    • If the 18 - 20 year olds are treated with the same respect as other Scouters, i.e they count towards 2 Deep rules, I am game.
    • I was able to follow a link and find that you can register Rover in MyScouting… interesting.
    • There has been a lot of discussion on various BSA groups about ending all youth programs at 18 (OA, Venturing, Sea Scouts).  One part of the discussion is the thought that BSA will be reintroducing Rover Scouts.  In fact, several individuals have stated that councils have already started pilots (example below … their Facebook page started ~January 2019). https://tidewaterbsa.com/districts/rovers/ It sounds like Rover Scouts are common internationally and seem to provide a lot of leadership for those scouting organizations.  Does any know how Rover scouts tie into units or are they completely separate groups.  Just wondering how they functional in the international scout organizations as I do believe we have simply ignored scouts (outside of a few examples) once they turn 18 and simply hope they return once they have kids in scouting age.  So, if true, this seems like a great idea if implemented well.
    • Today, Judge Silverstein concluded "that Sidley may continue to represent BSA generally in this bankruptcy case... Haynes and Boone (another BSA attorney) must handle all matters adverse to Century that address the substantive treatment of BSA’s insurance policies with Century, claims there under, proceeds there from or that otherwise implicate insurance coverage." https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/821723_728.pdf
    • A few days ago I stopped checking this thread because of what I sensed was irrational negativity.  I was going to post something back then but had one of those "write the letter but don't send it" moments.  In the end we need to be optimistic in the most challenging of times and generally have an openness to seeing how we can move forward to another, better day.  Relitigating policy decisions already made and making sweeping generalizations is just not going to be helpful to anyone.  I wish everyone well who comments here and hope they can find ways to continue serving young people, whether it is going forward with us or elsewhere.  It will be tough, but we will live through this and come out on the other side a Scouting organization that uplifts the lives of our young people.
