World Challenge Help
I think the 29th Burscough Scout group would be a fun bunch of scouts to visit some day! They have come up with an energetic request to contact other scouts around the world by making a video on Facebook.
This scout group has an active FB page that you might scan through to see some of their recent campouts, cooking, hikes, and such that they have done this spring.
They are located HERE on google maps - if you zoom out a bit, you can see why they used a Beatles song. :-)
If your scouts are interested in connecting with other scouts around the world, check out the Boy Scout Trail PenPals and Postcards features to find scout groups doing the same.

Leggings, Capris, Skorts, and Scarves - these are some of the new girl gear items coming to Scouting this year.
With girls joining Cub Scouts, BSA National Supply has been making some clothing updates for the new scouts. You will probably be seeing these items (and more) in your Scout Shop in the not too distant future, and being aware of them might help you recruit more youth into your local program.
- Skorts - skirt and shorts combined, so they look like a skirt but provide coverage during active scouting.
- Scarf - I am interested to see how this fits into the uniform.
- Capris - shorter than long pants, longer than shorts.
- Leggings - tight fitting stretch pants.
It is obvious these new clothing options are intended to make scouting more attractive to girls. Sounds like a good marketing plan to me, especially if there has been feedback that the pants just do not cut it. It will be interesting to see what other "female fashion" accessories show up this year.
Updates to other Scout Shop items are coming, too. #5 in the picture is new colors for Pinewood Derby car wheels. Personally, I do not understand the value in this one, but maybe they go faster than black? Will more colors be available? White wheels would have looked better on my Marshmallow-themed car I made years ago. :-)
