I just subcribed to the Scouts-L list server and read where all new members
are asked to write a short letter of introduction. Therefore ...
I'm Ron Raab-Long, from Magnolia, Delaware. We are part of the DelMarVa
Council, Two Bays District. The Council is comprised of the entire
DelMarVa peninsula, made up from the entire state of Delaware and the Eastern
Shores of Maryland and Virginia. Our District gets its name from spanning the
peninsula from the Delaware Bay to the Chesapeake Bay.
I have about ten years as a leader in the Scouting program. I came up
through the Cub Scout ranks in Pack 650, serving as Den Leader, Webelos
Leader, Asst. Cubmaster, then Cubmaster.
In Boy Scouting I have served as Assistant Scoutmaster, Advancement
Chairman, and I'm now Committee Chairman for Troop 903.
I used to be Bobwhite. (NE-IV-35)
I also serve on the District Committee (At-Large), where I chair the
District Recognition Dinner, have chaired the Cub Scout Mall Show, and
serve as the District Boy Scout Leader Training Coordinator. I have
been a staff member for the Pow-Wow, BS Basic & Outdoor Training,
By trade I'm a Computer Systems Administrator for a multi-site company in Dover,
Delaware. I perform all computer related work for our branches in Delaware and
Maryland. I am also involved in the Odyssey of the Mind program here in
Delaware, serving as the Problem Captain for Problem #5.
I'm married with two kids (one of each). My Son is a Life Scout. My
Daughter spent several years in GSs, but left as a cadet.
And boy am I long-winded. Sorry, I'll try better next time.
I used to be Bobwhite... That couldn't sing a lick!
