Boys' Life Preview
Boys' Life magazine helps make your Scouting program and your Scouts excel. Research shows that boys who subscribe to the magazine advance farther, spend more time outdoors, and stay in Scouting longer than those who don't. There's something for everyone in Boys' Life. And everyone can receive the magazine every month.
Check out these exciting articles scheduled for publication in the January and February 2011 issues of Boys' Life.
Keith Baldassare owns the world record for most consecutive frontside ollies on a half-pipe. If the last part of that sentence was gibberish to you, don’t worry. February’s Boys’ Life article about skateboarding isn’t targeted to you, anyway. But rest assured that your guys will love reading this story that’s full of skateboarding tips from experts like Keith.
Building a Career
Legos are more than a hobby for Eagle Scout Gary McIntire. Those tiny plastic bricks are his career. As the master model builder for Legoland, Gary says Scouting helped him learn how to be a project leader and use his resources effectively—lessons that surely came in handy when he created a Lego replica of the presidential inauguration. Your guys can read more about Gary in the January issue.
The bass and northern pike were biting in the Canadian Boundary Waters when Pennsylvania Troop 222 came calling. They were there as part of the all-new fishing-intensive program operated by Northern Tier. The fish tale appears in the January issue, so toss it your Scouts’ way. They’ll bite.
