  • New Eagle Scout here!

    Very new, in fact! Today (ok well yesterday, since it's past midnight), Thursday, November 8th, at 7:45 PM, I was officially awarded the rank of Eagle Scout! It is SUCH a good feeling that you may not really understand unless you've gotten it yourself. Of course, I had my celebratory bottle of IBC root beer when I got home

          Nice job! I made it to Life - and then real life kicked in, and I had to retire from scouting.

          I still miss those days.

              Well done, Andrew!!! You should consider joining the NESA (National Eagle Scout Association). Might come in useful one day. What did you do for your project?

                So is it safe to assume that you long ago swore celibacy?

                      Congratulations on your accomplishment. I have a friend whose son made Eagle recently. All of you are exceptional people for showing that level of commitment.

                      Regards,

                          Thank you all, very much! And Slick-yes, of course!

                          I'll have to look into the NESA-I've heard of them.

                            Cool, mate.
