    • His name is Creek Stewart.  He's been associated with the BSA at least informally for years.
    • apparently it's all Trail Life's fault now, https://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/blog/clarifying-misinformation-about-2019-world-scout-jamboree-policies/
    • I think BSA will continue to exist, but in a very different incarnation than we know today. Some sort of bankruptcy reorganization seems inevitable. Many of the changes ahead will be dictated by courts and creditors and parties entirely detached from Scouting. But setting aside the gloom and doom ... OA will soon be forced to abandon its Indian-themed ceremonies - too much cultural appropriation for this PC era. Whether OA continues to exist at all after that - who knows? God is next on the chopping block. I fully expect that Duty to God will become an optional component, if not eliminated from the oath altogether. Yes - everything seems to point in the direction that BSA wants to emulate the UK Scouting program. With Irving's track record, I personally think they will end up emulating the Canada Scouting program. BSA National just doesn't have the wisdom and competence. I wholeheartedly support the idea of this kind of BSA ambassador. I would choose a male role model who exudes outdoor adventure and healthy manhood. That doesn't seem to fit the current trend toward genderless Scouting, so I'm sure BSA will bungle things by picking both a man and a woman. This is the wrong way to go. STEM is currently being pushed everywhere in our society. Who needs BSA for that? BSA needs to differentiate itself around outdoor adventure (something that should already be its core strength). Less indoors - more outdoors. Less bookwork - more adventure.
    • More likely they have their hands full with lousy units.
    • There is 1 formal meeting each month. When we are busy and there is a lot of work to do, they will often get together for an unscheduled lunch meeting. I didn't get invited to the lunch meetings. They want to enjoy their lunch. I think the boys enjoy doing BOR's at the lunch meetings during the summer. A burger and fries can do wonders to improve their mood and disposition.
