Slight threadjack, sassydog, did you ever go to Owasippe Scout Reservation in Michigan when you were in scouts? That is a beautiful place owned by the Chicago Area Council, BSA.

On my honor I will do my best, to do my duty, to God and my country and to obey the scout laws, to help other people at all times, to keep myself phyically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

A scout is, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverant.

I learned something 48 years ago and remembered it!:D

I would like to say yes but at my Arrow of Light ceremony (Cub Scouts?) I was dismissed and then pulled by my ear all the way down Dublin Road in Columbus Ohio while my mother screamed in my other ear! I went and hid in my tree fort, ripped off my uniform and threw it out one of the windows and waited until dark to walk home in my tidy whitey's! This may explain some things?:o

enough talk about this stuff, lets talk about the good scouts do...

so you know, girls can be scout leaders and order of the arrow members as adults...but other countries allow girls to be youth scouts, including canda...certainly is interesting when you participate in a canadian scout even and see girls in tents in scout uniforms...

but of course in the states you have the explorer posts, which allow girls in...

Some of you have met my son who's on the right track towards eagle. He's only been at the scout level for one year (me being his leader in cub's for 3 yrs where he earned the arrow of light) but he already has many requirements completed towards his advanced ranks, just needs to do the BOR's.
Although I wasn't able to advance past cub's due to a move accross country as a kid, I'm currently trained as assistant scoutmaster, scoutmaster and committee chair though am taking it easy this year(merit badge counselor for waterski (of course), aviation, and automotive repair).

Ric,
I think you are just paranoid, I was just trying to figure out if you made OOA as an adult or as a kid, if as a kid (assuming you were always a female) your local council must have a different setup than we did.

Very good for your son.. good that you can help keep him focused and help out with some merit badges.. There is no other chance that I know of to experience so many adventures.. I am on the local Eagle Board of Review... I only say that to say this: there was one young man that came through about two months ago that I was extremely envious of.. He had the triple crown.. IE he went to the Canadian outback, Seabase and Philmont.. All three are life experiences and he got to go to all three... Just a suggestion look into them.. As he advances that may be some father and son stuff that would rock!!!
