________________________________________ Dear Andy, Does a troop have to accept any boy who wants to join? (Name & Council Withheld) “Have to” is an interesting way to phrase your question, so let me ask… What’s the situation that’s prompting the question? In other words, what’s “the question behind the question”? It’s prompted by a current decision to remove a Scout for failure to follow the Scout Law (mainly “trustworthy”) repeatedly and in harmful ways despite two major rounds of counseling and constant guidance. My thought was, if we can see a train wreck coming, do we have to keep the track open? (I would almost...

Sandmarc Metal Edition Telescoping Pole for GoPro Cameras
Blog     23 Feb 2015 | 7:55 am
 by Dave P.   The Sandmarc telescoping pole is a simple piece of equipment.  It has one purpose in life.  It functions as an extension of your arm to get your GoPro camera farther away from you. Lately, these extension poles are also being referred to as selfie sticks.  While that term may sound negative, there are times when nothing will help you to take as good a picture or video – unless you happen to have your own photographer/videographer to follow you around.   Think about the times you’ve used your phone to take a selfie with your friends. Unless you happen to be...

B.P.’s Blog – What is Scouting?
Blog     22 Feb 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. What is Scouting? Not one in a hundred of our own people knows this. Scouting is not a thing that can be taught by wording it in public speeches, nor by defining it in print. Its successful application depends entirely on the grasp of the Scout spirit by both trainer and trainee. What this spirit is can only be understood by outsiders when...
