    • Great summary statement.  So fundamental.   I swear this smells very much like a person I knew from years ago.  His profit was tied to delays and difficulty.  A certain percent of companies gave up chasing small amounts they had a right to just because of delays or cost chasing the funds.  It was tens of thousands at a time.  It was unethical to me, but it was just business to him.   It smells like this case.  Way too many open questions, but rushing to a settlement that might not be legal.  It feels like people want to get funds distributed even though it might later be found not legal or conveying protection.  BUT then try to get those funds back to pay the correct rightful order of debtors.  It feels like it would quickly be too late to pull funds back as the funds would be covering costs to execute the legal case.    It smells like a quick push to accept a settlement because there are long questions whether it's legal that could take a much longer time.  People want to pull some funds out.  
    • This is the doc link https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/327b25bb-1d4e-4db6-a901-0b542f32f572_5756.pdf Yep. No breakdowns on how much each Council will contribute until the last minute. But a lot of time is spent trying desperately to insist the COs are not being thrown under the bus (see pages 4-5). Meanwhile, the COs themselves are running for the hills and/or switching to facilities-only agreements.
    • Just spotted this: STATEMENT OF THE AD HOC COMMITTEE OF LOCAL COUNCILS IN SUPPORT OF THE RSA APPROVAL MOTION  Document 5756, filed 7-26-21, page 3: "As of the date of filing of this Statement, virtually all Local Councils have returned letters of intent agreeing to pay amounts that, in the aggregate, will meet the amounts required under the RSA. Additionally, the Ad Hoc Committee is confident that, by the time of the hearing on the disclosure statement, it will have secured letters of intent from all Local Councils to contribute the amount requested of them by the Ad Hoc Committee.  As required under the RSA,6 the amount of each Local Council’s contribution – and its breakdown of cash and property – will be included in the disclosure statement."
    • So how would they handle First Class Requirement 4B if a separate GPS device was not available?  "Demonstrate how to use a handheld GPS unit, GPS app on a smartphone, or other electronic navigation system. Use GPS to find your current location, a destination of your choice, and the route you will take to get there. Follow that route to arrive at your destination."
    • The first person I called was someone on the committee.  She felt it should be left up to the troop.
