- Hello, Scouter-T's!
My name is Stephanie Everett. I am on the District Training Team,
Training Committee and Cub Scout Roundtable staff in the Four Rivers
District, Baltimore Area Council, Maryland (or "Murr-lund" as they say
here :-). I'm also the Advancement Chair for Troop 672 in Severn, MD. I
got involved in Scouting about 6 years ago when my son's Bear Den Leader
suddenly quit. I said I'd run a few meetings until a permanent Den
Leader was found "so we don't lose the momentum". Well, needless to say,
they found a permanent Den Leader: me. Six years later, I'm still involved.
I've been a quiet lurker on Scouts-L for most of those six years, so I'm
very happy to see so many familiar "faces" here at Scouter-T. Scouts-L
has been an absolutely invaluable resource to me over the years, and I
expect that Scouter-T will be, too. (In fact, it already is!)
Yours in Scouting,
"I used to be an Eagle (NE-CS-58)" [Hi, Papa Bear!!]
"...and a good ol' Bear, too (NE-IV-123)"
- Hi! I'm new here. I am thinking of becoming a Cub/Boy Scout leader,
but not sure where to begin. I am currently a leader of a Brownie
Girl Scout troop and a Junior Girl Scout troop, both are
homeschooling troops. Now I have parents wanting to get their
homeschooled boys involved in Boy Scouts, too! I do not have a boy,
but I am willing to do my part to help these boys and parents get
involved. I am pretty excited to be able to bring them this
I hope to gain some more knowledge about how the Boy Scout
organization runs through this group.
- Welcome to the fellowship of Boy Scouting. The best way to start is to
contact your local council and get set up to meet with your local District
Executive. He will guide you through the registration process. The next
step is get involved in the training courses offered in your local council.
It is through your DE and your training that you will find the most support
to make your unit successful.

addy and phone information, plus the local council
website if an official website exists.
For a fast overview, interactive fast start training
is available online for Cub leaders and Boy Scout
leaders, and there is also an Adobe PDF file available
for download for Venturing adults.

This particular list (Scouter-T) is geared toward
training issues in Scouting, hence the T 8^).
However, many other Scouting related lists exist,
within yahoogroups and elsewhere. Some are very
specifically related to either Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts
or Venturing, and some are very broad based in the
