For example, slick (and easily produced) slideshows do a great job of chronicling the journey new Eagle Scouts have taken since their Cub Scout days.But you might want to include other pictures in your ceremonies or printed programs, such as photos of bald eagles or American flags. Where can you find such photos? A great place to start...[More]

This week, for an upcoming Eagle Scout Magazine article, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mohammed Al-Jumaili, who is apparently the first refugee of the Iraq War to become an Eagle Scout. I also talked with his Scoutmaster, Steve Bauer. Mohammed has a unique story, but Steve told me something that contains a bit of truth for all of us who are longtime Scout leaders. He said that on one of Mohammed’s early camping...[More]

Todays post comes to us courtesy of the Ted Talks. It is about how we think about charity and "The O Word". The talk is done by activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta who calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start...[More]

Whatever happens, the best thing you can do is go with the flow.James Shepherd figured that out before his son’s court of honor and talked to his son about it. James...[More]

I would like to personally thank him for allowing us to republish his "Wood Tools" document. SAWS “Leave ‘em Home/Limited Use”Here, I group these classifications together because there is little distinction between them.

A Scoutmaster emailed me with a question the other day. On an outing he couldn’t attend, his Scouts played several games like Indian leg wrestling, after which the assistant Scoutmaster in charge allowed the Scouts to engage in “plain old wrestling.” His question was whether this activity should have been allowed. (I assume the style was more Greco-Roman than WWF!)How would you answer that question—other than making up an answer, of course?Your first stop should...[More]
