Re: [Scouter_T] Questions on the new Cub Scout leader training
thanks for the timing reports for the first two modules. That is good
information to know.
With the old syllabus we have combined cubmaster with committee with good
results. That is too bad the the two don't mesh so well anymore. I think
it is good for both those positions to know what the other is/should be
What did you use to show the slides with? Do you have access to a
projector? That is the only way I could see getting the font big enough for
everyone to read.
Yours in Scouting,
Scouter in NH

- The pack owns a projector, so I used that. Otherwise, I would have borrowed
one from the council office - they have several that are available for us to

- I think there is a projector at council that I could use, but it is an hour
drive to the office. That would make four trips total to get the thing and
to return it. Ouch on the gas cost alone! Our DE doesn't live far from me,
but he works at home most of the time. I think he only goes to the office
once a week.
