    • How does this work?  Does the tick suffocate or something?
    • Back on topic...I saw a facebook post from a SE which points out the glaring disconnects between the National and Council organizations.  He says he has to wait by the phone on the 23rd just like everyone else.   All SE's have a weekly conference call with National every sunday.  For the over 250 SEs which are the direct contacts of the 2M BSA customers to have zero idea what is going to happen to their operations is ridiculous if true.  If they haven't done their own risk analysis on the impacts to their operations shame on them.  They have to know each dollar increase, especially if off the rails, which be one less dollar for them and likely a loss of membership and units.   They also pay a $1000 Charter fee  to the BSA, unless you turn your paperwork in on time (silly) will that also be increased?
    • I'd encourage you to look at it from the other side.   The BSA has worked very hard to establish itself as an organization that takes youth protection very seriously at all times.  That means we have to embrace youth protection rules even when it's inconvenient.  Yes, I grant that having to provide two deep registered adult leadership for Eagle projects is difficult, but protecting youth is more important.  
    • @mds3dRemember you signed the Eagle Workbook saying you had read the entire workbook which includes following the above paragraph 9.0.2.14 
    • Sorry to append to my own post.  From the article, I think she's a member of Suffolk County Council.  On their website, they have an Eagle Scout Preparation Guide.  It's at: https://www.sccbsa.org/files/21999/Eagle-Scout-Preparation-Guide In there, the only reference to Eagle Boards of Review says: So I have to imagine that she properly filed the application.  Wither the council isn't forwarding the application or their district advancement committee is following instructions and not scheduling the board of review. I wasn't aware of rule 8.0.0.2 quoted in the article.  It says: Later in 8.0.3.0 Particulars for the Eagle Scout Rank   Her argument appears technically correct.  If the BSA wanted a special exception for girls, then they should have rewritten all of this.
