    Recruiting Resources

    The list is targeted. I've got recent yearbooks from local schools, and using anywho.com I can reasonably figure out a home address for most of the students. We'll be doing some back to school nights also, but most schools keep outside groups out as a general policy (otherwise there would be tables for 50 different competing groups).

    Recruiting Resources

    It looks like we need to print our own recruiting flyers, since our council is limiting us to 100 (I have a list of 600 home addresses we plan to drop flyers at), and our council won't let us customize our meeting date/time (Northern Star does a council-wide "School Night For Scouting"). The national file store https://scouting.webdamdb.com/bp/#/ has some nice templates, but we can't afford color copies. Anyone have a good black-and-white recruiting template we can modify?

    Sea Scouts on the Lake. Lake Scouts? http://kstp.com/news/nonprofit-teaches-children-to-sail-on-lake-nokomis/4985191/

    Arrow of Light Scouts Crossing Over

    The Arrow of Light is still a Cub Scout award. The Scout does not need to "prove he has accomplished" anything. The Cub Scout merely has to "Do His Best".

    Motivation Quote of the Day

    Intelligence is knowing that Frankenstein was not the monster. Wisdom is knowing that Frankenstein was the monster.

    New Necker Colors

    It looks like Wolf Cubs will soon be wearing a red necker (match the background of the Wolf Badge). Lion Cubs will be yellow, Tigers Bears and Webelos the same. Leak from a handbook photo-shoot (which included girls).

    Youth Protection In The Digital Age.

    Someone threw out a rumor that Youth Protection Training will soon become a full day session. Anyone heard that?
  8. I'm not surprised there wasn't much discussion on implementation before this change was announced. If there were studies/pilots/fact finding about how to do this, there would have been no way for the BSA to keep the announcement under wraps. Then we'd be stuck with leaks/rumors/no information about what was happening. This is as open as we can expect.

    Membership fees increasing again

    It is a pilot project. Covers the annual registration, Boys Life, new handbook each year (or $12 credit for Boy Scouts), and awards at Scout Shop. This is the start of the second year. http://metrolakes.nsbsa.org/

    Bryan On Scouting and Uniforms

    If this troop were in San Francisco (or Reno), with strong support from the Levi Strauss & Co, and the uniform jeans were indeed "uniform", then fine. Just having the the troop number "501" doesn't cut it.

    Outside Magazine: Boy Scouts Should Allow Girls

    I think its absurd to assume that the people who post 5 times to this topic in the last hour are in any way representative of the membership of the BSA at large.

    Survey on girls just received

    Isn't Trail Life a choice? The BSA is far from the only single-sex scouting program.

    Outside Magazine: Boy Scouts Should Allow Girls

    It's the end of the world as we know it.

    Youth Behavior at 2017 Jamboree

    Some of you are comparing a incident of sexual harassment to finding loose change on the ground. That is not comparable. And I'm deeply troubled that someone brought a "what was she wearing" argument into it. This girl was assaulted at a scouting event. By scouts. Maybe large events like these need to institute an "attitude deposit", an extra $200 (heck, what's another 10%) charged to each scout that is forfeit if another scout in their contingent behaves in a criminal or abusive manner.
