I'll try to keep this brief in the hope that you have many more
notes of appreciation to read.
Scouting is about kids (I was about to say boys but my cub pack is
coed and that is another well travelled thread)
Your list has broadened my horizons.. many new resources, ideas,
suggestions, and an excellent forum for the pros and cons of various
approaches to dealing with the kids, when they are good, or otherwise.
The dynamics of dealing with the other members of leadership teams is just
as important. Listening to different views, and having the good judgement to
accept criticism and constructive ideas, is reflected in the daily exchanges
seen on the list.
Many of the BSA procedures do not apply here in Canada due to differences in
the programs, but the international nature of the list sure does bring home
what all of us are endeavouring to do, help kids have fun and grow.
Your list is important to us all. Thanks for the opportunity to participate
