  1. The Counselor keeps it as part of his/her records for a period of years. (just like paid bills & taxes)
  2. We flip-flop every other year going in-council and out of council. This seems to work for us and keeps everyone happy.
  3. Our Troop washes only their towels and field uniform shirts (class A) at the mid-camp point.
  4. Board of Review Training - http://www.scouting.org/boyscouts/trainingmodules/board%20of%20review%20training.aspx How to Hold a Board of Review - - - - A board can expect a Scout to be neat in appearance and properly uniformed.
  5. That's easy! Horses don't even wear shirts so they have nothing to worry about, dead or not Actually my son went to NYLT and that paperwork said he needed to have a full week's supply of FULL BSA UNIFORM. It said (and I quote), "ONLY THE OFFICIAL UNIFORM - SHIRT and SHORTS or PANTS ARE ACCEPTABLE" That indicates to me that it's a policy of some kind. The Required items list says the same thing, must have short sleeve uniform shirts, at least 2 pairs of uniform shorts or pants, official belt and buckle, and Interestingly enough it does say he can have "plain or Scout related T-shi
  6. We have a pretty poor District - so poor that we underestimated on the number of folks that would show up to our District Banquet. The District Committee made reservations at a local joint that serves up BBQ and salads. Well they kept shoving more and more people into the dining room by the time everyone showed up we filled the room and then some. It was OVER filled..... and the guy that actually got the District Award of Merit didn't get a place to sit down and eat his dinner. His wife gave up her seat too - so others could sit. many people didn't get a dinner that night even though they paid
  7. I personally think Fast Start is a waste of time if you are already going to do Position Specific training, New Leader Essentials AND Youth Protection, but that's my opinion. Luckily fast Start can be taken online at one's convenience.
  8. Oh man! It must have been contained immediately or at least wasn't too bad because there's just nothing about it at all in the news. I hope all is well.
  9. Spitting off buildings and high places.................. must be a testosterone fueled thing because I can honestly say I have never had the urge to spit anywhere
  10. Yep, he's real - while I do not know him personally, he is in my Council and the word about is that he's a real person, and even a SM lol (This message has been edited by Joni4TA)
  11. Thought provoking post, thank you.... as our community is on the brink of starting a new pack... this is the kind of thought process I need to be reading and thinking about.
  12. Add another ignorer to Trev's list... his excessive use of the word hello just really got my goat. I found it extremely antagonistic
  13. My son went to NYLT last week and I am glad; it seems like he has gotten something out of it, and he was well complimented by one of the adult volunteers at the camp. Apparently they have already interviewed him to be on the NYLT staff next year. He announced this to his Troop on Tuesday.. that he had "A LOT" of fun, and learned a few things as well as refreshed on some things. He seemed proud, a little different, more aware of how he represents himself in the group - all good things. I am glad he was recommended by his SM! Even though he whined and cried about how it was his first week out of
  14. My daughter #1 is a 2cnd year Brownie and I am the Brownie Leader. My other daughter #2 is going to be a 1st year Daisy this year (we early bird registered her). I waited several months back when #1 signed up to see if anyone else would be her troop leader. I didn't really want to do it because I have a lot on my plate. But basically I ended up finally stepping up in November when it was clear no one else was going to. We missed fall product sales and almost missed cookie sales because we didn't have a "formed troop." I am thinking rather than go through all that again with daughter #2, I
