"A Man of Destiny"

Accordingly,
it gives me
"Goose Bumps"
just
"Thinking About It!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Beauty"
of
"The Adult Program"
is
"The Ability"
to
"Act"
and or
"Put In To Practice"
"Experiences"
"Lessons Learned"
or
"Inspiration"
in a way
"The Boys Could Only Dream About!!"
 
Accordingly,
"In Traditional Scouting"
ages range from
"12 to 18"
with
"Only"
"Two Really Productive Years"
that
"One Could Take Effective Action"
and
"Even At That"
"The Scout Is Still Just A Kid"
without
"The Resources"
of
"A Fully Functioning Adult!!"
 
Case in point..
 
Assuming
"An Adult Troop"
goes to
Summer Camp
and
"Is Therefore"
using
"The Facilities"
giving
The Adult Scout
"First Hand Knowledge"
of
"The Situation!!"
 
That being the case,
"The Opportunity Exists" 
in
"A Round About Way"
for
"Inspiration"
and
"Immediate Follow Through"
based on
"Adult Resources"
for
"A Whole Host Of Possibilities"
concerning,
"Camp Improvements!!"
 
Accordingly,
"One Of The Biggest Problems"
with
"Fund Raising"
is
"Pitching The Project"
and or
"Explaining The Need"
in
"An Effective Way"
that would
"Motivate Someone To Donate"
because
"There Is No First Hand Experience!!"
 
But..
 
With Adult Troop Activities,
"The Potential"
for
"Project Resources"
goes
"Exponential"
as
"The Adult Troop"
uses
"The Facilities"
and
"Sees"
"First Hand"
"The Needs In Question"
and or
"Needs Unknown"
based on
"Active Participation!!"
 
Accordingly
"An Adult Troop"
of say
"20 Scouters"
would contain
as many as
"15 Different Skill Sets"
some being
Doctors, Lawyers, Plumbers, Carpenters
etc, etc, etc,
 
That being the case,
"Say For Example"
"The Plumber"
was
"At Camp"
and
"During The Course"
of
"His Experience"
he
"Had Occasion"
to
"Use The Facilities"
which were
"In A State Of Disrepair!!"
 
Accordingly,
he might say
"On His Own"
you know what
"This Is Nuts"
"I'll Send The Crew Out Next Week"
and
"Take Care Of Business!!"
 
Same might be true at
"The Rifle Range"
The Boat Dock
The Swimming Pool
The Kitchen
etc, etc, etc,
 
Point being.
"Instead of Talking About It"
"The Adults"
would be in a position to
"Just Do It!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Possibilities Are Endless!!"
 
Now..
 
While that's
"Not Necessarily The Goal"
it is
"A Rather Pleasant"
"A Fact Of Life"
based on
"The Adult World!!"
 
It's just like
"Buying A Car"
if you can't
"Touch It"
"Feel It"
and
"Taste It"
chances of
"Making The Sale"
are
"Slim to None"
but...
 
 
"Get The Guy Behind The Wheel"
and
"The Car Sells Itself!!"
 
Warmest Regards,
