I would like to renew my introduction as something has changed over
I'm an Assistent SeaScout Master since july this year. And I like
to be a leader.
But let me begin at the beginning.
I joined the local SeaScout troop when I was 12 years old/young. I
have been a SeaScout till I was 15 and some months when I became a
Sea Explorer (how do you call that?). This lasted six months when
the Explorers branch died of lack of members.
I left Scouting for a year and a half. And at my 18th I became a
Venture Scout, which I'm still are, together with my leadership.
And now I'm 20 years old.
Our group now constists of the following:
Cadettes 27 of them in the age of 8 to 11
Cubs 18 of them in the same ages
SeaScouts 21 of them in the age of 11 to 16
Venture Scouts 14 in the ages 17 to 25
An I have my doubts about the usefulnes of the 17 to 25 but it is
not in my power to change that.
I would like to get in contact with other SeaScout leaders in the
world via this newsgroup or email.
In the normal life I'm a full time student in Computer and
Information science, which I will be for the next two years.
Our computers range from antiques to modern workstations, but the
mail system, (a dial up UUCP link to the international gateway in
Amsterdam), runs at the most antique computer we have, (for experts:
a Gould Powernode PN9083) which had a major failure in the heat of the
Religion-discussion, so it was down for two days and I could not
answer (how frustrating).
So when mail to me bounces please do not think that my account is
closed but retry in a few days.
Thank you for reading,
