Board of Reviews are scheduled for Wednesday this coming week since lots of the younger boys would be needing them since most got stuff done to advance a rank over summer camp time. So, the scoutmaster told the boys that they would need to call him and set up a time to do their scoutmaster reviews in order to be considered for the Board of Review. Since Sean's friend surprisingly showed up to the scout meeting this past Monday (after they all had to leave school early and go to an away cross country meet in the rain), Sean finished his last requirement for First Class. So, he called Tuesday to set up the meeting... I had him follow up with an e-mail on Thursday morning since leaving a message got him nowhere. He got a reply that the scoutmaster would be home by 6pm on Friday and we could go then... well, we called, and sent text messages to the cell phone, but there's still no response and it's now 7:15pm and we are still waiting to see if we should drive over. Same deal on the doctor who is merit badge counselor for personal fitness... Sean called him on Tuesday as well to set up the first meeting... he asked what time-frame and he said he wanted to get started this weekend or the coming week... doc said he would call us back to agree on date/time... still waiting. I guess their meeting went well... it was mostly about what they were planning for the year. Sean's friend said he wanted Sean to get his requirement done and that's why he came, but he enjoyed being there with all the boys... I still don't think he will join... they were in cub scouts.
The Cub Scout meeting was also Monday night. I was the only leader and I knew that the cubmaster wouldn't be able to get his kid there (Bear level). I also knew the one Tiger was coming with Grandpa, so I planned to have the 4 Webelos look in their books and go over the Webelos Rank requirements. I think I'm going to assign each boy to become an expert on 2 parts of the rank requirements like handshake and parts of webelos badge for one kid and then each kid can "review" their things with the others so that they can have some ownership and team building and I get a minute break in not having to talk! I planned for the Tigers to do the leaf rubbing and I gathered some cool leaves at home first in case it was still raining. Only 1 Tiger showed and we had 1 younger sibling so I had the 2 of them get some leaves, make some rubbings, then paste one of them onto a blank card to make a greeting card. Only 3 Webelos showed up, so we did our stuff and then I had all 4 boys make drawings that I'd like to have somehow combined onto a Pack t-shirt... but I want to get something on from each boy... I e-mailed everyone about what they missed and told them when I wanted the drawings and I've not had any response what-so-ever... not e-mail or anything about the shirts or anything else.
oh- the phone just rang... gotta go to the scoutmaster conference... I'll write more later.
