TICKET TO RIDE Decks, trucks, bearings, and grip tape? (Don’t worry if you’re left scratching your head.) In April, Scouts will channel their inner Andy Macdonald and learn all about the gear used in the growing sport of skateboarding—from high-priced to budget items, including a guide for buying the right-size board.


ZOO’S WHO Have you ever told a Scout that his Eagle project could potentially lead him down a career path? That’s the story behind Rick Schwartz’s tale, featured in the March issue. Rick earned his Eagle by doing rehabilitation work at an area animal hospital. Now he’s got his dream job—a zookeeper at the famed San Diego Zoo! Your Scouts can read all about Rick’s job and how his hard work in Scouting paved the way.
