New Troop Manual 2014

I finished today the Troop Manual, a reference for Scouts, Scouters Parents and folks who are helping our Troop grow. This is Version 1. It outlines what I think is the best practices for a Troop like ours. Please feel free to send any constructive criticism my way. While I think most of what is documented makes sense for our troop, their is always room for improvement. Thanks again, Troop 23 Manual

Get Ready For The BSA’s Kindle Library

The Boy Scouts of America is in the process of making its merit badge pamphlets available for purchase on Amazon’s Kindle platform.

That means you’ll be able to download the pamphlets (and other official BSA books) on any Kindle device, or through any of the free Kindle reader apps available for computers and portable devices such as iPods, iPhones and iPads.

All of the Eagle-required merit badges except for Citizenship in the World and Sustainability are already available. Of course, the Digital Technology pamphlet is already available, as is Robotics.

The BSA will continue to add titles to the digital format in the weeks and months to come.
