#85: Scouting History Data Crunching With Mike Clinch

http://www.scoutpatchcollectors.com Mike Clinch is a great example of a Scouter and collector who is willing to invest hundreds of hours of his own time into building something for others. A few years ago he published an amazing two volume set of books detailing in color the merger history of all Boy Scout councils and OA lodges. Teaming up with the likes of Bill Topkis, Jeff Morley, Bob Sherman and others he is now helping to expand that work to include camps. By allowing us to visually understand the sometimes complicated merger history of BSA councils his work is like somebody sharing the answers to the homework problem. Only with his skill as a geographer the maps and charts he makes are so much better than anything I've even. Add to the mix OA section mergers and his project keeps growing. Best of all he is not profiting from any of this but rather proceeds of the printed books are donated back to Scouting. As you can tell I'm a huge fan and glad to have him on the show and let...

Episode 79 is the audio of that patch collecting talk that I gave to about two-dozen Scouts ranging from fresh Tenderfoots to high school aged Eagles. I know that many other people have been in this situation. Tasked with creating a 30-40 minute talk on a hobby that not that easy to translate. After getting some advice from others my spin was to focus more on the "why" rather than the "how". I tried to make connections with the Scouts through their participation in the program and show how easy it was to use the memorabilia to walk back in time. I would appreciate any feedback and likewise feel free to take what I've shared and use it if you are ever in that situation. I discovered that anyone born after 1996 is referred to as Generation Z so my goal was to try and speak on their level and ...
