Scoutmaster's Corner

October has been an exciting month! We were blessed to have good weather at both the Cub-O-Ree and the Knoebels camping trip. And speaking of Cub-O-Ree, we had another year with a great gateway and a fun activity for the Cub Scouts. Thank you to everyone who came out to make sure the Cub Scouts have a good time. Many hands make light work.

Knoebels was also a great trip. The wooden coasters were a thrill. Many of the scouts brought their Hammocks, and we settled once and for all how to attach the tent elastic to the wishbone!

This tent wishbone is a perfect example of what my Scoutmaster's Minutes this month have focused on: history and passing down knowledge. The troop has a tremendous amount of collective experience. But, passing down this knowledge is something I think we have to work on.

So, I'll take this as another chance to say that I am starting a wiki on our website to document these things. If there is something you know about scout skills or how the Troop does something, send me an email with a some of that wisdom. I've already started articles on: the 3-pot cleaning system, our monster boxes, and the trailer. So, I challenge each scout and leader to think of one thing that we do well and write about it! Even if it's only a couple of sentences, we can start small and before too long, we'll have a formidable compendium of Troop 152 know-how.
