I have to agree with you. I say this because at our last merit badge
fair I put together a video for ZDTV. ZDTV uses home videos put together
using a "webcam" as trailers and fillers for their tv shows. So I had
the scouts taking the computer merit badge course make a video. We made
one for each class, then my asst. Doug and I made a video. I mixed them
all together and sent it in. So if you get ZDTV, watch the Screen Savers
and you just might see the scouts of Santa Fe Trail Council.
Now before any of you guys have a negative knee jerk reaction, remember,
I am no dummy, and a veteran scouter. I took all the steps to get it
okayed around here. I did not go to National, because as far as I am
concerned if my SE says it is okay, then everything is fine. Also ZDTV
wanted parental approval before broadcasting the video.
If you want to see the video, go to
You must have Realvideo 5.0 or better to view the video.
