    • Not sure about other councils, but here in Central Florida we were given a number of 1004 girls last month.  I know we picked up 11 in our pack, and that was a small number compared to some of the others in our district.  The tell will be how many of those girls continue the entire school year, or indeed, how many have even attended a meeting.
    • I watched a facebook live from my local council yesterday and the numbers given was 3,000 and something boys registered in the council as of end of September.  The number of boys registered was 5 more than at the same time last year.  The number of girls that had registered as of the end of September was 285 if I remember correctly.  Also over 60% of the adults registered had completed the new youth protection.  In my district 71% had completed the new youth protection.   
    • It's like our Venturing registration (a.k.a. paper crews) spawned an evil twin (a.k.a. paper membership) 12 years later! I'll spare you the details. Bottom line: registration "numbers" are a bold-faced lie. To whom it may concern ... in any report from your council or national, insist on tallies of paid registrations or throw the report back in the exec's face. You would do well to call your council president and let him/her know what's going on. (Ours was in our troop, so I didn't need to go far to report shenanigans.)
    • Hey, everyone else's mileage may vary.  I can only point to what I felt that my council did that feels wrong. And it could truly be a glitch. Course I share this council with at least two other posters here that I know of. *eyeballs them*  It could also be a way someone (at some level in the org) is trying to bring cub scouts in. Here, a try before you buy program. No risk at all since it is so close to the end of the year. And if you're hooked, you pay the fees for the new year.  Honestly, I feel it's more the enticement to try it out for those parents who might be sitting on the fence. 
    • Hmm, the BSA was caught in a scandal something like this 20 years ago with the Learning for Life program. The inflated numbers were significant, but I don't remember how much. I seemed to remember they got sued.  Barry
