  1. Sorry if my last post addressed things you allready knew. Reread rest of posts and realized I may have missed the point.
  2. You haven't earned a rank until after board. Unless it's Eagle that occurs within the troop. One of your jobs as Advancment chair is to arrange these boards and submit unit advancement report to council. once that is done you can get your patches .Next meeting after board is plenty immediate . If it's Eagle he's not officially an Eagle until paperwork is processed at National after his BOR. Did you get supplied with current Advancement guide (released 2011) ?can download from National website. All you need is 3 adult members for board not SM or ASM . Our troop schedules boards as soo
  3. The most important thing is that the candidate sets a good example . I was a chapter advisor for 8 years and the skills section had no bearing on aproving selection. I did appreciate the section being filled out though. I used the information for recruiting adults for specific events. If we were doing a service project that would use carpentry skills it was nice to be able to be able to target people with those skills rather than blindly asking for help. Sometimes the chapter would put on merit badge clinics for district and it helped to know if person was a counci
  4. The group that I started this about is now an Explorer post.This gives them some flexibility with uniform and program. This is a very small group with members from a couple of councils districts.They are not so much an honor society as a leadership focused unit.
  5. It is true that my original entry was not very detailed. As things moved on I believe I clarified things pretty well. Early on I pointed out that I'd done the Web search stuff and that I was looking for anyone who had encountered group directly. It sure looked to me like you(BP) initiated the argumentative tone with Crew21.He had no problem reacting to the baiting it's true. I may of misinterpreted what was going on and I'm sorry for that.I understand that the flavor of open forum does tend toward debate so maybe I should of put it out somewhere else. Though this took twisted pa
  6. I can't believe it BP.You are continuing your self righteous attack on crew21 and giving me advice on something you are clueless about.I am gathering from what I've seen so far that group is not a widely functioning BSA sanctioned group. I also I think we can tell by what's been said so far that aside from using it as an inspiration,current group has nothing to do with the original club. Aside from the structure and using membership as a scout credential I have no problem with them.They are all deeply involved scouts/scouters whose membership in club is based on a mutual concern about wh
  7. Actually I thought I'd made it clear that I've had direct contact with said group. "They've stated that they are not a secret society but membership is invitation from members.These people are self described elite.I've seen nothing but good from the individuals I've encountered but I'm concerned about the closed nature of organization functioning within Scouts."(earlier entry) They are people who have moved into district and are deeply involved in our activities and outdoor committee. I've expressed my concern to main person and he's agreed to sit down with me and address my concerns.
  8. Clarification:My query actually had nothing to do with Druids.The concern is a private club functioning with in scouting that uses membership as a scouting credential. I've pretty much ruled out any connection to Druidism and truthfully if the information on group was open,I would have no problem with Druid connection.
  9. The committee does not vote on every eligible member.A nomination has to be submitted for consideration. On the point of my original question.I'm looking for people who may of had personal experience.I already performed the internet search. I'm just curious about how wide spread this group is.
  10. The following is description I received from member. "If you have a copy of "Baden-Powell" the Two Lives of Hero by William Hillcourt (80th Birthday Edition) On page 28, there is a brief mention of the founding of the Order of Druids. Which was founded, in part by Baden-Powell, in 1873 while attending the private Charterhouse School outside London. Its from the Charterhouse Coat of Arms that the Order of Druids got its own... turning a bend sinister, the red semaphore with celtic fleur de lis over the Charterhouse Arms... Contrary to the name the Order has no affiliations wit
  11. Though the selection for Vigil committee is made up of youth members any scout or scouter can nominate Vigil Candidate
  12. Thanks,I found that. I've been told that it originated with Baden Powell.Their stated goals are admirable but I'm concerned about their structure.From what I've gotten from the ones representing themselves as members of this group it has nothing to do with Druidism. They've stated that they are not a secret society but membership is invitation from members.These people are self described elite. I've seen nothing but good from the individuals I've encountered but I'm concerned about the closed nature of organization functioning within Scouts.
  13. Does anyone know anything about a group called the Scout Order of Druids?
  14. Definitely.This is not the kind of policy I'd make an issue about enforcing.
  15. their explanation says that decision was made after asking some Native Americans but it doesn't say if these represented persons who had any other credentials other than blood lines.They may have gotten different feed back if they asked a different set of people. The ceremonialists I know don't feel comfortable using "Costume"
