Welcome to all the fellow Scouters who have recently joined. I am both surprised and humbled to report that I was awarded the District Award Of Merit on March 17. I had no clue it was coming until an announcement at our District leader recognition dinner. Some of my fellow Scouters conspired to recommend me for the award.

I have been a scouter for 14 years. With the pack and the troop. I was treasurer and then committee chair for the pack. With the troop I am treasurer and the training advancement coordinator. I am a counselor for several merit badges. I have been the proud parent of an Eagle Scout for 3 years. DS is in college and no longer active with the troop, but I am still there most Tuesday nights.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

I am an Eagle Scout. I was a very hard core backpacker in my youth. I went to Philmont 5 times. One trek it rained for 10 days straight, and smiled every minute. I have hiked and canoed the Boundary Waters, Isle Royal, Smokey Mountains, the Rocky Mountains. Solo hiked a number of times. My kid is a cub scout and we (cub scouts) camp on the ground and I have no issues with it. My DW would prefer to be up high and dry. We have compromised, we have a hybrid now and I took the TV out. I still tent camp just not as much as I would like.

My oldest daughter was a Girl Scout in the 1980s. I was one escort for her group on a trip from Maryland to Lake Champlain. The Scoutmaster was deathly afraid of water, to the point that only those of us with maps knew we were camping on the lake. What with day trips and enough trees acting as a visual barrier, some of the girls were unaware of the lake's presence until the final night's party at the pavilion overlooking it!

Personally, I went to Boy Scout summer camp probably around 1955. Allowing for memory lapses here, I was to receive badges or whatever recognition was given for archery and a 5-mile hike. Well, Somebody lost the signed-off records, and on our next meeting back home I was told "tough." That didn't sit well with me. Can't recall whether I quit or was kicked out, but that was my last night as a Scout.

It's hard to believe that that fine organization has come under fire for believing in God and opposing what was considered a perversion prior to PCism.

Was involved in Girl Scouts from 1st grade through Jr. High (they call it middle school now. Brownies, Girl Scouts and Cadets. There wasn't a program around for Sr. High girls, so I did Jr. Achievement instead.

Eagle Scout checking in here.. Troop 102 in Texarkana Texas. Earned My Eagle in the mid 80's and consider it one of my greatest accomplishments... My 11 year old son just crossed over to Boy Scout and I have become actively involved with his troop. I have made a rule for him that he cant get his drivers license if he doesn't have his Eagle .. I don't think that will be a problem.. I think the Boy Scouts is one of the best organizations left in this country. I still use lots of the knowledge I learned from scouting and it instills some great values in young men... GO SCOUTS!!!!
