I have a question/request for the group. It seems that NO ONE from my district
is scheduled to attend training at Philmont this summer, so my District
Chairman has asked that I put together a 10-15 min. presentation on the
wonderful training opportunities available at Philmont Training Center. I
contacted Philmont, and they are sending me training information for next
summer and a catalog from their trading post. I want to *sell the sizzle* of
this place as well as the quality of the instruction. I am thinking I might
throw up some slides (if I can purchase slides from the trading post) of the
area and treat it like a vacation opportunity for the whole family while
talking about the great training provided. What I would like from the group is:
1. Any other ideas as far as presentation; materials, style, format, etc.
2. Any personal experiences of those who have attended training at Philmont;
testimonials, suggestions, cost, anecdotes, if I had it do over
again I would ...., etc.
3. Information in general. I have never been to Philmont and would appreciate
it if I could use y'all as my eyes and ears. Over the last few days I have seen
several good posts on Philmont and would appreciate any further information.
Responses should be sent to me privately unless you feel everyone could benefit
from the information. Thanks to everyone in advance for your insights.
