Dear friends on Scouts-L....
During September my Webelos den (consisting of 10 boys) will be doing =
their communicator activity badge. Along with creating their own code =
book, visiting a radio station, and learning about Ham Radio (preparation =
for JOTA), I'll be introducing them to Electronic Mail.
Our first meeting on E-Mail will be Monday, September 12th. While reading =
mail addressed to me, or the generic roundtable discussions we have here, =
may be initially exciting, mail personally addressed to the boys would =
even be more enticing. What a surprise if when they log in they see a =
message with their name being the subject.
So here's my request. I've included the names of the boys in my dens. If =
some of you would select one or two names and send them a mail message I =
would be very much appreciative.
Logistics: In the Subject area enter the persons name you are addressing =
(e.g. TO: Kris Van Houten)
Send all mail to my private account, and NOT to Scouts-L:
address is: email@example.com
Subjects to discuss: We are a 1st year Webelos group. All but one of us =
went to a really neat
camp this year called Adventure Cove (on =
the Oregon Coast).
The Boys are going into the 4th grade.
All but one or two are currently playing =
on a soccer team.
This group is a very close group, all of =
them being on the same soccer,
baseball and basketball team (I'm their =
coach as well as den leader).
Boys name, interests and cub ranks earned:
>> Easton Ackers - (Camp, baseball, Wolf & Bear)
>> Brian Dalrymple - (Camp, baseball, Tiger, Wolf, & Bear)
>> Trevor Fox - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Wolf & =
>> Nick Hittner - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Wolf & =
>> Brady Olsen - (Camp, soccer, Wolf & Bear)
>> Andrew Seger - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Wolf & Bear)
>> Kris Van Houten - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Tiger, Wolf & =
>> Nick Verlinden - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Tiger, Wolf =
>> Bryan Voytilla - (Camp, baseball, soccer, basketball, Tiger, Wolf =
>> Travis Wesley - (Wolf & Bear)
If you have a den of Webelos Scouts that would like to exchange E-Mail, =
this would also be very fun, as we'll probably do this throughout the =
month of September at each of our Den Meetings.
International Scouts please send mail. The boys are excited about the =
December theme where we get to learn about 'Customs in other lands', and =
they want to know what scouts do in other countries.
Thank you all very much for your assistance in this project!
