Re: First Nighter Agenda

The Belmonster doesn't do first nighters as far as I know, but some of the
other ships around here have an interesting idea of how to get new recruits.
When I was on the Morning Star (110), every July, we'd do something called a
cub scout cruise. We took a group of cub scouts out on the boat to give them
an idea of what we did in the sea scouts. I was talking to the XO of the
Vanguard (17) yesterday, and he said that they, too, plan to take new
recruits with them when they cruise back from Yerba Buena Island later this
month. What works well about that idea is that it gives new recruits a more
concrete idea of what we do than just talking to them about it does.
