    • So, one of the things alluded to in the Ad Hoc statement that is not widely known, is that not all by-laws and charter agreements are alike:  "any such contractual interest – and the defenses thereto – also varies with the terms of the myriad organizational documents of individual Local Councils, as well as with the particular laws of jurisdictions throughout the United States." My council's agreement and by-laws don't use the widely quoted model language.  When national first introduced that reversionary provision, they and a collection of other councils, balked, and negotiated changes from the model. Our assets don't simply revert to national in the event of charter non-renewla/revokation, rather they must be used for the purposes of scouting in our area.  So on top of whatever "normal" restrictions there might be based on donor restriction, core purpose, etc. , it's also pretty certain that our assets are "restricted" from being grabbed by national to be put into a pool for paying national's creditors and claimants. The BRG view of what constitutes my council's unrestricted assets is almost certainly different than what my council would say is their unrestricted assets.  Both parties are making their statements in good faith, but they are using very divergent assumptions to arrive at them.
    • I have never seen Scouts (youth) wear ponchos during outdoor activities and stay dry.  They (the Scouts and the ponchos) require a good deal of management to stay unsoaked. And you still need something for lower legs and boots... Ponchos do work great when sitting still, waiting for the rain to pass.  But, " a boy is not a sitting-down animal." Your mileage may vary.
    • Actually, I quite like (good) ponchos for hiking and backpacking.  For those two applications, I'd much rather have a good poncho than a rain jacket, but I'll admit a significant part of that is the fact that I've always been a sweaty guy and wearing a rain suit while being active doesn't actually keep me dry, it just means I'm soaked from sweat instead of rain. One thing that can make a poncho MUCH more usable around camp is belting it around the waist to make it more of a tunic instead of a big bulky poncho.  I used to just use a nylon webbing strap off a duffle bag.
    • As to a mediated settlement, I have none. I think Jim Stang's comment about NY was more a matter of "less negative," since the TCC wasn't wholesale excluded from certain discussions, per the Miami runaround. 
    • I tend to agree; however, it does seems like the NY mediation was better than Miami.  The TCC in their townhall was almost offended from the Miami interaction, but seemed more positive about NY.  I don't expect it before May 19th, nor did they indicate they were close ... but perhaps they are making progress.  One could hope.
