    Girl Scouts Should Stay To Girl Scouts

    @NickWeaverplease refer to Topic locked
  3. Might be kind for Scouts to send notes of appreciation to Elder Nathan Philips. Let him know those youth are not representative of American youth. https://www.omaha.com/news/nebraska/omaha-tribe-member-in-spotlight-in-face-of-taunting-teens/article_475ee455-cf4c-510a-a9a1-2d29b25eb0f2.html My $0.02
  4. Maybe internet service providers are throttling YP online training along with Youtube and Netflix!

    After tomorrow I am hoping all the hype dies down

    @Mom2Scout welcome to scouter.com
  6. Interesting story about a former scout and Camp Hinds primitive skills counselor, Eri Martin, who manufactures traditional ash (not maple) pack baskets to fund his bachelor degree in adventure-based environmental studies at Unity College (ME) and a future wilderness school. His father, Scott Hinds is Camp Hinds (Pine Tree Council, Maine) ranger. Imagine raising money by using scoutcraft, primitive skills to hand make outdoor products. https://bangordailynews.com/2019/02/12/homestead/unity-student-carries-on-tradition-of-pack-basket-weaving/

    Without the spinning, I think.

    Ok then. More adventure, more advancement... more fun, less arguing. @MattR @desertrat77 @John-in-KC @LeCastor @NJCubScouter

    "Pencil Whipping" Requirements

    Good reminder. I'm sure many of us continue to slip up on the naming conventions but with the GSUSA is currently suing Scouts BSA over this, we need to be careful. Thanks.

    Decorum And Acting Scoutlike

    ??? Sorry, I am a bit confused about what this is about. You apparently corrected the misunderstanding of terminology in another thread?

    Cub Scout takes knee during pledge

    @Navybone welcome to scouter.com. Political protest in uniform isn't that an oxymoron? Back in the 60's, I can recall a few uniformed scouts remained seated for the pledge and national anthem. Talk about Brave. They were quietly protesting the Vietnam War. Later, they were instructed that scouts may civilly protest but not in uniform. Maybe the policies need further explanation. https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2018/10/23/can-packs-troops-teams-or-crews-participate-in-political-rallies/ My $0.02, P.S. An old scouter told me, Scouting is where you ask a scout what he was thinking and you get an answer.

    Cub Scout takes knee during pledge

    Agree. Please elaborate your thoughts on teaching citizenship and civil (scoutlike) protest to scouts. Can a scout write a letter to the editor about this issue and sign it. T. Jones, First Class Scout?

    Should scouts be allowed to protest while wearing the uniform? A time and place...?

    BEST - BSA Study

    Wasn't this done 3 1/2 years ago? Tufts (University) study confirms Scouting builds character in 6 areas.

    Eagle Scout Extension for new 2019 Scouts

    I think that is the root problem - adults afraid to confront. at the unit and council level and hence no quality control. I have seen scouts arrive with used uniforms complete with previous, unearned rank. The SPL or SM has a brief talk and problem solved.

    Lifeguard vs Aquatics Supervisor

    @PinkPajamas welcome to scouter.com . IMO, the more common aquatic activity need is BSA Lifeguard .

    Good analogy. IMO at the start of this Eagle Path that Scouts BSA generously provided and communicated, she should remove all insignia not officially earned and get to work. My harsh $0.02,
