    • Update 9/18/2019:  On Sept. 28, a Boy Scout Troop formed in Pawhuska, OK and chartered under the Boy Scouts organization in England, marks 110 years. At its Aug. 13 meeting, the Pawhuska City Council voted to declare Sept. 28 as a Day of Celebration in honor of this first troop. The celebration begins on Sept. 28 with a parade in downtown Pawhuska at 10 a.m. followed by a reception for the 96 Eagle Scouts from Pawhuska at the Pawhuska Community Center at 520 Lynn Ave. Troop 1 in Pawhuska had 22 members and was founded by the Rev. John Forbes Mitchell in 1909. “The story goes that when the Reverend came from England to Osage County on a mission trip, he sent back communication to England ... that there were some boys who were a little unruly. The response that came back to him was ‘start a Scout Troop.’ So, before there was the Boy Scouts of America, we had scouting right here,” Cherokee Council Scout Executive Philip Mba Wright said. The next year, in 1910, The Boy Scouts of America was founded. Thereafter, the troop in Pawhuska became Troop 30 under the Boy Scouts of America charter. Later, Troop 43 in Pawhuska was also chartered under the Boy Scouts of America. More details at source:  https://www.miamiok.com/news/20190918/first-boy-scout-troop-in-america-celebrates-110-years
    • This has the feel of waiting for another shoe to fall....
    • Last time they raised fees, they let us know early Sept.  That was late but at least before recruiting.  Why do they need to wait until Oct 23?  This doesn’t make sense at all unless they are considering other options.   
    • Excellent points.  I think the reason is twofold.   Things have gone from bad to worse.  Also, I think the management style at Irving TX isn't very efficient on any given day, and even less so in a crisis. 
    • With all due respect to National I call BS.  The increased insurance cost isn't a surprise nor is the departure of LDS.  This decision should have been made and announced months ago so units could plan and be honest with their parents.  Instead they wait until after fall recruiting is done?
