In looking at posts from last year, I found a post about my 2012 Goals that I created. These are based around my Wood Badge Training. I realized that I have not communicated an update for a very very long time.
Please read the post so you get the gist of what I was trying to carry out with these ticket items.
1)Lose Weight: Target date missed by a mile. I really wanted to lose weight. I am basically the same as I was then. I went on Medifast for 90 days and really lost weight. However, in the end, I did not meet my goal. I know what I need to do, I just need to do it.
2) Get new Cubmaster & Ast Cubmaster. I got a Cubmaster and she’s off to Wood Badge 2013. (Which as of this posting the 2nd weekend is this weekend. She is an Owl!) I did not get an ACM, but that’s ok. The switchover was on April 6th.
3) Training Plan for Pioneer District. I am still working on that. This weekend actually we are holding ITOLS at the Camporee. The District stopped doing that about 10 years ago. The Council via a Task Force is working on getting more people Trained. So, this is a work in process. I am happy with the way this is going overall. I have also teamed-up with another District to put on/host a Cubscout Den/Pack Training Day in the fall. They did it last year and I was very happy of how it went.
4) The Bobwhite Patrol of W1-492-11 and getting their Beads! Very happy to report that six out of seven earned their Beads. One Bobwhite went onto staff W1-492-12 as a Troop Guide. Very happy!
As for the other goals that were not a Ticket Item. I have signed up as a Merit Badge Counselor for Ham Radio, Chess and Graphic Arts. I am playing more with my Ham Radio. Last year during a Cubmaster Hike during JOTA I brought the Radio with me and we worked a few stations.
So, two of my ticket items were met and finished. Two are needing work. Wood Badge is never over. You complete a ticket, create a new one and move on.
