You've reached the right source.....in this order, try these sources:
1) your District. Besides your DE, there are many other volunteers that
have the "originals" or copies of the Scouting training or leadership tapes
they you're looking for. Try your District training chair, your Scout
Roundtable chair, your District Commissioner or a member of his or her staff.
Ever ask one of your neighboring units?? The larger units sometimes have
libraries of those tapes ready to be used??
2) your local Council office. Yeah, yeah, they might require you to give
a pint of blood or empty out your wallet (go there with a empty wallet like
I do..hehehe NOT!), but they do have ALL (or should have ALL) of the tapes
available for your use.
3) your library. Yes, your local library. Many local libraries asked for the
training tapes as part of their community service obligations. Check with
whomever handles mediaproducts for your local library. Even if they don't
have it, it does have a ISBN number (is that the right abbreivation, Jeanie
and Mary Lee??) so it can be borrowed as an "interlibrary loan".
4) neighboring Councils. Since the tapes can be copied and mailed, if your
Council don't have what you'll looking for, call a neighboring Council and
ask them. Most Councils would be glad to send you a tape (and make a copy
for your OWN Council...they would be grateful as well!).
5) National Audiovisiual Division, BSA at the national office. Yes, you will
have to pay for them, but they'll be yours!
(and if all of that fails, send me mail and I'll see what I can pull off the
shelves from this place!)
Hope that helps out!
