Rick, Don and Others:
The Order of the Arrow has an interesting program for college age
scout(er)s called ASK or Arrowmen Sharing Knowledge. When implemented
ASK groups would be available for anyone (SMs or District or ...) to
ASK for help. Say you have a young troup and need a couple of BSA
Lifeguards or a WSI ... just ASK. Say you need help on getting your
boy leaders to work together ...just ASK. Say you need a temp ASM to
provide that second required leader ... just - you get the idea.
I have seen the pgm on paper and it looks great. I just hope that the
2 major univ. in our lodge would get ASK units together.
