Hello. My name is Bill Chin. I am 18 years old, and now in that grey area
age of scouting! : ) I'd like to share a little story before I get into the
usual biographical part of the introduction.
I was camping this weekend and an adult from a different troop mentioned that
he made copies of a message I posted here about a year ago and handed them out
to the scouts in his troop. The message was about how boy scouts is not the
coolest thing to do when you're in school, and how I didn't let the peer
pressure from other students get to me. The entire message is/was posted at:
http://www.scouter.com/roundtables/scouts-l/Archives/9706/0066.html (I was
surfing around and was shocked to find it on the web) That site may not be
active, I was not able to access it today. The adult also said that he
thought scouts needed to hear experiences like that from other scouts, and it
was even better because it was coming from a scout from a neighboring town.
That got me thinking and I realized I could have even helped other scouts
around the country by what I said. To make a long story short, I decided to
re-subscribe to Scouts-L and I hope I can add to future discussions.
Anyhow, I have been involved in Boy Scouts for seven years, and was also a
cub scout. I am an Eagle Scout from Troop 68 in Trumbull, CT. We are from
the Fairfield County Council. I am currently an Assistant Scoutmaster in my
troop, and have served in many youth leadership positions, and training
staffs. I am also super active in the Order of the Arrow. I am a Vigil Honor
member from Tankiteke Lodge #313. I am currently serving as Lodge Chief. I
have done a lot in Scouting as a youth, and I am just starting as an adult.
Scouting has effected me in many ways and has basically made me the person I
