  1. 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).
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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/
  5. Membership fees increasing again

    My District already charges $144/annual per scout.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Survey on girls just received

    Isn't Trail Life a choice? The BSA is far from the only single-sex scouting program.
  9. Outside Magazine: Boy Scouts Should Allow Girls

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
  10. 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.
  11. President Trump to visit 2017 Jamboree

    Aren't those campaign accessories?
  12. A letter from my SE

    So we shouldn't complain about segregated schools? You said you weren't hearing from girls who wanted to join. Now you've heard. And since this discussion hasn't left the confines of the Scouter-bubble, I'm sure you'll hear from more soon.
  13. A letter from my SE

    I am a father of one boy and three girls, and I would love to have the option of registering my girls into Boy Scouts, if that's what they wanted.
  14. Merit Badge Worksheets

    So is shoplifting.
  15. That's the module method of training. They've broken up all the committee/leader online trainings into pieces, so if you took both the Cubmaster training and later took the Den Leader training, you could skip the modules you already covered for the previous position.
