What I would like to see is something on THEIR page, a link or just text,
on each Council. If the Council itself has a page then National's page
should link to it.
And I think that so long as the page is exclusively Scouting-related
National *shouldn't* have a problem with copyright etc.
It seems tome that if Scouts could get on the Web and see what other
Scout troops are doing, some might be motivated to explore other
possibilities than their usual "It's June, this must be Gettysburg"
program plan. Sometimes I think lack of imagination is more the root of
repetition than lack of interest. I've been wrong before, though.

Theoretically, the name on the forwarded post should be useable. If any
of us kept it, of course. <G>
