Scouter Mike from Battlefields Council rejoins the podcast to talk about the Great 8 Challenge, an eight-week series of challenges for members of Scouts Canada hosted by Les Stroud (also known as Survivorman; you may have watched his long-running Discovery Channel show).

If your Group is participating, make sure to post their efforts online using the hashtag #SurviveWithLes; submit your challenge reports to Scouts Canada here, and keep tabs on the leaderboard — when it goes live — here.

Mike has a shout-out to offer to Rylan, a Venturer Scout who has been running D&D games for Mike’s Venturer Company.

He also has kudos to offer to Tim Fountain, the technical genius national virtual campfires. Mike and Tim will be doing weekly live discussion sessions every Thursday evening during the Great 8 Challenge on the Scouts Canada Discussion Group on Facebook.

And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
