Scoutmaster Musings

Day 70:
100 days of scouting Day 70: You never know where you'll find someone ready to chat about Scouting. Had my dental check this morning and mentioned to the lady doing the check that I had been camping with Scouts this past weekend. She proceeded to tell me all about her time as a Girl Scout leader - my part of the conversation was mostly "Uh-huh" or "Huh" with all her scraping, prodding, and polishing going on. But, it made the time go faster. She had high praise for the Boy Scout program, wishing her Girl Scouts did more outdoors stuff, skills, and real life training. I did mention Venturing.

The BSA is trying to get more Alumni reconnected to bolster the volunteer ranks. I hope some successful strategies are developed so more of these past Scouts become current Scouters sharing their life lessons and skills with the Scouts of today.

I visited the Ashland, WI troop tonight. I gave their scoutmaster a fire piston, their SPL a camping chess/checkers/backgammon game, and everyone else a neckerchief blank to carve from Whittler Bob - he's got tons of different blanks you can buy for your troop.
