100 Days of Scouting: Day 85

Today I:

Deposited more overdue summer camp fees--not a problem though, folks are just so busy now.

Purchased a new 3-man tent and a new sleeping bag.  Scouting related?  Yep.  Bag is for me, tent is one I hope the Scouts will adopt for our excursions.  Either way, I'll probably keep the tent for me...

Posted information on the new fundraiser the council is having.  Books-A-Million is having a book fair, with proceeds going to the council.  Nice idea!  Competitions and more.

Added a Scout to the troop's YahooGroup--he finally has his own email address!

Answered a slightly anxious question from a new Boy Scout mom--apparently, he is going camping but isn't exactly sure where we are going...or when...or for how long...Great opportunity to educate her on the "go ask your patrol leader" method.

Finally, a full day of Scouting!  Some days just lend themselves to it better than others--I think it is by staying vigilant to opportunities.  What do you think?
