When talking about Pack / Troop etc. web sites, one of the suggestions Shawn had for […]

ARRSE

No, I’m not going all Fr. Jack, ARRSE refers to the British ARmy Rumour SErvice. I received an email last night from a frequent contributor to those message boards saying how he’d stumbled across my Scout Group’s web site, that he was impressed with our Remembrance Web Site and that he’d posted something to that […]

Ralph for President

I was reading this post by Jerry of the Scoutmasterminute.com on the qualities needed for a US President. He was saying that if the President and politicians followed the (US) Scout Law, then he or she couldn't go too far wrong!

Bye Bye Beeb.net
