Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter March 3, 2015
Blog     3 Mar 2015 | 9:50 pm
Turns out the BSA National Annual Meeting is coming up this May in Atlanta. Since it's close a guy in my council has been trying to round up a crew to attend and he's invited me to join the caravan. I've obviously never been to this event but apparently anybody can sign up to attend so I'm considering it. Right now in the world of Boy Scouts I don't have too many official titles. In the Cape Fear Council (where I live) I am part of a 100th Anniversary Committee led by Bob Walton. The local council was chartered in 1916...

Signs, Signals, and Codes Merit Badge
Blog     3 Mar 2015 | 12:09 pm
The Signs, Signals, and Codes merit badge is a new merit badge for Boy Scouts.  This merit badge encourages Boy Scouts to explore different methods of communication, including Morse code, semaphore, braille, and cryptography. I think this badge could be the basis for a fun series of meetings for a troop or patrol. Get the Signs, Signals, and Codes merit badge pamphlet to learn more about this interesting topic. The Signs, Signals, and Codes merit badge requirements are shown below. (...)Continue reading the article at

Issue 435 – March 3, 2015
blog     3 Mar 2015 | 9:45 am
________________________________________ Dear Andy, While at the Philmont Training Center for a week-long session on advancement a few years ago—which overall was very good—we spent part of one day talking about getting a new Scout to First Class in his first year. This topic keeps coming up. I understand that somewhere it’s written that making First Class in one year increases retention. But, to be completely candid, I’ve never seen a Scout accomplish this. It’s usually two; sometimes more. But we’re being told this, with no clear explanation as to why the National Advancement Team keeps pushing to get a Scout to First...

Bedwetting and Scouts
Blog     3 Mar 2015 | 9:05 am
Every so often I hear from a Scouter or parent about a Scout who has a problem with bedwetting. It goes without saying that I am not a medical expert, but I did a little research and several sources agree an estimated 3.75 -5.25 million boys (and a smaller number of girls) in the United States have a medical condition known as nocturnal enuresis (NE) or involuntary urination during sleep, commonly called bedwetting. At those numbers NE is one of the most common pediatric health issues. Once considered a psychological problem NE is most likely caused by a developmental delay in the bladder that children eventually outgrow. While disease is rarely the culprit...

Tuesday Talkback: Does your troop have an adult patrol?
Blog     3 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
Boy Scouts belong to patrols; Boy Scout leaders don’t. These adults fall outside of the typical troop structure in which a senior patrol leader helms a group of patrols, each led by a patrol leader. But in some troops, just for fun, these adults form their own patrol — if in name only. In some troops, they’re called the Geezer patrol. In others, perhaps in a nod to an adult leader’s place on the sidelines, they’re known as the Rocking Chair patrol. Should troops have adult patrols? If so, what makes a good name for an unofficial adult patrol? And what’s the BSA’s official stance on adult patrols? Let’s talk. The BSA’s...
