Gee, I must be REALLY old, I thought the limit was 6.  :mellow:


As far as uniforms go, the trend seems to be whatever one wants to wear is acceptable.  Just last week, I was late for the meeting and slipped on just my shirt, didn't have the pants, belt or socks to go with it.  I had on a pocket vest with all my stuff in it and my jackshirt and expedition hat.  I was not being a good scout in any sense of the word, but it was either that or be late.


When it came time for the opening flags, I gave the civilian salute.  One of the boys said something about it, that I hadn't done it correctly.  I said hand over my heart, what's wrong with that.  He said I should have used the scout salute.  I said I wasn't in uniform.  He said I had my shirt on.  I reminded him, that's not being in uniform. 


We'll see where that goes the next couple of weeks.....

We have a old timer in our unit who wears three knots: His AOL, his Eagle and his religious knot. 


One of our new dads, active in district with a chest full of knots, asked him one night, "Is that all you have after x years of Scouting?"


They old timer replied, "No, these mean the most to me because they were accomplishments of experience, faith and service to others. The other 23 are in a box somewhere."

There is no such word as "Webelo." 

The only proper singular of Webelos Scouts is ... WEBELOS SCOUT!

No you are right, 2 rows.  I see 3 rows and Its doesn't bother me that much but when I see 3 and 4 rows then there is a problem.
