Live Show? YES!

If you have been following my channel on YouTube, you know I’ve been talking about doing more live shows. In the midst of all this, a young man from England contacted me. Mark from the Big Man In The Woods channel asked if I would be available for a live chat on his channel.  Well, one thing led to another and we set the date for this coming Saturday, July 31st, at 3 PM (EST) this is 8 PM in London. If you have enjoyed Mark’s channel as I have then you know he is passionate about Scouting. I am looking forward to our discussion. Even if you are not going to join in the chat you should at least subscribe to Mark’schannel and check out some of his videos.

SATURDAY JULY 31 @ 3 PM (EST)

I have done a lot of Internet zoom meetings especially the past year with all the lockdown stuff going on. I have become very comfortable with live video. In June I hosted the BSA’s first International Virtual Cub Scout Day Camp. This was about 9 hours a day for two weeks of live video. I was so glad that Mark asked me to just sit and talk about Scouting in the United States. If you’re familiar with Mark’s channel you know that he is based in London England and the Scouting program was founded there before it immigrated to America. There are major differences between the two Scouting programs although the core values are the same.

I encourage you to set a reminder NOW to join us this coming Saturday. I will try to ask Mark some questions about living so close to Gilwell Park for us Wood Badgers.   YIS⚜

Wood Badge is the Highest Level of Adult Scout Leader Training

♫ “Back to Gilwell O’Happy Land… 
I’m Going to work my Ticket if I can.” ♫ 

Wood Badge is the highest level of adult Scout leader training available in the World. The first Wood Badge training was organized by Francis “Skipper” Gidney and lectured by Robert Baden-Powell and others at Gilwell Park in the UK in September of 1919. The first course in America was held at Schiff Scout Reservation in 1948. Scouters wanting to take the course must be fully position trained with current YPT. All levels of Scouts BSA are encouraged to take this high-level training. Wood Badge is set up as a 6-day course. One full week or two full weekends of training. After completing the course members of Troop 1 start working their “ticket” to complete the training. On completion, the Scouter is awarded the Gilwell Wood beads, neckerchief, and woggle. Warning, this is high-level training. I have seen it change people’s point of view of the world. Your critter and patrol members will become a special part of your scouting life.
