Hi Joe...welcome to the net!
I have sent you under a separate posting ALL of the items we have
discussed under that heading....if you did not get it or if it was
warbled, please let me know and I'll see what we can do to get it to
This is an EXCELLENT time to remind everyone of two major things...I am
sure that Jon Eidson, our listowner, will give us more guidance on this..
but, if you have to leave us for some reason (graduation, system outage,
whatever), PLEASE send a UNSUB command in a mail message to the LISTSERVER
(LISTSERV@TCUBVM.BITNET). All you have to place in the message is the
phrase UNSUB SCOUTS-L. Nothing else is needed. If you don't do this, your
local system administrator(s) will be mad at you and Jon and unsubscribe
you anyways....and some of them *might* be angry enought not to let you
resubscribe when you come back!!
This leads to the other thing...."But I'm going to miss all of the great
ideas and notes and news and stuff if I *don't* unsubscribe!" No you won't.
This list is archived each month, and you can send a command to the LISTSERVER
(NOT to the list itself) asking for entire months' worth of postings be
sent to you by return e-mail. Every posting, every comment, everything.
(make sure you have enough quota space to receive it on your end). In that way,
you can keep up with us over the summer and even get a few more ideas for the
coming new program year.
You can also retrieve postings from that same archive on anything we have
discussed here, either by topic, name of poster or dates. This is how you
can get copies of the items that we have cussed and discussed here.
To those of you that *have* to leave us, I wish that you have a safe,
productive, and enjoyable summer break; that you come to the US National
Scout Jamboree later this summer and to the BSA Annual Meeting in May; and
that in whatever you do with youth, in whatever program or capacity you serve
in, remember please that without YOUR involvement, those youth would find
other things to do--and many, many of those "other things" are dangerous,
esteem-reducing, and downright stupid. YOU are the keys and the instruments
of our youth's success as our next generation of leaders and citizens!!!
