I'm a Pack Trainer for a Pack in the Bluebonnet District, Circle Ten Council. I've been a den leader, committee member and for the last two years a Pack Trainer. I also help with training at District level training New Leaders, Tiger Den Leader, Cub Den Leader and Webelos Den Leader. I also volunteer every summer at our district's Twilight Camp and other events throughout the year. My son will be bridging to a Boy Scout Troop in a month, he is a proud recipient of his Arrow of Light! I enjoyed a weekend of IOLS this last spring and I have finally gotten around to signing up for Wood Badge this coming January (I'm excited). I have a two year old who will be a Tiger in a few years. My husband has been Den Leader, Cubmaster and Webelos Den Leader and now assistant Scoutmaster so between the two of us we'll be well prepared the second time around. My oldest is giving us a training course in Scout Parenting I always say!
I look forward to discussions about Scout training issues, I'm always learning and always questioning.
Yours in Scouting,
