    • Though not appropriate for a motivational quote, I still like to recite this mantra in regards to how to handle troublesome issues.  Since someone opened the pandora/tolkien box. When in trouble,
      When in doubt,
      Run in circles,
      Scream and shout Found in various works of Robert A. Heinlein
    • I really can't blame the scout for being a little miffed if your son didn't really want the position, but ran only to oppose him. A person might take that personally. 
    • As an SM I appreciate when informed of this kind of parental interference. I would find it tough to call out the CB directly on this if more than a few hours so I would make a general staement for parents to keep hands in pockets (HIP) and don't interfere with any petrol, dont offer any solutions and dont fill leadership vacuums.  The CM may have the idea that leaders (PLs) eat last and stay in the eating area until all duties are complete and also help those who are struggling to get done. Even so its not his role to enforce his philosophy on a Patrol or even offer this up.
    • Ok, if the dad is jumping in then it's definitely a talk to SM. time.  
    • Well, now it's late April.   We know now the girls youth program will be the same as the boys program, and that troops may be chartered as concurrent committee or two separate committees by the chartered partner.  Do we have any updates on where the Order will go? My one thought is "separate but equal" in the honor camping organization will see National fighting in the court of public opinion on a Title IX lawsuit. It may get thrown out of federal court, but it'll be a publicity struggle, and we all know how BSA has performed in recent court of public opinion battles.  Now, if the suit is against a local council in a state court...and it's the right state...KATEY Bar the Door.  ICS.

      My sons are choosing their summer camp merit badges.  Son #1 -- Camping, Forestry, Wilderness Survival.  Son #2 -- Astronomy, Nature and one TBD.  I like their choices. Hope they get good counselors.

      We road tripped to the Burpee Museum in Rockford, IL for their Archaeology merit badge class.  The museum has Jane, a juvenille T-Rex and an interesting display of Triceratops-type skulls.  They also have a paleontology lab, a lot of fossils and the museum runs trips to Montana and Utah.
