    PSA - Kander100 Announcement

    Scouter Ken will be at the Kander100 Jamboree!
    Announcement
    Scouter Ken has been selected as the Contingent Lead for the Scouts Canada delegation that will be attending Kander100, the mini-jamboree being held to celebrate the centenary of Kandersteg International Scout Centre. Thirty Scouts and Scouters (in total!) from Canada will be attending the event.

    If you’re curious, the Canadian Contingent website is here: KANDER100 JAMBOREE

    And yes, this likely means that there’ll be an episode or two recorded at (and published from) Kandersteg next year.

    Meet the Parents II

    Meet the Parents II

    Revisiting the how-tos of a parent meeting.
    Podcast Topics
    Ken and Colin revisit a topic from almost half the podcast ago — Episode 67, published in September of 2018, specifically — and offer some thoughts on how to hold a successful parent meeting.

    You can find some interesting blog articles about what needs to be communicated to parents, and how, and exactly how you go about it with the parents of youth in your Group will depend on all sorts of factors. But in summary, here’s the gist of what a successful parent meeting should include:


    Meetings, rather than one meeting. The 59th, at least, has had better success by ditching the “one big meeting” in favour of having the Group Commissioner come out to the first or second meetings for each Section.
    Set fundraising expectations early.
    Make the pitch for volunteers, both parent helpers and Scouters.
    Explain the badge program.
    Explain the uniform.
    Explain the Code of Conduct and set expectations for youth behaviour.
    Food isn’t necessary, but it isn’t unwelcome.

    Shout-Outs
    Scouter Eric from the Northern Lights Medical Venturers reached out to us to let us know that the MedVents are once again accepting membership applications. If you’re interested in Vocational Scouting and your home group is in NLC, consider submitting your name.

    As always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.

    Travel Woes

    Travel Woes

    Traveling by air these days is...tricky.
    Podcast Topics
    Whoa...where did June go?

    After too-long a hiatus, Ken and Colin sit down for another catch-up discussion, and also take a look at two recent stories that have come out concerning Scout Groups whose travel plan disruptions have made the national news.

    The first story is that of a Scout Group who ended up stuck in Zurich due to incomplete data in the ArriveCAN mobile app. The second is that of a different Scout Group who ended up camping out in the Vancouver airport after their planned flight from there to Whitehorse was cancelled.

    Two very different stories, but both illustrate the challenges that Scout Groups will likely be facing for a while yet as they plan and carry out adventures...especially the sorts of adventures that require air travel!
