Scoutmaster Minute Review
Chuck Norris is a really tough guy, but even he says “Might isn’t always right.” One day after filming, Chuck went into a Texas café and sat in a booth. A little later a big burly local came in and in an intimidating voice said “YOUR SITTING IN MY BOOTH!”. Chuck did not like his tone and he knew he could whip him but he decided to move. Soon the big Texan approached Chuck’s booth. Chuck thought, “Oh no, some local tough guy who wants to make a name for himself. The big Texan said, “You’re Chuck Norris, right?” Chuck nodded. “You could have whipped me good a few minutes ago. Why didn’t you? Chuck responded, “What would it have proved?” The Texan thought about it and then stuck out his hand and said “No hard feelings” Chuck shook his hand and said, “None”. By getting up and moving to another booth Chuck not only avoided confrontation he made a new friend; he actually won by losing. So remember what tough guy Chuck Norris says, “Might isn’t always Right.”

Devon Thompson’s Eagle project.
Just a quick reminder that we will be finishing up my Eagle project tomorrow September 26th at Evergreen Lutheran Church(lower lot). We will be moving sand, gravel and rubber chips into the playground area. We will start at 9:00 am and plan to be finished by 3:00 pm. There will be drinks and food provided. I will unfortunately not be there until a little later due to work obligations. I will have someone from scouts in charge though until I arrive. Please come help and earn some service hours while your at it. I hope to see you all there.
