My name is Mike Barnard. I work in the Longhorn Council, Roadrunner District.
I have been in Scouting since I was 7 years old and all but a brief time of it
in the same district and council I grew up in. I am an Eagle Scout and have
found a real love for Philmont. I have taken 4 treks, 1 as a boy, and was able
to take a trek of 14 girls two years a go. That was going to be the only way
to ever get one of my kids to Philmont since I am the father of 6 girls from
16 to 1 year old.
My current involment in Scouting is; District Chairman, Assistant Scoutmaster
T-344, Post Advisor P-5, Wood Badge Scoutmaster Fall 1996, Council Training
for Venture/Varsity Program and Camp Specialist for the Region. Yes, I have a
hard time saying NO! But I really feel strong about Scouting and the impact it
has on the youth today.
My favorite topic right now is backpacking. I'm taking a crew of my troop's
boys to the Weminuche Wilderness area near Durango,CO this summer and then
another crew of girls to Philmont next summer. I'll get to take 2 of my oldest
girls to Philmont that year.
Thanks, I look forward to meet you all thru the NET!
