In my earlier post today, I now realize that I should have said that the
Wood Badge Ticket is an AGREEMENT WITH YOURSELF as approved by your
coach/counselor to apply your Wood Badge Training to practical use in the
three areas mentioned: service to others, unit goals, and personal growth. I
apologize for any confusion caused by my earlier explanation.
I also learned today that you can become a "five-beader" by being the
director at Gilwell Park in the UK. I was also reminded that as a staffer,
the third bead is only temporary, unless you staff again within the next two
years, and complete your staff ticket.
I would highly encourage that every Boy Scout Leader take Wood Badge
Training. The best way to learn about Wood Badge is to experience Wood Badge
Training. No matter how much you have heard about it, or read about it, or
see postings on lists like Scouts-L, the best way to fully appreciate it and
understand it, is to EXPERIENCE WOOD BADGE TRAINING.
It was also suggested today that we should not spoil the Wood Badge
experience for non-Wood Badger's by discussing it too freely. I hope that I
have not done that in my postings. Nevertheless, I think it is important for
potential Wood Badge participants and others interested, to have enough
knowledge about the program to want to get involved further.
