    • @SiouxRanger ... Fundraiser app.  Not the main proposal.  Council approval.  Not the beneficiary.  ... Unless I miss read a key part.  If the proposal was signed off and report was signed off, you are good.  ... Even if the proposal was not signed off, there are still paths as the project is required; not the paperwork.  If the scout can demonstrate develop, plan and lead, there are still paths forward.   ... Fundraiser app exists to prevent things from going south. 
    • Touched a nerve I see. Is "you have no integrity to accuse him the way you have, Mr Boy Scout Skeptic" supposed to be an insult? Either way, if you want to defend Mr Kosnoff and explain why he doesn't want to burn the BSA to the ground then enlighten us, but insulting forum members isn't helping.
    • @Needhelp434--Welcome to the forum.  Lots of smart and sensitive Scouters here who can help.   It appears that you do have the approval of the beneficiary of the project-that is very important.  If the beneficiary has approved and has accepted the work, it is difficult for the district or council representative to dispute the beneficiary's approval. Did you submit a draft of your Eagle Project to the authorized district or council representative but just omit getting the final approval? With Covid and Eagle Project Proposals being sent around by email, Eagle Project Proposals no longer have all the required signatures on a single page of the Project, but now tend to have only one signature on multiple copies of the same page.  It is easy to overlook a missing page and thereby a missing signature. You might also ask your Eagle Coach(or Scoutmaster if no Eagle Coach) to contact the district or council representative and explain the situation.   If you have any difficulties, please post here again before starting another Eagle Project.  I would hope that things work out OK for approval of your Eagle Project now completed.   It sounds like you have time to do an entire new Eagle Project.  Hopefully not necessary, but that is a good fall-back position.  And, good for you to have done your Eagle Project with plenty of time to spare, and not wait until the last minute.   And if things do work out OK, please post and let us know-or we will worry about you for a long time-years even Good luck.   Eagle Scout, Philmont Ranger.   I have been an Eagle Coach for 10 or 15 years, and I would have no problem with a district or council representative approving your Eagle Project after the event.. 
    • While unjamming some window weights today, my recollection of that diagram of a window-sash in that merit badge pamphlet borrowed from the troop library umpteen years ago came in handy.
    • Because in the end he's not interested in what in monetarily in the best interest of his clients OR himself. He simply wants BSA dead. He is allowing his ideological/vendetta to kill BSA at all costs to override the best-interest-of-clients. Again, and again, and again, he's playing the Pied Piper to victims: just reject the plan and he can magically get all 50,000 statutes of limitations lifted and billions of dollars. Of course, he's never specified the legal theory behind any of this. He's offered nothing. The TCC at least is offering a path, or at least the 6-7 specific points of a path (details TBD). The Coalition/BSA/FCR plan offers a path. Agree, disagree, but it is a path.
