    • If the Scout relevancy of this thread is "could this happen to a Scout Unit?"  I say perhaps. BSA has officially made some decisions and adjustments in it's policies that are praised by some and ridiculed by others.  In this present situation, Mr. Phillips saw two groups with seemingly opposing opinions and (so he stated) tried to come between them to help prevent possible violent confrontation. In this he succeeded, but not the way he expected.   How would a Scout Unit react if confronted with a loud, verbal assault on it's merely being a Scout Unit?  I have heard of local Girl Scout, Boy Scout, Cub Packs being verbally abused because (pick an issue) while selling cookies and popcorn and (holiday) trees in front of stores.  Fortunately, nothing really bad happened, so it didn't get on the 9pm news.  But still....  Maybe that is the topic.....  
    • And I just finished the last patch to sew on too.  Knew I should have waited. BTW - really I mean thanks for catching that and letting me know.  Guess I'll have a vintage shirt now  
    • Actually there is a change: https://www.scoutshop.org/catalog/product/view/id/10182  
    • Would need to know what if anything the Council Training committee actually accomplished OR was it just a check the box committee (yep we met).  What is the charter of the group?  What are their goals?  What have they implemented or improved last 3 / 5 /7 years.  What do they actually do that helps the scouting program at the unit level?
    • I have never seen the purpose in this infrastructure of commissioners.  Scouting is not a college degree program. I would just like to see commissioners who actually are current on the programs.  When you have a "Doctorate" who doesn't know about the Eagle Project process they have no value added to units.
