Hey Bruce...check out EAGLETIPS_TWO located on our archives. We've
had a discussion a while back and someone else asked that very same
question. There's a LOT of good ideas there...
BTW folks, I'm about 3/4th of the way finished with the NEW version of
EagleTips (I have to do SOMETHING while Jess is at work, because I
have to stay up to pick her up some nights!)...it was supposed to be
done back in May, remember? But, with everything going on around
here, it was placed on the back burner until this past weekend.
It will be available to be downloaded in about two weeks...there will
be a general announcement on it. Also, there's some nice "cover
pages" which will be uploaded since many of us took the information
and created our own "Eagletips Booklet" to share with others not so
fortunate as we are to be on here.
What's left? Well...I'm in the process of "paring it down", so that
(following many suggestions) each "chapter" is no more than 100K in
length (some of our mailers have problems "getting" documents larger
than that!) and also "spell checking" (I didn't want to do this, since
the original intent to express our opinions and feelings, but after
I've received several comments asking me to do so for the next
version, I'll try it. I also will place a disclaimer stating that
I've modified the postings only to correct spelling errors and NOT to
add or extract anything from the statements).
I think that, once you see this version, that you will really like
this one better than the current version. The Tips will be uploaded
ONLY in ASCII text, since the WordPerfect versions all had problems
leaving the site here last summer.
Finally, I got my copy of the Eagle Scout Association newsletter and
as I've indicated and as we've discussed, there are several changes
for the Eagle Scout Badge requirements which goes into effect in a
month or so. Besides the inclusion of the Family Life merit badge and
the statement on what consitutes "Scout Spirit", there's REVISED
requirements for the Citizenship in the World Merit Badge and several
others (including Computers, as we've discussed here). There's also a
new addition of the Boy Scout Requirements booklet, the 1993-95
version as well.
