- As a new member of this group it's suggested that I provide a brief
introduction of myself for the group.
In 1960 I entered Cub Scouts in Pack 330 in Miami, Florida, working my way
through Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, Lion and Webelos. I then joined Troop 344,
also in Miami in 1963. While in that troop I earned my Eagle in 1968 and
became a member of the Order of the Arrow. As a youth, I served on
numerous JLT staffs and also on summer camp staff. I was a member of
Explorer Post 623 for a couple of years in the early 70s as well.
College lessened my involvement in scouting. In 1980, I decided to get
more involved and became an assistant district commissioner in the Circle
Ten Council. That lasted a couple of years. Then in the mid-80s I became
associated with a career interest Explorer post. In 1998, I felt I needed
to get reinvolved with this thing called scouting and became I member
of the North Trail District Committee. I have served on the membership
committee since that time. I have also served as Cub Master for Pack 456
in the North Trail District of Circle Ten Council.
Training-wise, I have taken Cub Leader Basic, Youth Protection and Train
the Trainer. I have also taken the "District Committee" at
Philmont (1999) and "Strictly for Cub Masters" (2000). I am working my
ticket from Wood Badge course SR-Y2K-X2. I have taught Tiger Cubs at my
district's spring CLBT and am course director for BALOO next fall. I have
also attended Cub Scout Day Camp at National Camping School and will serve
as assistant program director this summer.
Hopefully that's the high points and not too boring, because I'm about to
take off from work early so that my Tiger Cub son and I can go camping with
his pack tonight and then spend the morning at Cub World.
Yours in Scouting,
Eagle-Class of '68
I used to be a Fox . . . (SR-Y2K-X2)
