Thanks much for getting back to me so quickly. Since there is no such thing
as a one way street in Scouting, please feel free to bounce any programme
ideas you may have for my reaction. I also have several years worth of
programme stuff cluttering up my memory and some still sitting in boxes after
my last move.
One thing I do need is the phone number of your Scout Office, so that I can
get them to post me a copy of the most recent Scouting equipment and resource
catalogue. That way I can get on the phone and abuse my plastic cash a bit to
update the Australian section of my resource library, as well as get some of
the other Scouts and Scouters around here interested in doing the same.
I should be able to come up with some Packs and Troops that might be
interested in forming sibling relations with their Australian counterparts,
if there are some in your area who would be interested in doing the same. I m
very much in favour of introducing the Scouts here to Scouting around the
world, since Americans seem to occasionally forget that there is life outside
their borders! The kids aren t really any different than kids are anywhere,
but the adults sometimes seem all to ready to think theirs is the only way to
I m afraid this is all I have time for tonight, since it s getting late. I
think posting this as a reply to your posting should give you my entire
E-mail address, country suffixes included. Crossing fingers... here goes...
Don t forget, I m ready to be used as a resource, if you are ever in the need
of different programme ideas.
