100 Days of Scouting – Day 100: Wrapping up and starting anew

Today I:

  • Made a trip to the scout shop to purchase the awards and advancement for the camp out pack meeting this weekend
  • Ran the final Webelos den meeting for the boys as First Year Webelos
  • Finished up the official postings in the 100 Days of Scouting

Today marks the end of a few things of this part of the scouting world.  It also marks the beginning of some other things.

We had our Webelos meeting tonight.  Yes, it is not Tuesday our normal night.  We have moved the meetings because one of the boys in the den has baseball games scheduled on Tuesdays this summer.  Not that there has been much baseball played with all the rain we have had.  It was just easier to move the meetings in advance rather than wait for word of a rain out or not and have to move at the last-minute.  This was the last meeting we had scheduled to complete all the requirements for Outdoorsman.  Two of the boys needed to have the knots requirement signed off (they tied them correct without any assistance).  We also had planned a fire building/string burning contest.  We finished up rehearsing our skit for the camp out.

Traditionally at our May camp out pack meeting we “cross over” each of the boys into their new rank for the upcoming year.  With everybody moving up, our Webelos will become Second Year Webelos.  The boys will start working on the Arrow of Light meeting plans in the Den and Pack Resource Guide starting with our next meeting.  So as one portion of the program wraps up another portion starts anew.

Today also marks the end of the daily (or almost/mostly daily) postings in the 100 Days of Scouting.  I took on the challenge set out by ScoutSigns to blog about my scouting activities each day from starting on the anniversary of scouting.  Some days were filled with lots of scouting activities.  Others there just wasn’t much going on.  I’ve met a number of scouters across the country via their blogs and Twitter.  I have enjoyed reading what others are doing within their part of ScoutNation and have even borrowed some great ideas.  I hope others who have stumbled by here feel the same way.  Now that the 100th day upon us, does that mean the posts will stop?  Of course not.  I started this blog last fall because I felt I had some things to share on what and how we do scouting here in Northern Kentucky.  As I did before February 8, I will continue to keep sharing the various activities in meetings and outings we do with our pack and den.  Now that our younger son is now a new Tiger Cub with me as the den leader, there should be enough stuff going on to keep the keyboard humming.  This round of the 100 Days has wrapped up.  Scouting won’t stop just because there are not daily posts.  The next round of postings starts anew with all the upcoming activities we have planned.
