Tonight I was invited by the Patrol that I am the Troop Guide for in W1-492-11 for their Patrol meeting between sessions.
They held their meeting at one of the Patrol members place of employment, Coffee Bean International. It was a neat meeting as they embodied the Scouting Spirit of learning something new. They acted like Tiger Cubs on a “Go See it”. It was a lot of fun and informative to learn how coffee goes from raw beans to a wonderful cup of Joe.
They held their meeting in the companies Coffee bar and the coffee was fantastic.
The Buffalo Patrol worked on their menu’s and Patrol presentation and then we held a short “Ticket Work shop” working out some of the kinks in their tickets and getting them focused in the right direction.
I am real happy with the progress the Patrol is making. They are quickly moving in the direction of a high performance team.
This is a great model for them to take back to their units. They are seeing first hand (assuming they have not before) what right looks like and how they can make their units better. I am certain that no matter what level they are coming from, this Wood Badge experience will make them better in their units and as a result they will all leave a lasting impact on Scouting. It makes me proud to be a part of this legacy building.
I can’t wait for their upcoming second session and assisting in the working of their tickets as a faithful Troop Guide.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
