    • Has anyone found the TCC documents showing which camps they would sell and which they would keep to make a reasonable drive time and maximize $$$ from LC's. They should release that with their plan,hopefully. My concern is that friends groups of various camps continue to invest money into them, not knowing that their camp may go away. LC's are not communicating that maybe a pause is needed for investments for a year until this is over.  I would not want my hard earned money donated to a camp one year and it be sold the next year. Oh, wait it happened to me a few years ago. 
    • We have a campout coming up for our pack.  Two of the Scouts - one Tiger, one Wolf - lost their dad  a couple of years ago.  They are a Gold Star family, meaning that if mom remarries before she reaches a certain age, she loses all benefits, including the survivor retirement pay, health care, etc.  She has a boy friend who is essentially her husband and the stepfather of the Scouts in all but legal status.  She can't make it on the camping trip, so he's planning to bring them.  We really didn't think anything of it until I started digging into the G2SS and it dawned on me that he is neither their parent nor legal guardian.  He is listed as the secondary emergency contact for them in the Pack and at school.  He is also listed as her emergency contact, and she is his for the Army.  Given that it is essentially a common law marriage, minus the legalities, does he still need to sleep in a separate tent from them?
    • Since Cub Scouting can be completed without camping 1 night, we always require every Cub Scout to have a parent or guardian present.  Consequently, we have a Scout to adult ratio around 1:1 to 1.5:1.  I know the rules say Cub Scouts should have a parent and Tigers must, but no one wants to babysit someone else's kid.
