  1. The problem is that the current policy and the resolution are bad. The current policy just sucks and anyone found/reported to be a homosexual can be kicked out of the program. The resolution sends a horrible message to our youth that they are good enough to achieve the highest rank in scouting but because they are homosexual they are not good enough to then serve our youth once they age out. Disgusting.
  2. That don't make no sense. He's a whole enough person to Eagle but not to volunteer? This change, if approved, will call the bluff (or non-bluff) of the Chartered Orgs who threatened to pull if any out gays were allowed in. It will also continue to piss off adults and corporations who see BSA as still discriminating. So once again, BSA has sort of done nothing, if approved.
  3. Ugh. At least its [some] progress and the stupid local option idea got tossed? BSA.. always following, never leading (as an organization).
  4. "No sir, I totally disagree... I hear the same bell tolling" Because BSA is doing oh so great in the membership numbers currently.

  7. So far my 2 kickback errors were: WARNING: Local tours require at least ONE ADULT who has completed the Youth Protection Training. WARNING: Effective for tours on 1/1/2009 at least one adult must have completed Planning and Preparing for Hazardous Weather Training. However, the permit did have hazardous weather on it. Still waiting on council to approve or kick back again.
  8. I've noticed a bit of pilling on my supplex shirt on the back where the top of the pants go. Had to use the sweater shaver to get rid of that.

  10. Online in My Scouting. I know it has gotten to at least the point where the council can deny it, cause they've done that twice. Define not working for you. I did have to go to a Windows machine, it had issue with Firefox on Linux.
  11. $5 fee? *checks watch* are you sure this isn't a sub off of the April 1st joke?
  12. Why is the new hazardous weather course referred to 3 different names depending where you look? E-Learning = Weather Hazards Tour Permit Training section = Hazardous Weather Tour Permit autoresponder = Planning and Preparing for Hazardous Weather Training Why can't the Tour Permit and E-Learning be linked. Seems like a BSA ID should just about do everything needed here. Ask for the BSA ID of an adult on this tour permit. Then link to their online training. The only one I needed for a permit that you can't do online is BALOO. Which brings up the next part of this rant.. when is BSA going to do away with asking for names when doing training and ask for IDs and maintain national training records? And if this tour permit comes back one more time asking for Hazardous Weather and YP, both of which are on the printout of it..... poor DE.
  13. Saw the article in Scouting Magazine. Looks way cool. They go out of their way in the FAQ to point out that there is NO classroom training, its all in the field.
  14. Badenp, Yes, I know that. But nows the time to give input to the pastor on who we would like or what we want in them.
  15. We and a troop are chartered by a United Methodist church. I'm a member of the church. For the past ~20 years, our COR has been the church secretary. We had the same secretary for 19 years and when she was training her replacement, she told her all she had to do was sign the adult applications. Now the new secretary is leaving and I'd like to be able to voice an opinion on what I would like from the new COR. We do not have a rule in place that the COR has to be a staff member, just the way we've done it the past 20 years. Who is typically your COR? How do you (or would you if you could) go about choosing a new COR? What are you looking for in one? I know I have my ideas about what I want, but finding the right person that would be able to somewhat do a more active job and also want to do it may be difficult.
