Chris Haggerty, Sierra Vista, Arizona (CHAGGERTY@ARIZBPA.BITNET)

I'm back. In case you have not noticed I have been off the list
since some time last November. The move to Sierra Vista and the
calls to Tucson did it to me. Actually it was the calls, over $100
a month on the phone bill. Did you know I can call Los Angeles for
less money than Tucson, the phone companies have things really
messed up! I have found a way to get to my Account at the
University of Arizona using a TCP/IP connection here in Sierra
Vista. The connection is a local call. This means you will have
to put up with me again (and my long winded comments).
For those who are new to the list, an introduction.
I am Chris Haggerty, I live in Sierra Vista, Arizona. I first
started participating on SCOUTS-L back in 1989 or early 1990 (I
believe), during the early days. At the time I was a graduate
student at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I have over 25
years of scouting history behind me. I am the holder of the Arrow
of Light, Eagle Scout Award, Vigil honor, Woodbadge, and District
Award of Merit (among other things). My two sons both reached
Eagle. I have held many troop and district positions. My favorite
positions were Order of the Arrow Advisor, District Advancement
Chairman and Assistant Scoutmaster. I am like Commander Riker on
Star Trek the Next Generation - I enjoy being the second in charge
and taking charge now and then, but I do not want the top job. (I
have never held it so far.) I am able to approach the scouts a
little different than if I had held the Scoutmaster position.
Right now I hold none of these positions.
After my move from Tucson to Sierra Vista and back surgery which
I had a year ago, I decided I was going to take it easy for a
while. Since both boys are grown up I no longer participate with
a troop. But I am helping a local troop which needed help getting
it's committee going (it had no committee six months ago). Sort
of doing the commissioner's job, but more hands on. I am also on
the District Activities committee and District Advancement
committee. My last actual position is associate advisor in the
Order of the Arrow for Unit Elections and Activities. Some slowing down,
I am looking forward to once again participating on Scouts-L and
greetings to everyone.
