CDnetScouts E-Mail List

Welcome to CDnetScouts


Thanks for joining the online community of Colonial District Scouters at CDnetScouts. Please take a few minutes to read this introductory note and then save it for reference later on. You'll need to have it, if you wish to unsubsribe from the list or stop delivery when you are away from your e-mail for a long period of time. A copy of this message will also be available at our website under the heading "e-mail".

As a member of this online community you will receive e-mails about Colonial District events and information that you can use in your Scouting program. You can also send e-mail to the list to share Scouting "how to" ideas, ask questions, and more. We hope that this list will serve as tool to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to the young people we serve.

Our rules are pretty simple:

  • In all e-mails be guided by the spirit of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

  • Congratulate in public, criticize in private (private e-mail).

  • Personal attacks on an individual are not acceptable behavior - discuss ideas, not personalities.

  • Share your ideas, be a friend to all.

  • Limit your e-mail to only those issues related to Scouting in the Colonial District.

  • No commercial solicitation or advertising - we want to avoid losing folks who would regard this as SPAM e-mail.

  • No political issues - we want to keep the list focused on information that helps deliver the program to the youth members.

E-mail exchanges can range from simple announcements to lively discussion of hot topics. As your moderator, I will try to help assure that we maintain a friendly online environment that exemplifies the best in living the Scout Oath and Scout Law.


You are responsible for keeping your e-mail address current. If you change you e-mail list and your mail bounces, you will be dropped from the list. To assure continuous participation, please unsubscribe before changing your address and then resubscribe using your new address

Please set your e-mail program to reply without including the e-mail that you are responding to. This will avoid long e-mails that requote information that everyone has already seen at least once.

Please set your e-mail program to limit the width of your messages to 72 lines. Some e-mail programs cannot read wider messages.

Please set your e-mail program to use plain text (Outlook users should avoid Word Mail, Stationary, etc.). Some e-mail programs cannot read messages that are in html, mime, Word format, etc.

Do not send attachments to the list. If you have a file that you would like to share, please send it to the Colonial District webmaster. I will post the file to our website at where it will be available to everyone. This will help avoid long e-mail download times for folks using a slower modem.


You will receive individual messages from the list. To instead receive digest versions of the messages, send the following command to
