BSA Card Decks
Have you checked out the Scout Shop Christmas Catalog? Lots of gift ideas in there, from an offcial BSA basketball to BSA long underwear! With the ever-growing selection of stuff that BSA is selling, I was kidding my wife this summer that they will soon offer BSA diapers so boys can get going the day they come home from the hospital. Well, I haven't seen those (yet) but there IS a BSA branding iron now - I guess those die-hard scouting families could put the logo on a new baby's behind so there's no doubt about it. :-) :-) :-)

There ARE some useful items available, though, and here's a couple. The Scout Shop has come out with a couple new card decks that your troop should include in its resources. We've got the Scout Skills game and the Deck of Knots and they've been very helpful in helping scouts learn the skills and having fun and competition in the troop meetings.
We'll be getting the Stars and First Aid decks right after Christmas and put them to use right away.

Deck of Scout Skills
64 questions and answers for scout skills taken from the scout handbook and fieldbook.

Deck of First Aid
Cards for all the first aid rank requirements and techniques for proper treatment.

Deck of Knots
Instructions and illustrations for all the Boy Scout knots plus lots of others.

Deck of Stars
Glow-in-the-dark constellations for night exploration and identification.
