Literally!¬† As Scouting in Central Escarpment Council works to integrate and support the Areas, there is a NEW, IMPROVED, (ah heck, add some more adjectives) BLOG maintained at the Council level.¬† There are breakdowns by Area (and yes, Wellington is there as a category!), as well as by section and activity.¬† It’s also hosted with our own servers, and you’ll find speed is much improved as well.¬† I will be continuing to maintain the new blog, though others will be posting as well (the other 7 areas and the Council Commissioner come to mind ūüôā )!¬† So, please bookmark the NEW location, and if you’re using the RSS feeds, make sure you add yourself to the new blog at:

Happy Scouting in the¬†new Scouting Year,¬†and¬† I’m off to post the 30 or 40 blog entries that haven’t happened as we reinvented ourselves!
