A short while back I sent a posting to the list regarding S & W Crafts.
Chatted by phone today with Ray Kathol <SWCrafts@AOL.COM> regarding his
postings to the list. From what I can tell I only received a portion of
his first posting and did not receive his second posting at all. Ray
indicates that he followed up the first with a second to correct a gap in
his first message. I only recieved the paragraph regarding the pinewood
derby car and his signature block.
Now that I know that Ray was trying to make a number of resources
available to help Cubs/Webelos as opposed to outright advertising, I can
say in retrospect I probably wouldn't have been as vehement in my
responsive posting. Ray BTW has also agreed that to avoid confusion with
BSA advertising to indicate that his cars are based on the original 1955
design as opposed to being the "original" and to note that it is not the
official kit. He also advises that he does ask customers who are Cub
Scouters to check with their local Councils and Districts for rules on
construction. From the sounds of what he has to offer, his kits; e.g.
birdhouses and the like, probably would be useful to many Cub Scout units.
I can also say from the chat that I was impressed with Ray's desire to be
of help to Scouts and other youth organizations.
