    • I have no trouble seeing over 1,000 registrations here.  As I said earlier, we have 11 girls in our pack, and as someone who worked school night presentations for several other packs, I saw a lot of girls coming in.
    • I think that there are definitely correct/appropriate options along this scale along with inappropriate ones.  I am still really not sure where the CO would be exerting their influence when it comes to advancement.  Other things, sure... If a CO wants the troop to always stop some where for Mass on Sunday, or require trips avoid holy days that is reasonable.  If a CO wants the troop to refuse to advance scouts that they deem irreverent or unclean simply because they don't meet some non-BSA specified standard, then that might be a step too far. 
    • The report from National last week showed around 50,000 girls registered.  My understanding is that is strictly paid registrations received from Councils.  Do you think National is not accurately reporting those numbers? 
    • Exactly. I think we'll see the shift in numbers the next two years as the program gets going and the paper registrants, if any, aren't a part of the picture as much. 
    • My son's old troop had two nice alternative camping structures, instead of the standard tents. They didn't use them all year round, but they had them for various uses.   One was a carport tent. It's main use was at summer camps, either as the standard weather coverall over the tables in case of rain or as a group tent where the scouts lined up their cots and slept in a single hut. The sides were lifted out and tied down for maximum ventilation and in case of bad weather, they could be brought in for extra coverage.  The other was rather cheap to build and used at summer camp or at Trappers in Kansas. Online I can only find it as a "Monkey Hut". Basically rebar in the ground, PVC pipes as ribs, and a tarp spread over it all with the appropriate tie downs. A self made Quonset hut for the scouts to use a group sleeping tent. And extendable with another hut added to the end.  What sorts of alternative camping structures does anyone else use?
