Weekend Patrol Box #19

A cool snap has struck just in time for Labor Day weekend, low 70's to begin the week.

It can just as easily be in the 90's here this time of year.

So camping is definitely on the mind. Definitely not mowing the lawn this weekend...;-)

All across the country, the BSA is kicking off celebrations of the Centennial Year this week. What is going on in your area? Contact your council to find out! There is a committee busy, busy, busy working on your council's celebrations.

  1. In honor of the pending Labor Day weekend, a little information.
  2. Does your sponsor do anything special for you? Like a parking spot for Eagle Scouts?
  3. Merit Badge of the Week: Backpacking by Scoutsigns
  4. Art of Manliness blog: How to Build a Pinewood Derby Car
  5. ReverentScout: Den Chiefs (short audio link) New service that is off to a good start.
  6. Art of Manliness again: International Backpacking tips Yeah, this is a pretty interesting blog for the Scouting world.
  7. Corn Scouts or Scouting for Corn or just corny...
  8. BSA Adventure Base 100 Tour schedule. Coming to a large city near you...or close anyway.
  9. Did you miss National Marshmallow Toasting Day? Thought so. A Boy Scout's Blog is a good effort by a Scout, too.
  10. If you are going to help a little old lady...this is the way to go. The purse might be a problem though. (30 second BSA commercial)
  11. X-Mouse, Spider-Goofy, might not care so much but your Scouts will be interested!
Well, that should keep you busy and give you lots to talk about with your Scouts. Celebrate Labor Day to remember your "hour a week"!

Pinewood Derby, marshmallow toasting, zip lines, backpacking and corn mazes--definitely something for you to comment on! Feel free to leave a comment below or send me a tweet.
