I've been lurking for three weeks or so... Enjoy eveyone's contributions!
I am a scouter in Las Cruces, NM with Troop, Crew and Post 177. Have
been scoutmaster, asst. scoutmaster, and various merit badge counseler.
Am presently unit representative and Communications merit badge counceler
and member of troop committee.
I am one of those who didn't get very far as a scout (first-class). In
the 5 years I spent in scouting our troop had a scoutmaster for roughly 8
months of that time. So there wasn't much organization or empahsis on
advancement. We did do a lot of camping, however... probably why I stuck
it out. However, since college I've been active in scouting in various
leader roles and love it.
Highlight for the year, we're preparing to take a crew to Philmont this
summer. I've been with crews last two summers (our troop and another in
town) and am really looking forward to going back again this summer.
Nice to meet you all. I enjoy the list a lot!
