  1. Maybe the GSA should try to retaliate & open their membership to males, or those who identify as other than female. That way they can level the playing field.
  2. This is something that would be handled by the Chartered Organization Rep (COR) or the Institutional Head/ Exec Officer. They should definitely be filled in on what is going on. Many times, the COR is not directly involved in the unit or it's committee, but one of the roles of the COR is to oversee the Scout unit and make sure that it is operating within the guidelines of BSA & the Chartering Org. In our area, the Council never really gets involved in internal unit affairs like this.
  3. When 2 units merge, that is one Charter Fee that is not collected. Better for National to keep multiple units to increase the Charter Fees.
  4. Our council routinely has Packs come to the council camp where they can have a shooting sports day just for their unit. We will have BSA RSOs there to run the range, but the attending Pack does not have to invite nor include other units, at least at our council camp.
  5. We have had three campouts with another Troop this year. It's a Troop with whom we have done many things with over the years. We've selected a location, but each Troop has made their wn arrangements as far as food, transportation, costs, etc. We basically look at it like each Troop is doing their own campout, just at the same location. Sometimes, the activities would coincide with each other. Other times, we are doing separate stuff. We have 1 family where the grandparents are raising the grandsons. One grandson is in each Troop. Last year, they had 2 Scouts who transferred to our Troo
  6. We are having a Fellowship later this month, but only as a day event. It won't be for the weekend as usual. We also have an Ordeal coming up in mid-November.
  7. With all of the advertising right now by lawyers seeking plaintiffs against BSA, this might not be the best time to use Scouting Heritage in marketing for the area's tourism industry. It may bring unwanted attention in today's society. I truly hope it does not, but you never know with the way things go these days.
  8. That same 17 year old, who could be a scout, could just as easily enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps.
  9. https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2020/06/24/answering-common-questions-about-the-bsas-commitment-to-act-against-racial-injustice/ Just as a reminder, the BSA stands with and supports Black Lives Matters. Despite the BLM speakers declaring that (law enforcement) officers should have been strangled by their umbilical cords as babies and that the speakers are ready to shoot the officers. Despite the BLM organizers endorsing the rioting and looting, since businesses have insurance to cover their loss. Despite BLM organizers justifying the looting, by calling it reparations. In the Bryan on
  10. Since the COR is also the CC, then I'd have another committee member sign in place of the CC (their own name, not the CC name) and have the IH sign in place of the CC. If the fill-in committee member is the parent of one of the Eagle applicants, I'd have another committee member sign that application (not a requirement, but that's what I'd do). I hope the CC recovers soon.
  11. Hi Cubscoutgirlmom416, Welcome to the forum. I would not think that you have anything to worry about. As MattR mentioned, you might let the Chartered Organization Rep know what happened since you are worried about it. I probably wouldn't worry about it, but since someone got cps involved, in wouldn't be bad to mention it. I would be really surprised if it went further than where it is now and should not necessitate changing plans to become Cubmaster.
  12. Where you and I may recognize the difference in playing football vs. tossing it around a little, when a Scout twists his ankle while tossing the ball, that report is going to be written up as an injury while playing football. If asked, the Scout will say they were playing football. At that point, he was engaged in a prohibited activity. Insurance claim denied. I don't think that we should have to coach our Scouts on how to use the correct verbiage to make sure that we are jumping through all the proper hoops. We would have to make sure that little Johnny knows to say that they were "just thr
  13. My two cents: Once a gift is given, it is the recipients to do with as they please. If it was a conditional use agreement, where they can use the property/ building as long as it stays named after her, then that is a different situation.
  14. Absolutely, we have too many testimonials from survivors that their families and neighbors were complying, because, being the good citizens, that is what you did. How different might things have looked in the early- to mid- 1900s if millions had resisted early, instead of complying. I'm afraid that we will have a similar view in hindsight.
