100 Days of Scouting: Day 76 to Day 80

Anyone every notice how much driving is involved in Scouting?  I keep an old 15 passenger van simply because it is the easiest way to move a lot of Scouts and their stuff.

And it is paid for.  But "The Beast" is getting old, and that will present a new slate of problems in the future.

More days:

Day 76
Day 77
Day 78
Day 79
Day 80

How many miles do you drive for Scouting?  Enough to keep track of for your taxes?

100 Days of Scouting: Day 71 to Day 75

That means that many of you have been reading along for over 2 months now---and I appreciate it.  Scouting takes a lot of effort, and reading other people's ideas feeds the fire

More days:
Day 71
Day 72
Day 73
Day 74
Day 75

From field trips to thinking, Scouting takes a lot of effort.  Stick with it!  The results are worth it.

100 Days of Scouting: Day 66 to Day 70

I really like the Centennial rank badges. Whether for Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts,  having that "2010" on it signifies something special.

This whole season of Scouting is something special.  The Scouts we have in our pack, troops and crews now will be in their 50s and late 60s when the sesquicentennial rolls around--older than many of us are now.

The rest of us?  Waiving from the floats in the parades!  I plan on sticking around to see it!

More days:
Day 66
Day 67
Day 68
Day 69
Day 70

Young or old, each day we spend on Scouting creates another brick in the foundation for the future.  Doing your best?

100 Days of Scouting: Day 61 to Day 65

More Scouters keep commenting on 100 Days, and some are even joining in.

It is great to be a part of something that is helping to keep Scouting a part of daily life.  Kind of like going to church on Sunday versus living like every day was a church day!

More days:

Do you treat Scouting like something special?  Do you try to be a good Scout matter how old you are?

100 Days of Scouting: Day 56 to Day 60

100 Days is well past the halfway mark now.

This is a busy time of the year.  Webelos Scouts moving to the troop.  Summer camp questions almost every day.  And pack meetings...never forget the energy and stress that go into making a good pack meeting.

More days:

What keeps you motivated for each day of Scouting?

100 Days of Scouting: Day 51 to Day 55

Despite the picture, Scouting isn't all fun and games.

But it is a lot of fun.  The 100 Days of Scouting is humming right along, cruising into the last few weeks.  We have so much planned that is going to make it into the list!

More days:

Spring is in full swing--how are you taking advantage of it to help build Scouting?  Tell us about it in the comments!

April Fools Day

April Fools Day is upon us.

I was burned once pretty publicly and don't care to repeat it for anyone else.

A Scout is Kind.

Not that I mind being fooled in the comfort of my own laptop though...;-)
