    • Well, its not ALL about the boys or girls.  That sounds nice but if the grown folk aren't enjoying themselves and are miserable, then the kids won't have a good time and will be miserable, too.
    • As often mentioned on this forum. Scouts Canada youth membership and professional employment has dramatically declined. Found this, see link below. Source: A lot of data in graphs, tables, links from Scouts Canada, but what I found missing was the Cost of Scouting per scout by year. http://yates.ca/sc/history/membership_national.htm
    • I wear my Eagle knot, and none others. (Not even sure what knots I might have earned, though, District Award of Merit, and Silver Beaver, are among them.) It is all about the youth. Not about me. I have at least 8 Eagle mentor pins.  (Our troop has had the practice of only having an Eagle presenting a single Mentor Pin.  Eagles one per  I wear none of them. Those who need or want to know, they know.
    • I have 23 and I wear them all.  Folks forget that "once official always official."  Those who don't like will just have to not like it.  But, since most of the people who have a bunch of knots are getting old and will die off soon, and many of those knots are no longer available they won't have to not like it for long.  Since uniforms are no longer required and are only encouraged it really doesn't matter.  My knots show a life long journey through scouting.  From my Eagle Scout Knot, Tiger Cub Group Coach Knot, to the Spurgeon Knot and the Sea Badge.  Along the way I influenced two Eagle Scout Sons, 1-Eagle Scout Grandson, Two Law Enforcement Explorer Post Captains, 5- Two Bead Woodbadgers, 3-Three Bead Woodbadgers, 2-Four Bead Woodbagers, 2-Silver Beavers, 1-Heroism Award Recipient, 2-Arrow of Light Scouts, 4-Summer Camp Staffers and several high adventure experiences.  I am proud of my Scouting legacy and those knots remind me of a fantastic journey.  So my opinion is "If you got em, wear em" and be proud of your legacy. 
    • Yes indeed but nowhere in the mission of the BSA will you find the word FUN.  Somebody on some committee being guided by an overpaid talking head comes up with this malarkey.   The whole idea of fun is completly overshadowed by lessons, being good citizens and character development.  Will someone please tell me when they hear a kid say that they want to be a Scout to have their character developed, please!!!🤬🤬🤬🤬
