Alec 2016 Winter Band Concert

Alec's first symphonic band concert of his Sophomore year. Three tracks, holiday spirit. Pardon the audio; the mic picks up the HVAC almost better than the band. One of these days I'll just run a line into the mixer.

Facebook for Scouting Units

A slideshow from a few years ago I put together going over the basics of Facebook for Scouting Units - Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing Crews and more.   Handy information for all levels of units.

Interesting Eagle Bench Project Plans

I've seen a lot of Eagle project benches - these are some nice, rustic artistic benches with a great design and easy construction.  They're free standing - unless you attach them via concrete and angle iron.

Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center Photos and Review

We went to the the Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center this weekend with our Scout Troop.  Enjoyable afternoon - smaller place than I'd expected for the family side, but still good fun.  Follows are some wide angle photos of the place from the corners so you can get an idea of what it looks like.

Yes, the wide angle 'action camera' has massive distortion at the sides - you can see the poles and walls circling around.  I think it's pushing 170 degrees of view so distortion can't be helped; and that's the style these days with the kids.  Didn't get a chance to do a trip down the slide or similar to get some real action footage and didn't have a body mount to do anything cool, so you get to see static photos.  Clear enough for a mid-range durable camera!
