At CS-19-96, conducted by the Northwest Illinois Council, there were
(among 42 finishing participants) 5 females, one of whom was in my patrol
(Eagles Soar!, or alternatively, Eagles Sore!),
and two others who are well known to me as Assistant Cubmasters in Pack 69
and Assistant Scoutmasters in Troop 8, Des Plaines Valley Council. There were
3 women on staff.

My Scout Executive's name is properly spelled Irene Szinavel (no negative
criticism intended: I had to look it up myself, and I talk to the woman
at least once every 2 or 3 weeks).
And let me tell you, things have been hopping at DPVC ever since she came
