The week of August 10-16, I attended Cub Trainer Woodbadge. Thanks to all
who encouraged me to make this trip in spite of some health problems. I did
have an all time record for swollen ankles and feet. It made it extremely
difficult to get around towards the end of the week, *BUT* I would not have
missed it for anything!
I am an Eagle. This will prove interesting since as a female cubmaster, all
the younger boys want to know if I am an Eagle. Unfortunately, they're
too young to know about Woodbadge and while it would be entertaining, I don't
want to get them confused or detract from the Eagle Scout award!
Our den got off to a slow start, but made a strong finish! We put on the
campfire program. It was the first time Dave got to put one together, it
was the first time that Susan did an opening for a campfire. It was the
first time Willy got to participate in a skit. The next day we made a
presentation to the den that stayed and put out the campfire for us. It
was the first time that Mary Anne got to do a recognition. It was made
more special by the fact that we gave ashes from our campfire and one of
men in the den that helped was so touched that he cried! He asked us for
permission to put them in a Girl Scout Council campfire. Boy, do we feel
I was completely overwhelmed by the dedication of the staff! If I ever
feel like I'm doing more than my share, I will stop and think of this staff!
Their giving of their time to make it a great course, and devoting the next
two years (in some cases) to help us complete our tickets...what can you
say? It just is mind-boggling.
Well, I better get back to work on those tickets!
