    • I think that is pretty good advice. Scouts are never supposed to be punished for the failings of adults. I had to do that this last summer since our camp did not complete our blue cards. 
    • "BSA already knows the answer to that one too.  It just lacks the will to impose the necessary standards and practices" ...  "BSA lacks the will here to impose discipline and direction on a loosey-goosey program" I agree in scouting is often a loosey-goosey program. BSA lack's the will I disagree in that  BSA does not know the answer to provide consistent quality. BSA does not know the program they want to be.  JROTC?  Outward bound?  STEM?  Career?   Or, is it just all-things-to-all-people. BSA depends too much on charismatic, high quality leaders as the answer to the program.  BUT, they can't consistently get those high quality leaders.  In some ways, maybe the future is good.  BSA needs to slim down and decide what type of program it is.  BSA needs to trim off all the side programs and focus on the core.  It's just that BSA does not really know what that core is.  Perhaps, BSA should just use the 1910's handbook.   
    • Talk to the scoutmaster? If I were the scoutmaster I'd ask the scout what he did for each requirement and, giving him the benefit, fill out a blue card saying the scout had completed those reqs if he sounded even close. Then I'd have the scout call another counselor to finish the badge.
    • I think  dkurtenbach was using Gordon Ramsey as an example that we need some no nonsense, asking the hard questions people cutting through some of these inefficient processes. When a commissioner takes your charter and counts the names and does the multiplcation ($60x20 = 1200)  on a separate "special sheet" and then says "that matches your form"  it is unneccessary and makes the council look like they think we are idiots.   I hit send when the charter says no errors and refuse to participate in their nonsense.    My pick would be John McEnroe whose favorite saying to the umpires was "you can't be serious".   And then it still takes 4 months to "process" through the black hole
    • Absolutely.  It shouldn't be as hard as it is.  CC or designee inputs/edits unit roster and payment info.  SM gets a notification, if all looks good clicks approve.  COR/IH get a notification, click approve.  Council registrar get a notification, clicks approve.  Done.
