After quickly becoming a fan of An Hour A Week? Podcast, Bob Blakey decided to try podcasting himself. Bob began producing Akela’s Adventure Podcast to help new scout leaders, like himself, find resources, tells stories of their experiences and to discuss ways to improve on being scout leaders. Akela’s Adventure was active from August 2006 through November 2007

As of 2007, Bob held the position of Assistant Cubmaster and Den Leader for Pack 510 out of Belton, Missouri. Although he only began his scouting journey in June of 2006, he has amassed so much knowledge by aligning himself with experienced scouters, reading everything he can about scouting and participating in as many scouting events as he can.

Cubmaster Minute:
[i]Tiny seedling don’t look like much, do they? They are very weak and fragile. But we have learned this month that if we plant it in good soil, and if we make sure that it gets lots of sunshine, air and water, it will grow up to be a big and healthy.

Cub Scouts are like seedling. They need certain things, too. Things like proper rest, food and exercise. But Cub Scouts need something more than that. If they are going to be the kind of men we all admire, they have to have healthy minds and spirits as well as healthy bodies. In Cub Scouting, and later on in Boy Scouting, boys can develop that extra quality of mind and spirit. They do it by following the Cub Scout Promise, and later, the Scout Oath.[/i]

Cubmaster Minute:
[i]Once upon a time, two brothers left the farm to move to a city to look for work. Just outside of the city, the first brother met an old man and asked him, “What are the people like in this city?” The Old man replied, ‘Well, how were they where you come from?” “They are all grumpy and cross,” replied the brother. ” That’s why I decided to leave.” “You’ll find the people here exactly the same,” said the old man as he walked on down the road.[/i]

[i]A little while later, the old man met the second brother. He too asked, “What are the people like in this city? The Old man replied, “‘Well, how were they where you come from? “They were very nice. They always smiled,” replied the brother. “That’s why it was so hard for me to leave.” “You’11 find the people here exactly the same,” said the old man as he smiled and joined the second brother on his way. Remember, we reap what we sow.[/i]

Cubmaster Minute:
Take a package of tiny carrot seeds – they don’t look like much. But if we plant them in the right kind of soil, and make sure they get lots of sunlight, water and air, they will grow to be big, healthy carrots. Our Cub Scouts are a little like the carrot seeds – they have the potential to grow into strong, healthy young men. As scout leaders and parents, we can provide the varied experiences, learning opportunities and growing space so that our Cubs will develop into young men of character, with strong minds, bodies and spirits. Remember to take care of your most precious crop.

What you give in life has a tendency to go round and round. What you give is what you get.
Remember what goes around comes around. The Cub Scout motto is “Do your best.” By doing your best – you
get the best back.
