some background work before getting involved. It's NOT a reflection on your
work, nor on your organization or any other....we do the same things among

pet projects or special events that we are promoting as well. While we as
Scouters here are more willing to "stand out there on that branch", we do so
with a lot of fear.)

If you wouldn't mind, would you please post some general information about
the project here? A lot of us use this list as a reference for the many
wonderful thigns that can go on with our youth, and your project sounds like
something that, with more exposure, many more of our Scouting leaders and
those associated with other youth programs (even though the list is called
"Scouts-L", it is really a YOUTH PROGRAMS discussion group; we have a lot of
church-based, community-based and private groups reading and occasionally
posting here!) would like to get involved in.
Some of the posts here get "exported" to more than 25 Websites, so that those
traveling along the World Wide Web can also receive information.
Also, if you can place a email and voice phone number and please let us know
here of any changes to either, it would help out as well. Part of the
problem in keeping up with so many worthwhile efforts out there, is the fact
that sometimes email sites do change, and voice phone or fax numbers have to
change due to location move, increase or decrease in support, or other factors.
Thanks for bringing your efforts to our collective attention, and thanks for
your hard work. I am sure that there are kids out there that have
appreciated your long efforts in getting this to work as well as being able
to "shrink the world" down to one child talking with one child.
