  1. Since Mizzou went to the SEC, I don’t the follow Big 8 12 anymore. Does OU suck this year?
  2. Bingo. This should have moved down Council pathways at least a month ahead.

    Guide to Advancement #33088 2019 Edition

    Remember, 33088 is the policy book, not the requirements book.

    Old Guys on Forum?

    I was here before I went to WB. I’m still here.
  5. Worth reading, there were more than a few substantive changes beyond the “happy to glad” of Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA... https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33088.pdf
  6. I’m in my 60s, had 14 MB as I recall, and I know I’m a “Life for life “...aka, I was a Boy Scout. I have no need to “validate” my life by buying an Eagle. I have far more than one defining moment in my lifetime.
  7. Found this elsewhere. National is consolidating resources. That said, I’m not sure the US Scouting Service Project will be obsolete any time soon... https://troopresources.scouting.org/

    Boy Scout Handbook banned in prison

    How to learn to escape. It makes sense.
  11. My gut tells me that either has or is about to change.

    @Jlplemon, welcome as well. There’s a professional at Council who is the OA staff adviser. Talk to him. 🙂

    Youth Protection - Parent Unwelcome

    Moderator Note, Scouter is not a forum for legal advice. This matter belongs in the hands of the parent, the CM, the COR, and the Scout Executive of the Council concerned. While we review this topic, it’s locked. We will let you know if we unlock it.

    So it Begins: Great Salt Lake Council lays off 21 employees

    one Thing the story doesn’t tell us is how many are professional service, and how many are admin employees.

    Beginning of wolf year but only 2nd year for son

    I would look at other Packs in the area. I’d also take an objective look at the Den he’s in. How many youth? How many adult leaders? Is there a Scouts BSA Den Chief? Is he being used as a big brother or sister the littles look up to and want to emulate? Cub Scouting IS herding kiddos, but the leaders need to be doing said herding.
