Fun Can Keep The Adults Comming Back Too

From: Steve Beluch
Subject: Special Awards

To all my electronic friends and Scouting brothers and sisters:

These are a collection of different awards for different occasions, different jobs or those special people. These are just a beginning for you to build on. As a scouter you will soon learn to adapt and to use the resources available to you. All I ask is that as you advance your own collection and add to your list that you don't forget me. This list was and continues to be made from the ideas and adaptations from folks just like yourselves. Send me your ideas so that I might add on to this growing list.

Remember these are A W A R D S. How you make the presentation is just as important as the award themselves. So ham it up!! Especially with some of the more humorous awards. Most require about 5 minutes of your time to make, most even less. If it costs you money then you flunk Scouting 101.

I hope you enjoy these and please don't hog them all for yourself.
