After 16 years, the Toadie program was canceled due to Ohio Amended Senate Bill 187 CHILD PROTECTION STANDARDS

When 369 called the Ohio Attorney General's Office for help with this new bill they stated that they could not help us and that we should higher an attorney. Of course 369 could not afford this. Therefore, we no longer work with youth under the age of 14 and not in High School. This coupled with our "Two Deep Leadership" policy would put us in total complinance the law.

We are sorry to do this but Crew 369 can no longer financially afford to work with those under 14.

Our standards for child protection that are already in place generally forbid any single volunteer to have "unsupervised access to children on a regular basis". Therefore, we do not expect this law to have any serious impact on the measures that are already in place for youth protection. however, we wish to emphasize The importance of always maintaining two-deep leadership: avoid, except in emergencies, "unsupervised access to children". You can anticipate that we will remind you of the law is requirements on an on-going basis in the newsletter, our web page, at rountablles and at training courses.

Should you have any questions on how Boy Scouts of America and the Simon Kenton Council's "Two Deep Leadership" policy is effected by Bill 187 contact Andy Patterson at +1 (614) 436-7200.

What is a "Toady:"

When I was a youth Explorer I was fortunate enough to have three mentors. Each of these men took me under their proverbial wing and taught me, Engineering Computer Information & Science, Electrical Engineering, and Group Dynamics. I can truly state that I would not be where I am today if it was not for these gentlemen. While a youth Explorer I attempted to utilize the skills I learned to educate the newest members of the Post. It was most gratifying. However, when the term "Corder's Toadies" was coined it was done in a negative tone by the UNIX group's archrival the VMSers. But as my Grandfather always said: "When life gives you lemons, make lemon aide." For the rest of my youth and all of my adult life in Exploring we had "Toadies". However, with Venturing Crew 369 in its infantcy the ability to have Toadies would be almost a decade away. Since Venturing Crew 369 is so closely associated with Boy Scout Troop 369 it was inevitable that the two units would form a symbiotic relationship. With the bulk of the Venturing Crew having successfully obtaining the rank of Eagle it made since that the Venturers would each adopt a Scout [no more than 10% of the Troop can be a Toady and no more than one Toady per Eagle/Ranger]. The Scout can be a Toady upto his 14th birthday. Once the Scout is 14 he can become an Venturer. The Venturer would then aide the young Scout on their Eagle Trail. Ok, being a tad bit greedy, it is the hopes that the Troop will feed membership into the Crew in the same way that the Cubs feeds the Troop. Each Toady is permitted into the Crew's room before the Troop Meeting and during the Troop Game. The Toady wears the Crew White Primary cord along with the Crew Neckerchief embossed with a Toad Patrol Patch and two Venturing Vs on their collar. This symbolizes his association with the older Venturers. I must admit that I never foresaw the energy and enthusiasm that the Toadies put forth nor the place of honor the other Troop members held on being a Toady. I asked some of the Toadies to write a short paragraph on what it means to be a Toady, to them: See The July 1995 issue of the ExpNews.
