Boy Scouts Youtube Day

Lets try and get as many people on youtube as possible for the Birthday of the BSA. In case you did not know the birthday of the BSA falls on February 8. This year in particular is important because we are celebrating 100 years in case you didn't know already.

So lets get as many people on youtube as possible on this Day, this is going to require us to communicate this to a very large audience and very quickly. Maybe we could get a video on the front page of youtube, this will only happen if you tell everyone that you know. So lets spread the word through twitter, myspace, facebook, blogs, emails, text messages, phone calls, scout meetings, and through any other medium you can think of.

Lets not wait until the 8th to spread the word, lets start spreading it know.

This idea was taken from Scoutmaster Steve of A Scoutmaster's Blog and producer of Melrose Scouting Production Podcasts.
