      Introduction to Out Door Leader Skills – (IOLS) will be taught Nov 2 – 4, 2012 at Camp Currier. This is where adults learn the basic skills for scouts to earn 1st class, and valuable scouting methods. It’s fun, it’s informative, you will make new friends and help out your troop’s program. E-mail me for more info or to volunteer to help teach. Last year’s class was a great group of scouters. See you! 901-619-0492.

    Add a blog on Troop Outing locations that allows our local Troops to pool knowledge. Examples – “11-Point Canoeing”, “Shiloh”, “Ferne Clyffe”, “Dismals Canyon”, “Reelfoot”. Include as “sub-blogs” under each suggested contacts, camping location, activities in the area, travel info, special needs, and other pointers for that outing that Troops can build on.

    Doing so would allow Troops to pool knowledge and help us prevent “re-inventing the wheel” for each activity.

    Example – our Troop recently went to Dismals Canyon. I could put campsite info and pictures, contact info, cost for activities, our itinerary, special issues (like carting stuff up the hill to the Boy Scout site), facilities info, and other useful information.

    Also, create a “Resources” blog with sub-blogs. For example, we found out that a local Troop rents canoes as it’s fundraiser. We have rented twice and we happy to support our fellow Scouts. had I not been talking about this to a fellow Scouter, I would not have known.

    Lastly, create a “classified” section that Troops can publicize equipment they have that they’d like to pass along to other Troops, or items their Troop is in need of.

    Lots of good info on the website already. These suggestions would provide an even more practical addition.

      I will hand out a “Camping Resource section in the Scpouters Note Book at IOLS. Thanks. We go over camping spots at Round Table once a year as well and input is welcome. Can we use yours?
