Hi Sue and everyone!
Thanks to a combined effort of our listowner, Jon Eidson, and to those
that did what I did and kept copies of our discussions on the Eagle
Scout process, starting this evening, I will be posting both to the
list as a whole and to Jon in particular the set of files called
The entire purpose of this short project was to answer Sue's questions
about questions to ask and things to know during the Eagle Scout Board
of Review. However, as I got into things, I realized that there was
a lot more information that we all discussed about this that could be
useful to unit leaders and district/council Eagle Boards of Review
members and committee members. Therefore, I've placed them in as
logical a grouping as I could.
Each EAGLETIP will be numbered (starting with EAGLETP1) and given a
subject so that you can collect and archive them (and add to them as
time goes onward). I don't have a listing of what each number will
cover as I am posting them as soon as I finished editiing it and
uploading it to the system here.
Several of them are extremely long, so I apologize in advance as well
as forwarning those that receive mail each day that this is coming.
One of the things I am "missing" however, is my description of what
happens at the National level when those applications are received. If
anyone has a copy of that posting, it would surely be appreciated
because otherwise, I will have to go back into our archives and find
Again, Sue, you brought up a great topic and I'm sorry that we could
not all help you beforehand; but you indicated that you have another
Eagle Board coming up soon, and I'm sure that there are others out
there that could benefit from our collective and in particular Chris
Haggerty's long experience and many postings on this topic. I single
Chris out from the thirty or so other people that posted advice and
information on this topic because his postings were full of detail,
"real-life" applications of the policies, and even included the text
of the training course he teaches to other Scouters.
Many thanks to all that posted there...and a final reminder: the
success of this list is a group effort. While there may be people here
with a wealth of personal (and sometimes) professional knowledge, we
all learn from EVERY POSTING PLACED HERE, no matter the experience or
background. If you are shy about posting because you feel that "you
don't know as much as those others do", please post anyways. It was
only a short time ago that *I* was one of those that felt awkward
about posting because in reading it, I saw people that really know
But as I tell new people all of the time, the only requirement for
posting or even suscribing, is a CARE and CONCERN for YOUTH. And isn't
what this list is really all about???
Keep those postings coming, gang!!!
