people post exactly what your ticket consisted of for the rest of us? I
would love to see what some of you extremely creative and energetic
people did to earn your beads. Maybe it will help some of us who are
planning on attending Wood Badge some ideas for our own tickets, and
maybe it will help sway some who are not planning on taking Wood Badge
to consider it. If it isn't a violation of Wood Badge secrecy rules, I'd
love to see some of your tickets, or maybe just the items you feel were
unique or particularly helpful.
For my ticket I and one of my assistant Scoutmasters that took the same
course are working on the Collonneh Lodge camping guidebook for the Sam
Houston Area Council Troops and Posts. This guide has not been updated
for a very long time and has taken an enormaous amount of time yo
assimilate the information. Be careful about your ticket and the time
that it takes to accomplish the item. You have two years from the end of
the class portion of the course to complete your ticket. While both of
us completed the rest of our ticket we are still working on the guide
and it will be about another month or two before we complete it.
Other itmes included my unit earning the National camping award,
Community service through the troop, troop leadership campouts quarterly
to let the adult leadership and the scout leadership get a better
understanding of what each is looking for in the program( This has been
a lot of help I think), being on district Boy scout Training Staff for
Scoutmaster Fundamentals, service to our council camp at strake, and
completeion of a flat water canoe course.
I would also be interested in seeing posts from other Wodbadgers on
