In the "for what it's worth department", we have a hammock-related
activity that we've repeated every 3 or 4 years: A friend who grew up
on the coast and knows how to make fishing nets comes and shows the boys
how to make their own. We get all the "needles" (or whatever they're
called, I'm afraid I always forget *everything* between visits) and cord
ready for his visit, then take a couple of meeting nights to learn and
practice the art. Amongst other things, this gives the boys a pride of
ownership (which is quite evident in the way they take care of them - a
heap less horseplay than when they have parent-store-bought-ones) and
smiles when they hear others comment about "the troop with the golden
hammocks" (gold colored cord is used).
