FL Patch Traders?
A Cub Leader in England left me a message. Tracey will be visiting Orlando, FL (I wonder what's there to visit? :-) ) in April. She has asked if any Scout Leaders in the area would like to swap patches and badges during her visit.
If you are interested, please email Tracey at:

Sounds like an opportunity to chat about international scouting and demonstrate BSA hospitality for any of you way down south.

$30K Art Scholarship
As winter drags on, the snow keeps falling, and temperatures refuse to climb, it's a great time for scouts to tackle the Art merit badge.
I just found Doodle 4 google
which might be a nice bit of motivation for some scouts to try their hand at Art. A $30,000 college scholarship and $50,000 grant for his school will be awarded to some young K-12 artist that submits the winning doodle.
The theme for the competition is: If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place...
- the enthusiastic scout might also use this work towards the Inventing merit badge!
Entries need to be complete before March 20.

LNT Master Educator Course
How would you like to camp in Moab, Utah for a week in September?
The Utah National Parks Council is sponsoring a Leave No Trace Master Educator (LNT ME) course with 5 focus options - Frontcountry, Mountain Biking, Backpacking, Rafting, and Horseriding - from Sept. 15 to Sept. 20 at the Entrada High Adventure Base.
This is an opportunity for you to expand your LNT abilities and become authorized to train more LNT Trainers. Every BSA council should be working towards having LNT MEs locally, so you might contact your Council Outdoor Ethics Advocate to find out how you can help.
See LNT Course page
for details and registration.
Two of my LNT friend in Minnesota will be part of the training staff for this course - Lucky!
