1910--Legacy Troops--2010
Baden Powell

"A Man of Destiny"

Accordingly,
"All That"
took place
"Last Summer!!"
 
Which...
"Is All Well And Good"
because
"Certainly"
it is
"A Workable Plan!!"
 
However..
 
There was,
"One Thing Missing"
which
"Finally"
"Hit Me"
like
"A Bolt Of Lightning!!"
on
"The Way To Church"
last
"December!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Legacy Plan"
"Assumes"
 
 
"An Old Scouter"
might want to
"Re-Engage Scouting"
and
"Become"
 
 
"Scoutmaster"
and or
"Some Other Form"
of..
 

 
"Adult Leader"
for
"A Legacy Troop"
teaching
"A Troop Of Young Boys!!"
 
And while,
"This Is Commendable"
and
"Would Fill The Bill For Some"
it
"Assumes"
"The Only Role"
for
"An Old Scouter"
is in
"A Leadership Position!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Bolt Of Lightning"
aka
"The Missing Piece"
was
"The Extension"
of
"The Legacy Troop Plan"
to
"Include"
"Adult Troops!!"
 
I mean..
"How Cool Is That!!"
 
Point being..
 
"The Adult Troop"
is
"The Perfect Solution"
for
"All The Old Scouters"
who
"Just Want To Be Scouts"
and..

 
"Follow The Trail"
without...
 

 
"The Responsibilities"
of
"Troop Leadership!!"
 
Accordingly,
there are...

 

"Millions & Millions"
of
"Old Scouters"

 
 
"World Wide"
that might..
 
 
"Re-Join"
 
 
"The Ranks"
so they can
"Re-live"
their
"Scouting Experience"
and
"Just Be Boys!!"
 
And so..
 
Like I said,
"How Cool It That!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Adult Troop"
would work just like..

 
 
"A Boy Troop"
with
"Perhaps"
"Certain Modifications"
i.e.
Merit Badges
etc.
 
But...
 
You would still ..
 
 

"Go Up The Ranks"
"Providing An Opportunity"
to
"Re-Learn Your Scout Skills"
i.e.

 
 
"Pioneering"
 
 

"Cooking"

 
 
"Camping"
etc, etc, etc,
"All In"
"An Adult Environment"
with
"Like Minded Individuals!!"
 
Accordingly,
"For Some"
they could
"Become"
 
  
 
"Double Eagles"
and
"For Others"
they could
"Become"
 

 
"Eagle Scouts"
for
"The First Time!!"
 
Finally...
 
"Making Good"
on...
 
 
"Their Childhood Dream"
to...

 
 
"Fly High"
with
"The Eagles!"
 
And then..
 
How about,
"Those Who Never Joined"
but
"Wish They Had!!"
 
And...
 
Let's not forget about
"The Cubs"
who...
 
 

"Couldn't Wait"
but
"Never Flew Up"
"As They Say"
like..

 
 
"President Bush!!"
 
Accordingly,
"Think You Would Be Surprised"
"How Many"
"Might Join The Ranks"
to
"Fulfill"
"Unfinished Dreams!!"
 
And..
 
"That's Just The Half Of It!!"
 
Not only would it
"Provide An Opportunity"
for
"Like Minded Adults"
to
"Gather Once A Week"
and
"Live"
 
 
"The Scouting Experience"
thus
"Opening The Door"
to..

 
 
"Adult Group Adventures"
i.e.
Organized
Hiking
Camping
and
"Associated Activities!!"
 
And..
 
Let's not forget about..

 
"Summer Camp!!"
 
I mean..
"How Cool Would That Be!!"
 
But...
 
"Best of All"

 
"An Adult Merit Badge Program"
would
"Provide An Opportunity"
to..
 
 
"Expand Your Horizons"
in..

 

 
"A Host Of Fields"
"Creating"
a
"Here-To-Fore"
"Unavailable Opportunity"
for
"Adults"
to work with
"Top Professionals In The Field!!"
 
And..
 
Who knows..
"What Could Happen Then!!"
 
Warmest Regards,
