    We members of scouter.com, guided by the Scout Oath and Law, generally enjoy an informative, robust , diverse discussion of scout topics. But perhaps because of the times, technology, or personalties some specific policies need to be explicitly stated. Failure to follow the Scout Oath and Law, will result in a warning, post moderation, or suspension. Posted videos, images, and links must pertain to the original post and respectfully move the discussion forward. Failure to do so may result in deletion or editing of the post, and in egregious or repeated instances, may result in a warning to the member. Members are expected to read and acknowledge moderator messages. If moderator messages are unread after 72 hours, the member's account will be locked until they [the member] acknowledges receipt and understanding. Repeat violations will result in account suspension. An Original Poster (OP) can state in that first post "Only on-topic responses, please." Off-topic responses will then be moved or deleted by moderators. Members are reminded that topics are discussions to inform, reflect and not arguments to be won. When a discussion deteriorates into a stagnant endurance contest, a moderator may interject that both sides "Agree to Disagree" and instruct that discussion move on or the moderator may lock the topic pending review. Members can "report" a topic or response which does not follow the Scout Oath and Law, by using the "Report Post" feature in the upper right corner of the response. Posts which advertise products, services, or fund solicitations will be deleted and the member asked to pm Terry-Scouter regarding paid advertising. Members can report concerns about moderators by PMing SCOUTER-Terry. These policies are in addition to the existing Terms of Service below: https://www.scouter.com/legal/tos @NJCubScouter @John-in-KC @LeCastor @packsaddle @MattR @desertrat77 @RememberSchiff

    As some probably know, big difference between first course ( - 1971) and second course 1972-2000) First course was knowing and teaching Scout skills through First Class. Week-long only. Learners tented in patrol sites. All meals cooked as patrols. Second course was built around eleven "leadership skills," sandwiched between sessions on scout Skills. Weekend courses introduced. Learners tented in patrol sites. All meals cooked as patrols. Some announced that the change was "the end of Scouting." A district-level one day course (J.L.O.W.) was an introduction for leaders (boys) to the eleven leadership skills in the context of the Patrol Method. The second, 1972 course postdated Tuckman's 1965 essay on team forming, which had morphed into the Five Stages of Team Development before the, old, 1965 version was adopted by as the basis of the original, Blanchard, version of the third course. 3a That course was greatly changed when BSA employee rewrote the syllabus to avoid having to pay royalties to Blanchard and Associates. 3b Tuckman was not even listed as a resource in the BSA rewrite of the syllabus. Now we have the fourth course, of which i know little, beyond rumors. It is definitely reduced in length by one day, consistent with the BSA deemphasis on training. It was to roll out in 2020.

    Scout Myers, 12, has been participating in the walk since he was 4, becoming the star fundraiser of the Littleton (CO) chapter — now called the Foothills CROP Walk. This year, he brought along some friends: his fellow Boy Scouts of Troop 36, who trudged five miles up Waterton Canyon on Oct. 24 to recognize struggles faced by people far less fortunate — with several of the boys carrying gallon water jugs to symbolize how far people in the developing world must walk for clean water. “So many people in the world face hardships and hunger, and it's easy for people who have food to forget,” Myers said. “I'm just trying to do what I can for them.” ... The CROP walk, which stands for Community Response to Overcome Poverty, dates to 1947, when it started as an effort to send seeds and farming supplies to war-ravaged Europe. Managed by the Church World Service, the annual walk-a-thon raises money for local, national and international food relief efforts. https://highlandsranchherald.net/stories/boy-scouts-take-strides-for-those-less-fortunate,315727 https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=7685 Well done Scouts.
