Welcome Scouters and other submitters
This section is for sites of BSA Varsity Scouting groups.
Keep in mind that this is an edited directory. The Editors are all scouters who have volunteered in the ODP. They have developed guidelines for the placement and description of scouting sites. Please do them a good turn - by reading and following these guidelines.
The format of the directory is to start with "Varsity Scouting".
The descriptions are edited to disclose the content of the site, the editor''s question is, "what is on the site" - does the site have a photo gallery, activity calendar, leader contacts, etc.
Mission statements, puffery, such as "Greatest Site in America!!! " ; "**Best group this side of the Missouri**" etc., will be edited out.
Here is what the editors are looking for in your submission:
Example of Title:
Team 123 - Springfield, Illinois
Example of Description:
Includes leader contacts, meeting times and locations, calendar of events, midi music, interactive forms, downloadable forms, and links
Please describe what type of information is presented.
Do Not use the description to present information.
For example, a statement "Our group meets Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. at the downtown scout hall on Pine Street"
will be edited out,
and the editor will substitute "meeting time and location".
By following these guidelines you will speed the processing of your submission''s entry into the ODP Directory.
Yours in Scouting - 1st ODP Scout Troop
