    Last year was a skateboard and a Wii remote.

    Survived another year. The Blue and Gold is like running a marathon while playing the Superbowl. It is the biggest event of the year. District people come and watch, grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, EVERYONE shows up.

    It feels like I am under a microscope the whole time.

    I just re-read all that and realized that it sounds like I'm negative about it. It is a thrill. I love the program. It is a point of pride to me that I know all of my cubs by name, all 30 of them. I learn the scout's name before I learn the parent's name. They are the reason I'm involved in the program.

    Scouting is an awesome program, IF, and that is a big IF, you have good, dedicated people running the program.

    If not, Scouting isn't worth the time that you put into it.

    My youngest went to the county Pinewood Derby race last year. We don't have competitions beyond that level around here, yet. He didn't win a trophy, but had fun. Still talks about it.

    Scouting is a great experience for the little people. Makes me smile about your youngest.

    I know you would!!! I know you all would! I understand and respect that and find it truly admirable!

    I would have difficulty accepting. My problems are not the forums problems.... and I guess maybe I should not have vented here. All it was was a vent. Frank asked how things were and I stupidly responded. but then I also realize how good it is to post our problems here.... where we hear encouraging words and know that other "Brothers of the Biz" care and feel for one another. Much like the reason Frank started this thread! And what a great thread it is. It is the reason i try to check in almost everyday. Sometimes its not possible.... but still the thought is there.

    you guys are the best and I feel at home here!
