    • @MikeS72, Unit Scouter Reserve is a designation for 18+ year-old Scouters who wish to be registered with a unit but without a specific position, as you state. The registration fee is as @Treflienne says: $33 + any liability insurance your council may charge.  This allows a parent or other adult to be a member of the unit and, as a result of registering, requires that person to have the BSA background check. Unit Scouter Reserve members must take YPT. The upside for the Reserve member and for unit JTE is that there is no position-specific training required. 
    • What position did your unit intend to register the person for?  Presumably the person filled out an application for council to apply the code to.  The only exception to that I can think of is if the person is supposed to be a Tiger parent. My only experience with scouter reserve is college scouter reserve, and they pay regular registration fees, as do all adults who are registered scouters.
    • I registered as District Scouter Reserve and there was a fee.  ($33 registration + $3 insurance + (optional) $12 Boy's Life)
    • haha @SSScout. Well, my weight has followed a different parabolic pattern, where I was blimpy in equal measure as a scout (and now as a scouter), and decidedly less blimpy in between. I guess the saving grace is that the uniforms are good!
    • I was an (ordinary) Scout, and thought the new Sea Scout Ship (759, Ashton MD) was a very cool idea.  But I stayed a Land Scout thru my career.  SS759 started out with a raft created from 55 gallon drums fastened together for a trip down the tidal  Potomac and around and up the bay to Annapolis MD.  Thank you , Henry.
