History of the Trackers
Advancements can be a nightmare to track! So Dave Blodgett of Pack 1196 in
Manassas, VA, set to work developing an Excel-based Bear Achievement Tracker
that was designed specifically for tracking Bear Achievements and Electives.
This was the birth of the free Excel Cub Scout Trackers in September 1997.
Roxanne Prahser came across Dave's Bear Tracker in the fall of 1997 when she
was a new Wolf den leader and her husband was a Bear den leader. She asked
Dave's permission to duplicate his work for the other levels of Cub Scouts,
which of course, being the wonderful scouter that he is, he gave and our family of trackers began! Due to
numerous requests for similar trackers for girl scouts, Roxanne added trackers for all levels of Girl Scouts as well.
All trackers are Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and require either Microsoft
Excel 2000 or later or another compatible spreadsheet program (for trackers
compatible with older versions of Excel, please
and she will send you a version that is compatible with your version of Excel). Note that these spreadsheets are NOT compatible with Microsoft Works - if you do not own a compatible version of Microsoft Excel you must either purchase one or download OpenOffice, which includes an Excel-compatible spreadsheet program. All trackers are compressed in .zip format to reduce file size and decrease download time. If your computer cannot open .zip files, then you must download a .zip decompression program such as Winzip.
PDF versions are also available for manual tracking, and require a PDF
reader such as Adobe Reader.
Check back occasionally for the latest versions. Updates are released as
time permits to fix bugs and enhance the trackers. If you have a pop-up blocker, you will need to temporarily disable it to download these files.
If you have questions on any of the trackers, please take a look at the
Notes sheet first in the file for general information. Still lost? Then
for any questions on any of the trackers.
