Several threads in one (is this called multi-tasking or what ;)
Sarah, Grant, and others I'm sure, have always been extremely good about
sharing information on there side of the ocean. Both these people responded
to my request for pen pals for my Webelos (who later changed their minds :)
I enjoy reading there posts greatly, as I'm sure everyone does. Mike is a
wonderful resource too. One of the things I most enjoy about this list is
the wide range of topics that we hit.
As for hazing, I know my son would not take well to any sort of it. I will
warn him before summer camp about some of the "traditions" I have read here.
At our Crossover this past weekend, a bear neckerchief was turned in to lost
and found (me). When I showed it at the assembly and the boy stepped forward,
several adults told me to make him sing. I calmly stated that would not
happen as long as I was Cubmaster, *UNLESS* they wanted to hear me sing.
They respectfully declined...great to be known as a terrible singer, but LOUD!
As far as the Scoutmaster blowing away the snake. It is unfortunate that it
made the news, but sometimes we do what we think is right for the moment.
At my son's first family camping event (at Crossover) we had a LARGE snake
that kept coming back into camp. Finally one of the adults killed it. We
later found out another snake was under a tent, which is where the first
snake kept going.
I told this at Cub Roundtable, and was chewed out for letting the adults kill
the snake. I calmly told the breakout leader I was in charge of Nature at
Day camp, and all snakes were safe.....*I* would be directly opposite of where
