Even our District leaders were unaware of these awards. What was even funnier
according to the Cubmaster who saw them was that someone had already
purchased the Mathematics belt loop! Guess there are Packs that want to
"Be Prepared" when the new awards hit the system. :-) Is it possible to
qualify for them before they are announced or can work toward them only be
credited after the "offical" release date?
As an aside, I mentioned SCOUTS-L at our Rountable and was asked how
to subscribe. Many were familiar with rec.scouting but unware of this
list. I gave them my e-mail address and said I would e-mail the Intro
document to them as soon as they sent me a message. Now if I could just
get our DE, District Commissioner, District Chair and the Council Exec onto
the list .....
