Interesting that Transatlantic Council is the largest
geographically! I wonder how it rates for number of Scouts
as a percentage of the available youth. As far as I know, there
are no direct competitors to Scouting, like 4H or boys' clubs.
Our only recruitment hassle appears to be sports teams (football,
baseball, basketball and American football) who practice on weeknights
and play competition matches at weekends.
However, Mike, I suspect the folk at TAC will be slightly surprised
to learn that parts of southeast Asia come under their domain.
The council patch says Europe, North Africa and Near East -
and our permanent "temporary" patch shows the area stretching
as far as Turkey, in southWEST Asia.
It's an easy mistake to make. Even during Desert Storm, the
American Forces Network announcers kept getting the two mixed up.
Memories of another conflict seem to die hard.

When we got our new Jewish Scout week before last, our first thought
was to see the Jewish Chaplain. But the Chaplain at Mark Twain Village
moved away recently and we didn't know if his successor had arrived yet.
Guess whose son has just joined our Troop....
