When it comes to advancement in the Boy Scouts, it’s not really rocket science.  First, the Scout needs to want to advance.  Second the Scout needs to do the work.  And finally, the Scout needs to be tested. This process can be easy for some Scouts while harder for others, but what I have learned in 10 years as a Scoutmaster is that it is all up to the Scout.  I have seen Troops in our area that place more value on advancement than in other methods and I have seen some that do not at all.  I think that we...

Some kid! Life Scout uses goats to help clear poison ivy
Blog     30 Sep 2014 | 2:41 pm
Those of us in Scouting see poison ivy as a campout-ruining nuisance. Goats, as it turns out, see it as a delicious treat. Gavin Burseth, a 16-year-old from Bartlett, Ill., is training the animals to help clear poison ivy from campgrounds at the Blackwell Forest Preserve, about 30 miles west of Chicago. Why goats instead of machines or chemicals? “Goats are cheaper. They’re more eco-friendly. Generally they eat all day,” Gavin told the Chicago Tribune. “And poison ivy doesn’t affect them like it does people.” Gavin, still a few steps shy of the Eagle Scout Award, is closing in on another rare BSA honor: the William T. Hornaday Award, which many call “an Olympic medal bestowed...

TIME TO GET SOME CLOTH LISTED I have been focusing my own efforts the last few days on getting some fresh listings up on eBay. Monday I launched about 150 new OA flaps up on my store at fixed price. Many of these were old clothback pre-fdl issues. I've also launched a round of 80+ auctions including a lot of Philmont and World Jamboree issues. I know a dealer in the hobby that is looking to move most of his trade-o-ree stock in one big deal to scale back a bit. If you are in the market for making a five figure...
