Archive for April, 2007

To make the Seeonee mail list management a tad easier (people can manage their own membership), and allow us to have an archive of the emails sent to the list, can I suggest that we use a Yahoo! Group (this is the same as the AustralianCubScouts group run by Russell for those also in that group)

To see how it goes I have set up a group called “Nillumbik_Seeonee” –
Nillumbik_Seeonee

While testing (and until we can get feedback on if this concept works, or if it sucks like a vacuum cleaner, anyone that posts to “Nillumbik_Seeonee@yahoogroups.com” should also send to the existing manual list.

The group settings are as follows;

  • Do you want the group to be listed in the Yahoo! Groups directory?
    – Yes, list the group
  • How can people join your group?
    – People can join only with my approval.
    {I’ll try to get some more moderators asap}
  • Who can post messages to your group?
    – Only group members. (Private discussion group)
  • Do you want to use group’s web features, such as photos, files, calendar and polls?
    – Yes, I want to use the group’s web features.
  • Who should the message archives be available to?
    – All members can view archives.

A campfire song that goes down very well;

Scout Stomp
(to the tune “We will Rock You” by Queen, words by Janet Brickhouse)

Sonny you’re in first school, taking on the world
Wanna grow up to be a good man someday?
Well we are the scouts, we’re what it’s all about,
Come on guys let’s give them a shout,

WE WILL, WE WILL SCOUT YOU!
WE WILL, WE WILL SCOUT YOU!

Maybe you like hiking, camping, fun
You want a place where you can shine and Do Your Best!
Well this is the place, put a smile on your face,
Wave our banner all over the place,

WE WILL, WE WILL SCOUT YOU!
WE WILL, WE WILL SCOUT YOU!
