Hello to everyone on the Scouts-L,
I am new to this world of internet and just learning how to get around the
system. If it wasn't for a good friend, Olen Watkins, I would not have learned
about this area.
I have been with both the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts for a long time. I grew
up in scouts, my son is very active in scouts as is my daughter in girl
scouts(she would like to get to know some Boy Scouts:)-).
I am very interested in the outdoor programs for both groups. My main interest
is Orienteerning. Here in Texas, we were able to produce a "TRUE" orienteering
map,(5 colors, with a scale of 1:10000).
The sport of orienteering in Europe is very big, however I have found that here
in the states, it is a sport that is not very will received. I am located in
Fort Worth, Texas and the Council is the "Longhorn Council".
I would be very interested in talking to anyone involded in orienteering and a
success stories, along with problems with a true orienteering projects.
I can give you hours on the problems and heartaches with trying to develop an
Looking forward to hearing from everyone.
Yours in Scouting
