________________________________________ Hi Andy, Our Troop has a board of review process that operates very smoothly and places a high priority on making sure the content and discussion is beneficial to our Scouts and assists them along their advancement path. While at a recent campout, two of our newer Scouts completed their requirements for Tenderfoot rank. Our Scoutmaster was delighted that they’d accomplished this and had a conference with each of them right there at the campout. Since I serve as chair of our troop’s boards of review and was also there at the campout, our Scoutmaster asked if we could do these...

Holiday Meeting Ideas for Cub Scouts
Blog     5 Dec 2017 | 11:57 am
Todd sent in these ideas for your meetings this time of year. Thanks Todd! Our Pack 1155 Holiday meeting usually includes some traditions others may like: We encourage having fun while doing a good turn during this season. We ask families to bring new white socks, un-packaged and rolled into pairs. They serve as a pretend snow ball fight during the meeting (an annual favorite!), and become donations for the community afterwards. Another fun one, is wrap-your-den-leader competition with paper, tape and bows. This year, we’re trying a new competition in lieu of that one. We’re wrapping PWD cars, in appropriate quantities...

Good Bye, My Uncle, Mr. Scoutmaster
Blog     5 Dec 2017 | 10:00 am
My brother and I were Boy Scouts for three and a half years in the mid 1970’s. My youngest brother was a Cub Scout. My mother was a den leader, and my father was a troop committee member. Scouting was strong in my family, but not quite as strong as it was in one of my cousin’s family. Jim Ehlert, my uncle, had five sons. All five sons were involved in the Scouting program. Jim became a scoutmaster when his oldest son was a Boy Scout. Jim held that position for a number of years as all the boys grew threw...
