Bay Area Council Pow Wow, 1994

Via Circle Ten Council

Divide the audience into two groups and have them respond to the following key words:

Home: "Home on the Range"

United States: "This Land is your Land"

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like HOME.

No matter where in the UNITED STATES you may roam.

You may travel all over the UNITED STATES,

But your HOME state with you always rates.

Some choose to roam while others stay,

Always in their HOME state 'til their dying day.

No matter in what part of the UNITED STATES your HOME state may be,

There's one thing everyone says you see,

And everybody I'm sure will remember that.

HOME is where you hang your hat!

Here’s a newly written one for Utah.  Could you write one for your state?? CD

Scouting on the Internet

Great Salt Lake Council

Divide audience into three parts and assign each apart.  Whenever their name is said, they are to respond as follows:

KEN - Bear leader!"

CLAIR - "Guide leader!"

SCOUT--- "Do your best!"

KEN Ekker was a Cub SCOUT Bear Den Leader. KEN was also a computer whiz. 

He was one of the first to get an e-mail address and encouraged others to get one too. He discovered that there were many SCOUTING sites. Sometimes he would communicate with someone and then find out he or she lived in a foreign country. Soon he was corresponding with other SCOUTERS all over the world. He discovered a SCOUTER in England. Her name was CLAIR and she was a SCOUT Leader for 8 & 9-year-old boys and girls. In England they are called Guides. They called themselves the Cellar Dwellers, because they met in the basement of an old church.

After KEN and CLAIR had corresponded for a while, CLAIR told KEN that she had always wanted to come and visit America. KEN invited her over, and soon CLAIR arrived at Salt Lake International Airport.. KEN, and his wife, Lee, had CLAIR stay at their house and took her all over to show her the tourist spots.

Utah has a completely different look and feel than England has. She was amazed at the mountains and canyons, the desert, the Great Salt Lake, and how few people there were in such a large area. She was surprised that she could visit three SCOUT shops for three different districts within 90 miles. Everyone was so friendly and kind to her that CLAIR loved it in Utah. When she left, she invited KEN & Lee to come to England where she could show them the sites.
