Day 32 already, wow. Seems like I just started this crazy ride and we’re already this far! I have to say that I’m loving this journey – and I’m glad that so many of you at least take a peek at what I have to say! I have discovered a whole new dimension of Scouting – and I will continue to explore it and enjoy!
I’m feeling really good today about Scouting in general. Last night the Mrs. and I held our second Roundtable as Commissioners – and it went very well, in my opinion! We had a few more people attend (first good thing) and we had some very good discussions. I think we’re on the right track, at least! I hope those that attended enjoyed it as well…
We’re finding that we don’t need to have as much material ready as I thought we would. What was supposed to be an hour meeting turned into almost two hours! No one complained, as it was all good information and discussion.
One of the things brought up was training, and how very soon all registered leaders will need to be fully trained in their registered positions in order to recharter with the unit. Does anyone know what training a Roundtable Commissioner needs to take to be considered ‘trained’? I would very much like to take the appropriate training not only for myself, but for all those who come to Roundtables. The Mrs. and I really want to improve the program for all leaders however we’re able.
The Troop is, in my opinion, heading in the right direction once again – and I think we’re making progress on the Roundtable side of things. I’m feeling good….really good about Scouting right now.
Here’s hoping each and every one of you have a wonderful weekend!
