I am new to this list so I thought I would introduce myself.
I am Will Morse, one of several mates for Ship 1659, Spring Texas.
Ship 1659 is one of two ships in the Polaris District, which is part of
the Sam Houston Area Council. I am also Unit Commissioner for
the other ship, Ship 1323. SHAC has about 21 ships in all.
We have about 30 boys and 5 girls.
Our focus is high adventure with a nautical theme and tradition, rather
than sailing or powerboating per se. The Ship has been to Philmount,
Florida Sea Base, and we just got back from The Boundary Waters
Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnisota. We took 16 boys, two girls,
and seven leaders (one female) split into three crews. The crews were
the Come Lobos (Wolf Eaters), El Tazar (Barracudas), and Alphas
(who also got called the Yanqui Perros, but not by themselves).
I have done the class work and am working on my praxis for Seabadge.
Of the three parts of my praxis, I took Red Cross Canoe Certification
this trip, I have taught sailing theory, and I am working on a notebook
resource book for our Fleet to contain summaries of various ship's long
cruises. I am interested in summaries of long cruises if you would
send me yours. I need:
= Ship (number and name if you have one)
= Location (city, state, district, council)
= Start point, intermediate travel, cruise start point, destination
= Costs, if possible broken into fees, travel, personal, etc.
= What you liked
= What you didn't like / would have done differently
= Lessons learned / advice to others
Being new here, I don't know if it is appropriate to post these or not,
feel free to email them to me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org I will
to share our experience with anyone who is interested.
I am also interested in the changes going on in Exploring and Venturing.
I have the material in www.sea.scouter.com and some printed material
about the Bronze, Gold, and Silver awards and Ranger awards. That
is about it. I am interested in anything else I can find out.
