This list was e-mailed to 369. We did not know how to contact Mr. Tobin and hope that they do not mind if we posted it to our web site.

I found this list is some stuff I inherited from the previous Scoutmaster. I assume it was put out by the BSA, but there is nothing like it in the current material that they provide in the Life to Eagle package.
