    • Let me clear something up.  I have no hate for volunteers. Scouting can’t work without them. I did not mean to offend anyone. My point is if the district doesn’t do well it has no effect on the volunteers personal well being or the volunteers family.  You still can pay the bills, eat, all of the basics of life. For the DE it could cost them their job and therefore effect their family. The DE has more on the line in the big picture than a volunteer.   Volunteers can walk away, drop the ball, don’t complete the task and life goes on for the volunteer.  For a DE their job may not.  
    • I think that's part of it.  It's not the CO model itself, but the fact that individual religions represent large proportions of the COs.  When you have any religion that is 10% of the COs, I have to imagine they will influence policy. I think there are probably others.  One is the headquarters location.  BSA - Irving, TX.  GSUSA - NYC.  I have to imagine some of these things are influenced by the working staff in the headquarters office.    
    • Well, that's the question.  My DE said 5 was the minimum for an existing pack as well as a new pack.  I asked the question two or three ways and got the same answer every time.
    • I don't see an immediate concern. As it currently stands, many CO's and Troops have rules more restrictive than BSA, yet those troops still go to regional and national scouting events. Just because our Scouts go to an event that has less restrictions on some topics doesn't mean we as scouters have to lessen our standards of conduct. In other words, we are still well within our right to tell our scouts that it is a violation to engage in such behavior even if the WOSM makes condoms available upon request. I would assume many of us have schools and other organizations within our communities that also would provide such for free upon request but we don't (necessarily) pull our kids from such because the school or community might have less restrictions on behavior than we do. If the WOSM had a different and lower standard is it pertains to Safe Swim Defense, I would certainly hope our scouters would still tell our scouts that they are prohibited from swimming unless they passed OUR standards. Doesn't mean we would tell WOSM to get lost for not applying the standards of the home country. If that was the case, that every host country could force the WOSM to create new rules every four years based on the social norms of the host country, then the Jamboree would only ever be in the most socially liberal countries.
    • There should be no minimum going forward unless you are starting a new unit.    Min number for new unit (of any gender) is 5.
