Archive | Scout Nation

Scout Nation is a term that covers listeners from all over the world. One day, a weird tweet went out, which was followed with an email, which prompted a phone call. Combine that with a couple of Skype calls, and an idea was born…Not to take away from any other shows, we thought about having discussions that focus on what works for us…

We hope to have monthly guests, who can help offer insight, thoughts and ideas on what makes their units work. We will also have discussions on Troop SOPs, troop size, recruiting, and any other topics that come up.

Scout Nation 6.3

It’s been a long time, due to being busy and a lot of technical difficulties on the part of Scoutmaster Shawn…yea, you would think that I would know how to do this…

Regardless, Bryan and I talked a lot about Woodbadge and some other great troop items. Plus the amazing story of Scouter Jeff.

What Do You Do? – Scout Nation 5

Sorry for the delay, scouters…life caught up with the Scoutmasters and they didn’t have the time to record a show.

Finally, the schedules cleared, and we were able to sit down and record a long show about things going on in the troop and we were able to talk about the new Scout Nation Fit Club
