Hey Wacky Scouters, I think it's time to try another challenge. Just like the last one a few weeks ago, feel free to tweak this to fit your group's needs. Maybe it's a senior scout or the scoutmaster instead of a committee member, for example.

 

1. The entire Patrol may speak.

2. Take your Patrol to the Troop Committee table.

3. The judge will place a Scout hat on the Staff table, then sit, at that table, with

his back to you.

4. Your Patrol is to sneak up and get the Scout hat. If the judge hears and points

at any Patrol member, the Patrol must start over.

5. The Patrol is to get the Scout hat and place it on the judge's head. You

have 5 minutes to complete the task.

 

Afterward, maybe reflect on the challenge and ask questions like: Did you have fun? What did you learn? What different ways can you think of to accomplish the task?

 

If you appreciate all our hard work, you could say thanks by signing up for  patreon.com/insanescouter we have options between $1.50 and $6.00 a month.

The Scouting community has shown remarkable resilience through this pandemic: units have continued providing vital, socially distant community service, volunteers have facilitated merit badge classes online and outdoors, and thousands of young people have even attained the rank of Eagle Scout. But it certainly has not been easy. And as we rightfully celebrate the initial distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, and perhaps the beginning of the end of this pandemic, it’s important to remember that we must remain vigilant in our daily efforts to combat this deadly disease. We each have the responsibility—as members of the Boy Scouts of America and ......
 
 


With more than 50, 000 Eagle Scout service projects completed every year, chances are good that you walk, bike or drive past one every day without even knowing it. “If you aren’t actively seeking out Eagle projects, they are easy to overlook because they fit in so well in the environment, ” says Eagle Scout Sarina Horner, a member of Troop 729 of Winston-Salem, N.C. “It’s also hard to know about the service-oriented projects because you can’t physically see them.” Wanting to bring more attention to this hard work, Sarina created an Eagle Scout geocaching trail that links together 14 ......

During this protracted pandemic, we’ve all spent a lot of time staring at screens instead of interacting with others. It’s a necessary evil that concerns Ava Van Straten — and not just because she loves spending time outside with friends. This Lone Scout from De Pere, Wis. (Bay-Lakes Council), is worried about the effects of all these screens on the development of empathy in children. When children interact together, face to face, they learn how to recognize feelings in others and share what’s inside their own heads. But when they can’t be together, they can’t practice this skill. “We learn ......
 
 


Is there a special outdoor place that you love? A place you can go to connect with nature, or to escape the hustle of everyday life? Maybe it’s a park down the street, a community garden, or maybe just an empty lot with birds and trees that you walk past on your way to work or school. These spaces, however big or small, are important for your mental health and well being, and for the plants and animals that live in the area. We want to help make sure these spaces remain cared for. Here are 3 ways you can ......

Source: https://www.spreaker.com/user/santeeswapper/92-public-edited-by-jason-with-extra-pie A decade ago Bill Chadek took a gamble on a Boy Scout pocket knife.  He cleaned up a beat up old knife and brought it back to life with elbow grease, sandpaper, and lots of polishing.  This was the beginning of a side business refurbishing vintage BSA pocket knives, sheath knives and hand axes. Today his completed projects sell at auction for as much as $400 on eBay.  Over the last decade of honing his craft Bill has experimented with different woods, learned how to forge a much improved leather sheath, and mastered polishing metal.
