Alumni Relations
Blog     18 Sep 2014 | 12:45 pm
Did you have a family reunion this summer? What about your Scouting family?When a scout finishes his time with a troop, that is all too often the end of his Scouting experience. He's off to college or work, and no longer has time for Scouting. And, no one ever tells him he's still welcome to come back and visit.Troops usually put effort into recruiting boys, and then effort into keeping them involved until they turn 18. After a scout ages out, or makes the earlier decision to stop participating, that is often the end of the troop's effort with that...

Flap your wings!
Blog     18 Sep 2014 | 10:55 am
A Scout unit can be compared to a bird in flight. A healthy bird flies high, soaring with wings open and catching updrafts and downdrafts. It might dip a bit here and there, but it catches another thermal and continues to soar. A newborn bird flaps its tiny wings mightily, desperately trying to catch air. […]...

Canoeing at Greenbush Lake, BC
Blog     18 Sep 2014 | 10:26 am
One of the amazing things about British Columbia is that you can head out to backcountry lakes on long weekends and have epic family adventures without seeing another soul. Our recent trip to Greenbush lake was an awesome example of this. Greenbush Lake Protected Area lies east of Vernon and about an hour north of Cherryville. You have to pass by the very popular "Sugar Lake" for about an hour until you come to a road on the right noted by an overgrown, painted sign. The road is lined with Thimbleberry bushes and takes you to a couple forest service campsites and...

Jeff’s Scouting Blog
Blog     18 Sep 2014 | 9:04 am
I recently learned of a new Scouting blog authored by Jeff Freeman: So I’ve thought about a blog for a long time.  Either as a representative of my pack, or now of the troop I’m in.  Or even for my daughters Daisies. I’ve dabbled with twitter, but never kept at it posting.  But with a blog I can share more things I think.  So let’s mix them all together.  Just about every day, a little bit of Scouting in one fashion or another goes on.  So let’s share some of it with the world. As the story unfolds we learn: There’s three kids running around our...

‘What Does the Fox Say?’ duo back with song about the trucker’s hitch
Blog     18 Sep 2014 | 8:18 am
They’ve told us what the fox says, and now the Norwegian duo Ylvis is back with a video Scouters and Scouts should enjoy. It’s about the trucker’s hitch, a knot useful for tightening up tarp lines, securing loads or making bundles. The problem is the guys can’t seem to tie it. They’ve got the square knot, the clove hitch and the “double-shoelace bow” down fine. But the trucker’s hitch gives them fits. Watch the video below to see whether they figure it out, and see one Scouter’s helpful infographic with easy instructions on how to properly tie the knot. Here’s the video And here’s how to tie...
