John, I like your enthusiasm and inclusive philosophy. Its nice to see vendors and suppliers not denigrated. It is also nice to have a forum for the competitive adult pineheads who may or may not be in scouts.

Thanks for the kind words! Let's face it, most cub scouts parents do most of the work anyway, and a few really catch the bug! I think we are a group of people still living out their childhood. Some vicariously some just being a bit off. We seem to be a generation of people with a child shaped void and for a few of us this fits. For me it all started out with just wanting to win, I drooled my butt off when that pine block came home! I am a very competitive guy. But it was weird because I didn't want to teach Tanner my "second place is the first loser mentality" So I found this as a vent and it's a blast and it's great finding more like myself! Thanks for the feedback. I am hoping the boards will be jumping once pinewood season rolls around!
