Jim sleezer....asked me:
>> I was surprised to see that you have sections for both Cub Scouts and
>> Boy Scouts in your PowWow Potlatch book. Around here, PowWow is
>> strictly Cub Scouts. Is Potlatch a similar event for Scouts--what we
>> might call Show 'N' Do?
Jim -- First of all, I apologize for not getting back ASAP. I did one of
those crazy things we leaders do....took 36 Webelos boys to camp. And
was it great....words can never tell how great it was.
Anyway, to keep this short....Potlatch in CPC is a spin-off of what most
councils do as a 'Show N Do'. What we found was that there were several
classes that may apply to both the Cub and Boy Scout leader, especially
the Webelos leader. Thus we came up with the combined event. Last
year we had a 75/25 ratio of Cub/Boy Scout Leaders. This year I'm
hoping that we'll increase that to more of a 60/40 ratio.
Take care and keep on scoutin'
