I was wondering if anyone on the forum is a part of the BSA is an Eagle Scout, scout, leader, etc..

Edit: I have added a poll for rank/position in scouting and in the O.A. Please only select one scout Rank/one leader rank and one O.A.(if in the O.A.) Rank for the sake of accuracy.

Thanks,
Chris

My family was in scouts. All of us. I like some parts of it but for the most part I did not care for outdoorsy, camping, boy scouts and the scenery. The part I did like was cub scouts, I got a very good friend out of it known for a long time(that know my situation), watering the trees :wink: and coming home. I did not like most of the camping trips

I liked the people just not the scouting part.

I got into several arguments with the leadership of my troop so I quit. I was given the option of 2 troops at the crossover and now I really wish I picked the other.

There aren't any real pointers on that. Vigil isn't something you seek out; it's something that you get if the people around you feel that you should have it.

I'm in the Kansa lodge, which came from the merger of the Nani-Ba-Zhu and Hi-Cha-Ko-Lo lodges.

I'm amazed at the number of eagle and boy scouts. I got my eagle a few years ago and now occasionally help the troop. It's hard when life gets in the way, but it's always nice to help the people that helped you along the way to eagle.

It's funny, but back when I started boy scouts I visited every troop in my area and didn't like any of them. So we took it into our own hands and made a troop (thanks to my dad) and now it's one of the bigger ones in our area, and is not completely inundated with jerks and losers. It's nice to have a little control and be able to start your own troop.

Good luck to those who are striving toward eagle scout. Don't give up!

I was at one point in time, but then I joined Karate and Marching band.
The three together just KILLED me, and I had to give up one of them. Scouts lost. Though I did learn a LOT through the years.

Ditto. I left a few years ago, and I was only tenderfoot rank. Half of me regrets leaving, but I had no time, and even if i wanted to join now, I still dont have any.

Well in a way they do, they are called eagle palms which are commendations for future activity in your troop and earning more merit badges after you have already achieved eagle.

Failed Cub Scout?

I joined when I was 9 and quit after three weeks shortly after I was instructed to carve a "dog" out of a bar of soap.

Wow, a lot more Eagle scouts here than I thought!!!
I am an Eagle Scout as well!
Great to find so many other Eagles on these forums.

Anyone here go to Philmont????????????

I only went once, but I got to climb Baldy, the steep face down is fun!!!! :mrgreen:

And did I read correctly that Georges was a Scoutmaster?!?!?! Small world huh? :lol:

And TBTTyler, I was in the EXACT same situation as you, but for me karate lost out.

Peace

Very nice, and may I say congratulations, it is a huge accomplishment and one you will carry with you forever.

From one eagle scout to another, job well done.

Since it's bump I guess I should ask for some help.

My 18th b-day is 12/21 and I'll I have left is the project which I should have started months ago. What are some good and fast projects that aren't just throw away and actually help people?

Building things like a bulletin board or some type of garden dedicated to a cause are easy... I rebuilt a playground so don't as me :lol:
