    Do you know of any "Celebrity" or "Famous" Scouters

    With the addition of the HRH OH I was wondering....

    Does anyone know of or have in their Group/District/County any “celebrity” or “famous” Scouters, be they Leaders of Exec Members, that are actively involved with day to day Scouting?

    we have people in county, in my district and others, who have MBEs etc.

    Does me being in the Guinness book of records count? lol.

    Rule 66. A map and compass offers no protection against getting horribly lost.

    I think he has done bits and bobs - Not overly sure. I've heard his name banded about before.

    Depends how you deem 'active', Maitland Mackie (as in the ice-cream folks) is District President i thinks (could be Honorary) and is on the exec of a group.

    Patrick Stewart isn't actively involved in Scouting unfortunately, but he was kind enough to record the above message for our 60th Anniversary back in July.

    i know ewan too but i've never met him! so that makes at least two of us who know him, which must push him up in the celeb stakes/league.

    someone once said i was a celeb but i think they were havin' a larf or just mistaken.

    oh and i've just remembered....i know a roger too and i'd say he was a celeb.

    cordially yours, TM

    Can i change the thread slightly to "Do you know any Scouts that ARE going to be famous". As one of my ex-Cubs is the Senior National schools boys Javelin champion and his aim is to compete in the 2016 Olympics. Real nice lad who only got discovered when he had not put his name down for anything for the school sports day. They put him down for javelin to fill the sheet and apparently the PE teachers were stood there speechless with open mouths, as he broke the school record on his first throw. His name is Steven Turnock. Come to think of it i do not think he ever achieved his athletics badge.

    Cubs don't care how much you know, but they need to know how much you care.
