Just pull the Primary Instructor off the stage with a Shepherd's Crook and take over for him.

We had a good time. Lots of Doug Marsh in the videos that need updated. I hope Karl can get in there and update those.

I learned they changed the bronze to Adventure Bronze. Silver to Adventure Silver and Gold to Adventure Gold and then after 2016 a boy will need to complete 5 years of RR to get his GMA or at least 2 tracks... DR and AR or AR and ER any one near their GMA needs to look at it very closely as if they delay it could cost them 3 years max at going back and getting a past track completed or future track completed.

I didn't catch that change until I went to Basics.

Changes ad nauseum. How can anyone be expected to keep up?

Thank the Lord he never changes. His standards and character don't alter.

I am so used to change at my work. It's almost a daily turn around. What we were doing last week has been superseded by the next great idea. GRIN!

In this case it really didn't even rattle me. I just said oh, ok. The GMA had been restored to a hard sought after medal once again. Boys just coming into the program can no longer get it with 3 years of work. They will now need to do 6 years of work. (My personal opinion is this... I know GMAers that are in the pen more than two.) My goal in RR is to develop a boy into a fine young man through the methods of the Johnnie Barnes methods.

They are most likely not going to get a GMA through me as that is not my focus. It is others focus in our outpost and I am not opposed to it. Yet It's not that important to me.

Change is part of living. l I just don't like bad change.

It's a good program that needs some tweaking to make it better. I can still do the methods I know that work in it. The rest of it I figure will go away sooner or later.

I just set in on a 6 hour exe. committee meeting for our District. It was 6 hours of changing things for this next year and planning a exciting year for our District. While most of it was tweaking the plan a bit to make it seem like "new and exciting" it was still the plan. Yet we spent a great deal of time and effort making this ministry work in our District. With out this planning and commitment things frazzle and fall apart.
Then we spent another 4 hours winterizing the campground toliets and showers. I just love getting on the floor disconnecting the supply tubes to 20 to 30 toliets, sinks and showers and blowing out the lines and removing the S traps under them. Wooo whooo Rangers. Fun! It's worth it.
