In the couple of years that I've have been on the list, I have gathered
enough information and help to have filled 5 Woods Wisdoms. This of course
could not have been possible without your dedication and perseverance to
this list. I can only imagine the time and effort you have put forth to
this list and others that have spun off from it (Arrow-l -> Brotherhood and
Vigil) and who knows what others things you've been involved with.
Many times I have gone back to the Troop's Committee or PLC with information
retrieved from this list. It's not clear whether that information could have
been achieved via another vehicle, that isn't the point. All of us here on
this list have come together many times on issues and provided much information
to those in asking.
I have readied myself and others for an Adirondack Canoe Trek, Sea Base
Adventures, and Philmont... Without the help and wise advice by those on
this list, many of us would be struggling to make a Scouting program
better for the Kids involved. We have spanned the world in Scouting via
this vehicle, we have spanned the gender field of scouting with this
vehicle, and we have made numerous friends. I have a list of people I've
communicated with and continue to communicate with through this list.
I have traded with people from around the world through this list, I have
traveled to many places (Internet wise) because of this list. My list of
Scouting URL's is long, with each of these places providing many ideas
and resources. I have given a few Sermons on Scout Sunday through phrases
and thoughts from this list...
My jobs within Scouting have been enhanced because of this list and my
ability to provide ideas and information to my council's many mtgs and
committees has all stemmed from this list... If not for this, I would have
had to rely on local help, local scouters and quite possibly limited
So in closing this msg to you, I am sure you will have heard it many many
times through this effort to appreciate your work, but thanks! It's a
simple phrase, but carries so much meaning within it.
