B.P.’s Blog – Shaving-paper Notes
Blog     29 Mar 2015 | 9:05 am
During his lifetime Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the worldwide Scouting movement, wrote many books and articles directed to Scouters. Each Sunday I’ll publish a selection from his writings in the hope that you’ll draw inspiration and understanding from his timeless ideas. SOME dear old lady, not being up in the modern developments of patent razors, etc., sent me a birthday present of a little book of shaving papers. And I find it most valuable because, instead of hanging idle on my dressing-table, it hangs there to a useful purpose. I believe it is generally allowed that great thoughts occur either...

Android App Woes
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
Hopefully by the time you read this the new Android version of the ScoutmasterCG app will be available on Google play! Unfortunately the only way to get this fixed was to un-publish the old version and publish a completely new one, so Android users will have to uninstall the present app and install the newer version. Good news though – the new Android app is still free, (thanks to the continued generosity of those of you who have become backers. ) If you have the iTunes app, you’ll see some changes after it is updated, but you don’t have to do anything....

This completely updated and revised edition features dozens of full-color photos, how-to illustrations, source charts, canoeing and camping techniques, and a chapter full of hard-won advice from a couple of dozen  canoeing experts, and a new chapter devoted to paddling desert and swamp rivers. Although this is the best and only canoeing book of its type, and Jacobson writes in great detail about canoeing techniques; don’t get the idea that this is just for canoeists!...

Eagle Scout Gifts
Blog     24 Mar 2015 | 8:05 am
Every so often I am asked for ideas about choosing gifts for Eagle Scouts (gifts for new Eagles Scouts are nice, but they aren’t expected as a rule).  I believe any Eagle Scout would be pleased to receive any of the gifts listed here. Here’s a selection of Eagle Scout gifts with the Eagle Scout emblem.  The BSA supply division offers a number of Eagle Scout themed items Here’s a handsome Eagle Scout Hiking Stick Medallion Josten Jewelers and Joy Jewelers offer personalized Eagle Scout rings (hold on to your wallet!)...
