Well, I've been away from the list for a little while (since before my
exams at the start of the Summer), and there seem to be quite a few
new faces (erm, well new names then...), so I thought I'd quickly
I am a Venture Scout in the UK (yes that's the United Kingdom, not a
US state...). My group is the 4th Ewell (Nonsuch) Scout Group, in the
district of Epsom and Ewell in the county of Surrey.
I am also a member of Oxford University Scout and Guide Group (OUSGG),
part of the national Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO).
I am currently working towards my Queen's Scout Award (the highest
award you can obtain as a youth member in this country - equivalent in
a way to the US Eagle Scout Award, though I don't know how good the
analogy is - I expect they are very different).
Outside of Scouting, as you have probably worked out, I am a student
at Oxford University. I've just started my second year of Maths and
Compuation at Keble College.
A word of warning: I tend to ignore things with "BSA", "Eagle", "Merit
Badge" etc in the subject, so if anyone for some strange reason does
want to contact me, don't rely on posting to the list. My email
address is <DavidBall@Lycosmail.Com>
