Public Relations and Your Unit- Check out the booklet on newspaper, radio, PSA's, Photos, Web sites, Cable and TV. This has a lot of info that will help you decide who, what, when, where and why to get the most out of your stories.

Also, new is Planning and Leading Venturing Skills to teach the Cub Scouts their Advancements and Electives. I have listed what the Cub and Webelos Scouts need to cover for their advancement and also noted the Venture award requirements to see where and how they might overlap. By using this booklet the Venture Crews can learn how to serve the younger scouts and at the same time earn their advancement by sharing their knowledge.

A simple way to do your Rain Gutter Regattas is to get 1 long plastic gutter and cut it in half. You will need need 4 plastic end caps -- 2 left and 2 right
used a quarter turn 1/2" brass threaded Hose Bibb from B & K Mueller NSF61-9 with red knob. At Home Depot it is $7.59 C244-231 Inside the gutter I have a CPVC plastic Female Apapt. size 1/2" NTBCO #4703 at Home Depot A-232-475 which is 58 cents and then really caulk it inside and out.
I leave a large Home Depot orange bucket below the faucet in case someone decides to turn it on. I use a wooden base to hold the 2 gutters in.
