Last month, we discovered that one of the keys to keeping boys in the Cub Scouting program is advancement. Both Amy and Aaron know first-hand that this can sometimes be a daunting task, so we invited Scoutbook inventor, Shawn Jackson, to the show to talk with us about the importance of advancement and how the Scoutbook app may be the perfect solution for keeping up with everyone’s achievements and awards.
So you (hopefully) recruited lots of boys last fall into your den. Liz Bullock is the advancement chair for Pack 130 in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, and she joins us for a spirited discussion on figuring out how to keep them coming back week after week. Spoiler alert: Listen for a tip Liz provides that made Aaron do a happy dance during the interview!
@cubcast follower Jake@getbackupagain1 sent us a tweet asking if a new den leader can write-off the supplies he purchases as tax deductions. Because there is not a simple “yes” or “no” answer, we invited tax expert and legal counsel for the BSA, Russ McNamer, to the show to help us navigate this complicated topic and make it sound, well, less complicated.
