The TMR Museum’s next webinar will be on Rock Lake located at the western side of TMR.

Our seventeenth webinar is scheduled for May 27, 2021 at 7 p.m. EDT. The topic is “A History of Rock Lake”

Once known as Canfield Pond, Rock Lake has featured in the memories of hundreds of thousands of Boy Scouts since the founding of Camp Brooklyn in 1928. This history of Rock Lake will look millions of years into the past to uncover the origin of the rocks that give Rock Lake its name, to the Native Americans who hunted in the area and established a shelter above the lake, and finally to the scouts who swam and paddled the lake. Scouts learned the song that begins: “Round the shores of dear old Rock Lake Camps encircling lie, Nestled close to Wooded hillsides Charming every eye.”

Your guide will be Michael Drillinger, chairman of the TMR Scout Museum. Michael took his first dock test in Rock Lake in 1969. He was the Assistant Waterfront Director there in 1974 and 1975.

Scouting Hot Finds Radio Podcast #96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides

Jason Spangler has created another podcast for Scouting Hotfinds Radio #96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides With Wiatt Williamson.

He explains

Wiatt Williamson has cracked the code on how to write a Scouting memorabilia guide book. In his years in the hobby he has written over a dozen guides for Order of the Arrow lodges, councils and camps. In this interview he shares the blueprint and makes an offer to share his easy to use template with everyone out there. I think that his idea can be a powerful positive force for the hobby. Imagine if in your state there was a free PDF for all CSPs (David McIntyre) or for the camps that have been part of your council’s legacy through mergers. If you write it they will collect it to twist a line from a classic movie. You can email Wiatt Williamson with questions about the template.

Listen to “#96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides With Wiatt Williamson” on Spreaker.

What guide would you create?

Here is a link to Eagle Peak Stores Collecting Guides Wiatt mentions in the podcast.
