As Scouters, we’re supposed to be building men of good character, not just men of good camping ability.

Instead, we should look for opportunities at every meeting and on every outing to teach Scouting values.Scoutmaster’s minutes are an obvious...[More]

(Republished with permission from ScouterMom http://www.scoutermom.com/9699/toasted-chit-pressurized-fuel-training)Our council has a “Toasted Chit” training for pressurized fuel use.

So keep that in mind when reading.Adults in our council are required to attend Toasted Chit training every three years and it must be conducted by a council approved trainer.

Have you noticed in recent years how Presidents and presidential candidates often speak in front of a group of VIPs or firefighters or schoolchildren? Using people as a backdrop makes for good footage on the evening news and communicates subtly that the candidate has a lot of what he considers the right kind of supporters.Depending on the space you have available for an Eagle court of honor, you can achieve a similar effect.
