Subject: Expensive Wood Badge fee?
I was also honored to be asked to attend WB training this year, I was asked by
our Council Training Commish and it wasn't the blanket invite, it seemed
The money was not the problem, I think it was $140.00. The problem is getting
the time to attend. With taking 6 vacation days for summer camp, several
afternoons for fund raising at the Saratoga Race track picking up empty cans
and bottles, I simply don't have the time! Meaning the leave credits to use. I
(We) all also have to spend time with our families and time on the job. Also
got to keep the old handicap in the single digits, Golf MB Counselor ya know!
Seriously, sometimes the demands on our time are overwhelming. We each do as
much as we can. I would love to go to WB, but just can't swing it time wise.
I've found that to have the time to do the job is precious than having the
resources, either $$wise or otherwise.
Just my $.02 (or 2 minutes), FWIW
