want to post my wants list and perhaps also sell some
of my extra Scouting items. How do I do this, and which
group(s) is/are appropriate for this?"

A. 1. Describe EXACTLY what you have. Don't use abreviations
or slang terms for your items, many people may not be understand
them.

2. Describe WHAT you want in trade for the item(s).
Money, patches in trade, or whatever.

3. Post YOUR email address and ASK THAT PEOPLE INTERESTED
IN YOUR ITEM(S) PLEASE REPLY TO *YOU* INSTEAD OF THE NEWSGROUP.

If you only want USA respondents, post it to rec.scouting.usa;
if you only want Girl Guide/Scouting respondents, post it to
rec.scouting.girl+guide; if you want WORLDWIDE respondents,
post it to rec.scouting.misc.

Do not cross-post within rec.scouting.*
