Hello, my name is Bill O'Connell and I'm leaving Scouts-L so I can work at a
Boy Scout Camp. I wrote in my other message, but I want to make sure everyone
Has I read in many of the E-Mail messages, I see a lot of "stupid" material on
it. I think some have lost that notion what Scouting is! As you go to your
Packs, Troops, Posts, etc, remember what we are here for - not too look good,
not for reconition, but for THE BOYS. The boys are the NUMBER ONE reason we
should be in Scouting. If you are putting anything else above them, GET OUT OF
SCOUTING NOW! The BOYS are what makes Scouting so successful. Lets have fun
with the Boys and let them learn from us and also let us learn from them. Next
time you write on Scouts-L, ask yourself is this really necessary! Uniforms -
How can we put our money and worries about uniforms when we should be asking
about our BOYS - we are not in the military. Any many other debatable issues
that puts the BOYS last.
Lets make Scouting "KIS MIF" - Keep it SIMPLE!!! Make it FUN! If you run
your Troop as the government runs themselves (always complaining or arguing
over 'stupid' issues), then you better change.
EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT SUMMER and talk to you next Fall.
