To commend someone on an exceptional accomplishment or good deed, Troop 71 says "BULLY!".

Why?  Because we are part of the Theodore Roosevelt Council. The word "bully" was an adjective used during Teddy Roosevelt's time, and often said by him, meaning "first-rate", similar to today's "awesome". Troop 71 honors TR by adopting that phrase.

So, whenever you have the chance, yell it loud and proud: "BULLY!" 

Fun Fact: U.S. Aircraft carrier CVN-71 is named for TR!
