14. Why a Troop Setting? Framework to practice leadership Translates to any Scouting program Days 1-2-3 = 3 weeks of troop meetings Days 4-5-6 = Outdoor experience You began this course as Cub Scouts. Several days from now your troop guides will be inducted into the Venturing Program. For most of the course though, you and the staff will be considered members of Gilwell Troop 1. A troop setting provides a good framework to practice the leadership skills introduced during the course. Be assured that the course content and leadership principles will be applicable to all Scouter working in the movement, and will provide a common foundation of leadership skills to be used in all program areas. There will be 3 troop meetings this week end, one you participated in this morning. These represent three weeks in the life of a Scouting unit. The final portion of the course--the outdoor experience, parallels the sort of activity a Pack, Troop, Team or crew would build toward for the final week of a month long program.

15. The Gilwell Gazette Provides access to information. Tells what’s going on. Is distributed each day. The Gilwell Gazette is the newspaper of the Wood Badge course..it is distributed daily with the intent of letting you all know as much as possible about the inner workings of the course. You will find events for the day, stories about people, and articles submitted by your Patrol Scribes…..Beware though, the Gilwell Gazette will not be able to replace the information that you Patrol Leaders will gather at the Patrol Leader Council Meetings.The Gilwell Gazette is the newspaper of the Wood Badge course..it is distributed daily with the intent of letting you all know as much as possible about the inner workings of the course.

16. Patrol Project Each patrol plans and produces Covers a universal aspect of Scouting Presentation involves all members Is presented on Day Five Earlier today everyone saw the exhibit that your Troop Guides developed. At the Patrol Leaders Council today, each patrol will be challenged to produce a project of its own. The project must illustrate some universal aspect of Scouting that is clearly associated with Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, and Venturing. It must consist of a self-explanatory display and an oral presentation and all patrol members must participate. Patrols will present their exhibits on the fifth day of the course.Earlier today everyone saw the exhibit that your Troop Guides developed.

17. Wood Badge Ticket A Wood Badge tradition Action plan for your goals A plan to take home One of the great traditions, and common fears of Wood Badge is the ticket. In Baden-Powells day, those in the military were expected to pay their own way back to England at the end of their service. To be “thrifty” soldiers nearing completion of their duties would seek assignments at posts increasingly closer to their home…A process known as working your ticket. During this course each of you will be asked to develop a ticket, a list of goals that will allow you to use your new leadership skills in ways that will strengthen your units back home. Details of the ticket will be discussed at the Patrol Leader Council and during the presentation on Living the Values this afternoon.One of the great traditions, and common fears of Wood Badge is the ticket.
