  1. My scoutmaster always said if your scout book did not fall apart you were not reading it enough.
  2. Eagle Scout Application Filing Fee

    OCC's Weekly Guide to Scouting just came across my inbox with their different alternative.
  3. Eagle Scout Application Filing Fee

    I am in OCC and our district Advancement Chair sent this out to what I am guessing all Scoutmaster's and Committee Chairs or maybe just his Advancement Committee. We were on an outing when our Scoutmaster read the email and shared it with the Committee Chair and those around. Everyone's reaction was pretty heated and the BOD should drop the idea of even evaluating charging a fee now. Instead they can charge the fee to the board of directors for their spot on the board to increase profits.
  4. Eagle Scout Application Filing Fee

    According to an email sent out Saturday, Jan 20th from the a District Advancement Chair of OCC it is to go into effect March 1st. I hope it is a miscommunication within the district not that you just haven't heard the news yet. Here is what was in the email Effective March 1st. The Orange County Council will be assessing a filing fee for Eagle Scout applications. The fee will be $120 with applications to defray the costs to the council to file. The logistics are being worked out as to who will be collecting. You will be receiving the Eagle Scout gift set with this fee. Please pass this along to your respective troops.This information was passed along to us today at the Top Hands Meeting at the council. YIS,
  5. Our Council just announced that they will be charging a filing fee for Eagle Scout Applications, is there is any other council charging a fee to file an Eagle Application?
  6. Patch Souvenir for Sacramento River trip?

    By BSA I am assuming you mean the 50 Miler Afoot/Afloat Award. Have you checked the Golden Empire Council High Adventure Team's Awards? http://www.gec-bsa.org/training/high-adventure-training-hat/hat-awardspatches/river-runner/66361
  7. With much of the Sierra still snowpacked it is looking like our planned trip to Emigrant Wilderness trip will be getting a new location. Anyone have any ideas of backpacking areas that offer fishing opportunies outside of the Sierras. Preferably something within 500 miles of Southern California.
  8. Should The Adult Step In or Stay Out

    No you are not wrong to be concerned over this. If the youth leadership is taking care of things the only need for an adult to butt in is if there is a safety concern and yelling at a scout is not the method to use, although we all can lose our cool at times. I would definitly try to avoid taking that adult to camp again untill he gets some training.
  9. Half Dome Hike

    We did a hike in Yosemite in 04 that included Half Dome. We started and eneded at Tuolumne Meadows camped at Upper Fletcher Lake, Merced Lake, then there was a camp at a trail junction between half dome and cloud's rest (We side hiked Half Dome that afternoon), We then climbed over Cloud's Rest and camped at Sunrise Lakes then Cathedral Lake and hiked out to Tuolmne Meadows the next day.(This message has been edited by hikeoholic)

    ozemu "We don't actually have a BOR. When the Scout has passed all required tests they get the awarded level. Duty to their god and oath and law are included in the badges required at all levels" A BOR is also included in the badges required at all levels except Scout. So are you saying you reward the scouts before they have completed all the requirments for the badge?
  11. District Camporee / Council Fees

    nldscout, If you cancel an event just because council wants to charge a fee who are you really affecting? Not the council the council will just go on with business as usual. the only ones that will be affected is the young man we are in the program for.
  12. Philmont requires H&S?

    What is H&S?????? I've seen this posted on the Philmont Mail List and someone asked the question but the discussion then turned to wilderness first aid.
  13. Summer Camp schedule-fill it up or leave free time?

    if i was put in charge of the troops summer camp organization i would make sure the young men are occupied the good part of the day but have enough free time where they can choose to do something totally up to them. If they are in activity sessions all day all week it will get boring and seem just like school.

    CA_Scouter, Sounds great, we did a Yosemite hike from Tuolumne Meadows in 04 that included half dome and Cloud's Rest. The scenery was great unlucky for me I had my digital camera and its bag which just had a velcro lid and the camera ended dropping of of the slope while i was climbing to the top. Make sure everyone secures their gear on the way to the top inside a a pack that zips shut, lesson learned hard.. Have a great trip
