The Value of time
Blog     24 Feb 2015 | 9:10 pm
One of the most frequent excuses I hear from Scouters is that they do not have enough time. Time for family, work, sports, scouting, hobbies, church, volunteering, etc. There’s just not enough time. Well folks, there is plenty of time.. in fact no matter how you slice it, time never changes. There are 24 hours in a day, 168 hours a week, about 672 hours in a month etc.. etc.. Time is constant and extremely valuable. Because there are only 24 precious hours in a day and typically 6 to 8 of them are chewed up in sleep we need to...

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter February 24, 2015
Blog     24 Feb 2015 | 7:03 pm
The snow is falling in my corner of North Carolina and the kids are home from school (again) so it's a good day to work on patches. I've been working on two boxes of camp patches that I hope to have ready tonight to get up on eBay as a fixed priced listing. Last week I posted my needs in the Tuesday newsletter. That did generate some leads but it also confirmed what I suspected - that my needs are pretty tough! I've got just one patch that I am going to highlight in a block below that would make me...

The 2015 FOS Patch
Blog     24 Feb 2015 | 12:51 pm
It is that time of year. Units in the Central Minnesota Council are being visited by council representatives for the annual Friends Of Scouting (FOS) campaign. Families are being asked to contribute what they can to the council to assist in providing a quality program for the boys. Like many councils, the Central Minnesota Council offers gifts for donors who meet certain levels of financial support. For many years they offered a framed Norman Rockwell Scouting print as an upper level gift. I am proud to say that a wall in my home office is covered with these prints collected over...

Building Resilience, 7 Cs and Scouting
Blog     24 Feb 2015 | 9:05 am
An author was being interviewed on the radio in the background as I was working away at my desk. He was discussing building resilience in young people. As I listened I thought “Hey! Who is this guy? This sounds a lot like Scouting!” This got me thinking about the big ideas that form the foundations of the Scouting method +and a specific instance of what I suppose you’d call “spontaneous inspiration”. In 1907 Baden-Powell took the first Scouts camping on Brownsea Island and Italian Physician Maria Montessori opened her first Casa dei Bambini in Rome. While their efforts were directed at different age groups they were independently inspired by similar ideas and methods. Montessori...
