Well, I guess it's about time I posted my introduction to the list. I
have been receiving this list for about two weeks now and my drive's,
file cabinets, binder's are filling fast with wonderful information.
My name is David sanchez and I am a Wolf den leader for pack 265 in
San Jose, California. We are a second year pack with about 30 kids,
and still growing ! This is my first year, ever, as a leader in scouting
and it has been great. So far I have attended Basic Leader Training,
POW WOW, and a number of district roundtables. Very interested in
attending Cubscout Woodbadge, so if anyone can help with some
information I would appreciate it. I have also had the privilege of
being chairman for our recruitment night and the pinewood derby for
our pack. I have also discovered that I really enjoy putting on
elaborate ceremonies for our boys achieving rank advancements, I
realized this while laying on my back, in a tent, on the cafeteria
floor. Some history...... as a boy, I was in Cubscouts for, what I
can recall, two years. I do have my old wolf patch but no bear.
We then moved on along to Y-Indian guides. Stayed with them for a few
more years. I don't remember when we left Indian guides but .......
we did. When I was a young teen I went with a neighbor friend to
Royal Rangers. Stayed with them for another few years. I have fond
memories of all these organizations and experiences so when the
time came that my son was of age to participate in scouting, I jumped
in feet first. Actually, when my son was born I bought the uniform
and hid it in the closet for 7 years .... hee hee.
So here I am now, Den Leader with Cub Master in my sites, we're losing
ours next year and he has asked me if I'd be interested. Hmmmmmm.....
Thank you to everyone in Scouting. I am very proud to a part of such a
