I thought this would be fun to attend.  For the hundreds of Cub Scouts that were there, it was.  For me and my son it wasn’t what we had expected.  We should have volunteered to be on staff instead of attending.  It was a great program for the Cub Scouts and they seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Next year my son and I will know better and work on staff to insure the Cub Scouts keep coming back.

ILST-Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.

The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops course is to teach Scouts with leadership positions about their new roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Boy Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts and is a replacement for Troop Leadership Training.

Completion of Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership courses National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE). It is also required to participate in a Kodiak Challenge Trek.

We met at Area 51 on Friday to pack the trailer. The trailer packing was cancelled Thursday because it snowed that day. We left about 7:30 to go to Buck’s Pocket. We arrived there about 10:00 then we unpacked, set up and went to bed because we were very tired.

On Saturday morning…

From Scoutmaster: Apparently our Webmaster is still very tired as he hasn’t finished this web page yet.

“We got there about 8:00 pm and someone talked for a few minutes and then we all split up. Alex, Dylan, Lane and I were there helping. All of the people went to different places in the community and we helped with whatever needed to be done. Dylan, Lane and I went to the high school.

When we got to the school there was trash all over the place and it just looked horrible. The three of us went around and picked up all the trash that we could find. Which turned out to be 3 garbage bags full. We did this while our parents did some yard work like pulling weeds. After that we got a big dump truck full of mulch and spread it around in the flower beds. Then we cleaned up the tree.

The tree went all the way down the hill on the other side of the parking lot. We went to cut it up with a chainsaw and we had to roll it over to cut it. When we went to roll it over a king snake came out from under it. We also saw a black widow when we tried to throw the logs in the woods. We had lots of fun and did about 4 hours of community service after we had ended at 12:00 pm.” – write up by Landon Mullins, Troop scribe
