      Ida: You will be fine with whatever you had planned for the Midway
      and Show N Tell. That is your time to "shine" with something you
      feel your fellow participants will enjoy learning from you. Besides,
      it wouldn't be practical to tie in the themes, as each conference
      will have a different theme. For the Cub week that was held in June,
      there was a Pirate theme, Circus theme, Racing theme, Movie theme,
      Train theme and Tropical theme.

      Have a great time at Philmont...it is a very special place. You will
      have a great time!
