Happy New Year 2010

Year 2009 had past and 2010 begins. Have you fulfilled your resolutions for 2009? What are your resolutions for 2010? If you don’t mind, you can share them in the comments.

On behalf of the Group, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2010. Found an interesting New Year fireworks, made using dominoes. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Christmas is celebrated by many, including non-Christians. It is a time for family and friends to gather and meet and gift exchanges are usually one of the highlights. More on Christmas on Wikipedia.

On behalf of the Group, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Enjoy the following Indian style 12 days of Christmas, performed by animated popstar, Boymongoose and Indian boyband.

Scouting – PRICELESS!

Remember those “priceless” Mastercard commercials? Here is a video on “priceless” scouting.

Enjoy!

Scouty Videos

Today, I have created a new section called “Scouty Videos” under our Resources area. This will collate all the scouting related videos that have been posted recently and moving forward. Do have a look!

Scout Law Videos

Did you know the Scout Law is different in different countries? Do you know how many Scout Laws were there in the first Scouting for Boys?

Answer: There were actually 9 Scout Laws which were as follows:

  1. A Scout’s honour is to be trusted.
  2. A Scout is loyal.
  3. A Scout’s duty is to be useful and to help others.
  4. A Scout is a friend to all, and a brother to every other Scout, no matter to what social class the other belongs.
  5. A Scout is courteous.
  6. A Scout is a friend to animals.
  7. A Scout obeys orders.
  8. A Scout smiles and whistles.
  9. A Scout is thrifty.

Over time and countries, these Scout Laws were modified for each country’s usage. A comprehensive source of information on all the Scout Law of the various countries can be found at Wikipedia.

Also, enjoy some commercials produced by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA for short) that were found on YouTube.

Scouting for Boys on BBC

Found a documentary on Scouting for Boys, featured on BBC via YouTube. Quite interesting to watch but it will take a while of your time. The video is broken down into 6 parts as shown below.

Enjoy!

The Little Boy Scout

Just saw this promotional Singapore Scouting video on HQ website. I think it’s not bad, so do spare 3 minutes to have a look at it.

Enjoy!

Funny Scout Skit

Saw this funny skit, so would like to share it with everyone. Enjoy!

Interesting Scouting Videos

Would like to showcase some interesting scouting videos that I have found online.

Boy Scout Commercial – Helpful
This is a 30 commercial about Boy Scouting featuring the Scout Law point – helpful. It is comical and shows how far a Scout may go to be helpful. (Note: Helpful is one of the Scout Law in the USA but not Singapore)

Cub Scouting Commerical (Door Lock)
Here is a humorous commercial promoting Cub Scouting. A father and son are working on one of the Cub Scout requirements by fixing the lockset on the back door.

“The Truth About Scouting” BSA promo
A 60-second spot for the Boy Scouts of America, first showing the public’s perception of scouting, then the real thing. (For some reason it’s very choppy, like stop-frame, but that wasn’t intended. I don’t know why YouTube is doing that.)

Happy New Year 2009!

Would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2009!
