swimming and first year scouts
Sat, 26 Jun 1999 17:47:54 -0500
Just had my first experience with the new First Class swimming requirements
and my two newest boys. Both are 11 1/2 years old and small--COMBINED they
don't weigh 150 lbs! This afternoon they breezed through the swim test, and
rescues and then asked to do the 150 yard swim for the Swimming MB!
And no, they are not into swimming any more than an occassional weekend at a
Seems like the requirements are fine to me...
