It seemed like such a simple question as to which Knot I was in the
process of earning. I am concerned with the amount of mis-information
that is out there. I don't think that it would be so hard for the
people on the National level to correct problems that surface on
subjects like Knots and all the posts lately on the Religious Knots.
So much time has been spent on the boy awards (as it should, as this
is the BOY scouts) that the adult awards have kind of taken a back
seat. The problem is that we can't have a strong boy program without
the adult leaders to guide them. We have one adult in our council
that must be working on his 12th knot and the colors on his chest
make him look like a mexican general. Most leaders are those that are
in for 2 to 4 years and disappear, but some of us are scouts for life
and the knots become important to us. Somebody up top might want to
take a look at all the problems us experianced leaders are having on
the subject and help out a little.
While I have your ear, Has anybody started teaching the new and
improved Cub Basic training course? How they (the Van Patten Family)
expect us on the training team to teach everything you ever wanted to
know about being a cub leader of about 12 hours in 4 hours is crazy.
It was hard enough to teach in the 8 hour format. What gives?
My last request for information on Knots was so well received
that this cub basic question should really raise some eyebrows. I
hope to find out tonight at my cub roundtable what our DE's know
about Knots and the like. Only 4 weeks on the i-net and I am already in
