Tie one on.....

"Every Scout ought to be able to tie a knot. To tie a knot seems a simple thing, and yet there are right and wrong ways of doing it, and Scouts ought to know the right way.  Very often it happens that lives depend on a knot being properly tied."   --  Baden- Powell . 

The business of rope and cordage represents one of humankind's oldest technical accomplishments.  This skill coupled with the knots that hold it all together are part of the building blocks of civilization.  Even in these times of bungee cords and Velcro a bit of cord tied properly can do a better job. 

While this might seem a trivial pursuit to some, this knowledge is  shared and prized among Scouts, campers, sailors, climbers, craftsmen and many more in their own special applications. There are knots for both function and decorative needs. 

Knot necessarily so.....
