If you have something that you think belongs here, please let us know.

Files to create the 3.5" (w) x 2" (h) Scout name cards

ScoutCards.doc is a Word sort/merge document used to create name cards with Scout names.  This file assumes that you will print to Avery clean edge business cards (Item #8873.) 

ScoutNameDB.xls is the source file for Scout names that the sort/merge document uses.

RankLabels.doc is the file used to create rank labels for the name cards.  This file assumes that Office Depot white return labels for inkjet printers 1/2" x 1 3/4" (Item #612-191) are printed, but other types of labels may also work.  A rank label is attached to a Scout name card to designate the Scout's rank: Tenderfoot, 1st Class, etc.
