3rd 100 Days of Scouting: Day 2

Day 2 of this year's 100 Days of Scouting brings news.

First, it quit snowing yesterday as soon as I sent out the notices that we would cancel our meetings.  I wish I could say it was the first time that had happened!  We have a number of families that drive 30-45 minutes through the mountains to attend our weekly meetings, so better safe than sorry with icy roads.

Second, it is a shame that great Scouting community we had built up on Twitter has virtually vanished.  I know many have moved to Google Plus, but it just isn't the same.  If anyone is interested in getting it going again, I'm here.

Third, new merit badge rolling out 24 FEB: Welding Today's good deed was to announce the new arrival to our troop and to solicit parents that might be qualified to serve as merit badge counselors for it.

Tonight brings our chapter Order of the Arrow meeting, for which my son serves as the vice chapter chief.  Forty minute drive each way.

After the OA meeting, is our district roundtable.  Between the two meetings, it is worth the 90 minutes on the road.  The last several months have brought us a complete change in district leadership with a new District Executive, a new District Commissioner and a new District Chair.  Lots of new going on, which is still sorting itself out.
