  3. The World Scout Committee announced Rabbi Peter Hyman of Temple B’nai Israel in Easton, Md as the recipient of the Bronze Wolf Award, the highest Scouting award. "Hyman became the 377th individual and the first rabbi to have been honored and one of a handful of Jewish recipients worldwide. He is the first Jewish recipient of the Bronze Wolf Award since Alain Silberstein of France, the executive secretary of the International Forum of Jewish Scouts, who was named in 2016. The rabbi was selected to receive the award for his work encouraging interfaith dialogue as the first chairman of
  4. Century motion to "The Disclosure Statement Hearing shall be adjourned from April 29, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) to a date that is at least 28 days after the Debtors file the Settlement Trust Documents, including the Settlement Trust Agreement and the Trust Distribution Procedures and the sections of the Plan that describe the contributions by the Local Councils and Contributing Chartered Organizations." https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/885904_2568.pdf Above is rather damning of the Miami meeting and the Debtor's incomplete plan submission. "Century an

  6. Please reread what @David CO posted below. My take is he wants to screen kids to better protect them from predators, not exclude them.
  7. Since Feb, the majority of new Covid-19 cases in TX, MN, FL, MA, MI, GA is the more contagious B.1.1.7 (U.K.) variant . What is concerning for summer camp is that 12-19 year olds appear more susceptible to this covid variant. State restrictions are being reinstated for school activities - spring sports, proms,... will summer camps be next? https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2021/04/02/public-health-experts-are-concerned-about-new-covid-variants-in-massachusetts https://www.masslive.com/coronavirus/2021/04/nearly-half-of-new-covid-cases-in-massachusetts-tied-to-uk-variant.html
  8. Moderator note: Be Kind. A quickly read post can be misread as offensive just as surely that a quickly written post can be miswritten as offensive. Be Courteous. Pause and calm, and then try a slower second read. If you still feel offended, reply "I'm not sure I understood your post, could you further explain?" RS @MattR @John-in-KC
  9. I split the Eagle brand discussion to here from the old, now locked, Chapter 11 - announced topic. RS @MattR @John-in-KC
  10. I moved the last 20 hours of bankruptcy related content from Chapter 11 - announced which is now locked to start this new topic. Please stay on topic. Thanks, RS @MattR @John-in-KC
  11. This loooong topic which became impossible to navigate during the big slow is now locked , however the Chapter 11 discussion continues in new topic Also, the recent embedded Eagle discussion now has its own separate topic RS
  12. Agree, the Debtor and Victims Groups are too far apart on a "plan", but we now have a proposed individual claim from both sides - $6000 vs $811,215 So much money and time wasted, so little progress! Remember the BSA first hired Sidney Austin back in Dec, 2018 to develop the first reorg plan (Feb, 2020). Yeh, blame it on covid. Some random Saturday thoughts. Maybe the Judge will rule: - that Local Councils are independent business entities (as BSA states) and remove them (and their assets) entirely from the BSA bankruptcy case. The bankruptcy case simplifies (?) to Debt
  13. We, the members of scouter.com, include scouts as well as scouters. The content is public, the link has been published, and IMHO the decision to view should be left to the individual member. Legally aren't these numbers criminal allegations? How many were criminal convictions? Those were my thoughts in moderating that post. RS
  14. @ThenNow, I deliberately did not post the explicit abuse categories from the Court document on this scout forum. For those interested, I previously provided the link and page number (above). It is publicly available. Upon reflection I should have provided a content warning. RS @MattR @John-in-KC

  17. THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF TORT CLAIMANTS’ OBJECTION TO DEBTORS’ THIRD MOTION FOR ENTRY OF AN ORDER EXTENDING THE DEBTORS’ EXCLUSIVE PERIODS TO FILE A CHAPTER 11 PLAN AND SOLICIT ACCEPTANCES THEREOF excerpts: More than a year into the chapter 11 cases, the Debtors are unable to propose a confirmable plan. Their plan proposes an inadequate contribution by 253 non-debtor Local Councils and thousands of Chartered Organizations seeking non-consensual third-party releases of 84,000 childhood sexual abuse claims. The non-consensual releases and the channeling of those claims to a trust wil

  19. Delivered virtually. I do not know if a video is available but here is two page report. There is no explanation of membership reduction or mention of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy. https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2021/03/RTTN_8.5x11.pdf
  20. Some questions after 15 years. Which study recommendations were tried? Were they successful? How have these Diverse Markets changed?
  21. As stated, the opinions article was written by two Anthony Wayne Area Council staffers: Tammy Taylor, Director of Development, and Phil Ferguson, Summit District Executive with references to a 2006 study "Reaching the Next Multicultural Generation" by New American Dimensions. I found the following: Powerpoint Presentation of study https://slideplayer.com/slide/14893104/ Successful Marketing: Tapping into Diverse Markets (pdf) In 2006, two studies show how Scouting can meet the needs of diverse communities. The first study, Reaching the Next Multicultural Gene
  22. Rapid Testing for Summer Camps - Texas March 30, 2021: Gov. Abbott announced he’s teaming up the Texas Division of Emergency Management to create a COVID-19 rapid testing program for Texas youth summer camps. First in line was Circle Ten Council Scout Executive Sam Thompson. "We have already made an application to the state to acquire some of those rapid tests," he said. The Department of State Health Services also announced revised health recommendations this month for upcoming summer camps. For Thompson, to keep his doors open, his camps will remain socially distant and
