The MacScouter's Big Book of Skits

377 Skits in this Big Book


The MacScouter's Big Book of Skits is the result of compiling skits from various Internet Scouting sources, and lots of creative people. This is the first major revision of the Big Book, incorporating more than 150 new skits. At last count there are 377 skits in the Big Book -- this may be the biggest collection of skits in the world. With a little luck, the book will be updated irregularly, as more material comes in.

The Big Book started with the Scouts-L Skits FAQ, and a few other small compilations of skits. People have sent me individual skits and groups of skits. My sincere thanks to Merl Whitebook, the most prolific contributor to this volume. My thanks also to Hans Hussman, Bob Jenkins, the US Scouting Service Project, the Australian Scouting Association, and a cast of other characters.

R. Gary Hendra, The MacScouter, January 1997
