I mentioned Scouting magazine's new Cracker Barrel blog.  Already a favorite to read.
  2. continues to be a favorite--read about this Bobcat attack (no, it isn't the name of a skit!).
  3. LeaveNoTrace blog--somehow, it just seems like the right thing to follow...
  4. of my favorites.  Always brief and to the point.
  5. Lone Star Scouter (or Troop 483 blog)--a blog that begins with Will Rogers' quote, "The only problem with the Boy Scouts...There's not enough of them.",has to be a good read--and is.
  6. Scoutmaster Musings from is always informative and offers good ideas, like the new (very profitable) troop fundraiser announced earlier this month.
  7. Chairman's Chat is more infrequent, but worth the time.
  8. The Scoutmaster's Corner (formerly The Commissioner's Corner) is reinventing itself.
  9. Trail Cooking & the Outdoors just gets you in the spirit of getting out there!
  10. Finally, A Scoutmaster's Blog from Steve B. at Melrose Scouting Productions (think "Buttons").
Enjoy your weekend, and all of the good reads here.

What are your favorite Scouting (or Scout related) blogs?  Do you know of any written by Scouts?
