  1. @RememberSchiff I was waiting for you to post this, you are a great news finder. However, thought I'd get the pulse of the list on this release from yesterday: https://www.scouts.ca/news-and-events/news/2021/09/scouts-canada-introduces-vaccination-requirement-for-all-members Link to the FAQ's at the bottom of the announcement. For those that have not seen it the BSA's current position can be found here: https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/ "...We encourage everyone to consult with their physician and get vaccinated. It is our best hope for returning to normalcy in our Scou
  2. https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss02/#j if you reviewed Safety Afloat - #1 and #6 you will find the recommendation and the required skills training that this course could assist a leader in providing to the youth PRIOR to the float trip.
  3. Winston Churchill has been credited with saying: “Never let a good crisis go to waste? ”
  4. But it is also referenced in the GTSS. https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss13/ (which is part of the program materials, and you agree to follow when you sign up as a leader). https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/bsa-scouter-code-of-conduct/ Might also suggest review of communicable disease guidance for leaders which includes vectors: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-103(18)_Prev_of_CommunicableDiseases.pdf
  5. And yet when offered an opportunity to engage within the Service Territory structure (national) and be part of the solution moving forward look at the responses that followed.
  6. @CynicalScouter You do have an answer that addresses both safety and program integrity. Not the one you wanted but an answer all the same. If you have other questions your appropriate point of contact is your local council youth protection champion or council staff / Scout Executive to address your particular concerns.
  7. Currently recruiting for Safe Scouting Leads for the 16 NST's. If you think that's you, message me.
  8. I used to be a Beaver. A good old Beaver too....
  9. Have you talked with your council? National statement on COVID - https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/
  10. Hey I know that guy. @TAHAWK your council knows who to call if they have a question. There is no longer a volunteer facing interface outside the local council so any inquiry is going back to them,. And shooting at each other is still prohibited. In case you want to review other prohibited activities: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss07/#b
  11. Perhaps one of you could point out where it enables an CO to do events for others in the name of scouting on behalf of the local council or BSA? I don't think you are going to find that in there.
  12. Theories aside, perhaps one could review the CO agreement to see what is chartered or not? https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/membership/pdf/524-182_web.pdf RichardB
  13. https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss07/#b See #16 & 17 @InquisitiveScouter And don't worry, working on your suggestions on tool guidelines. RichardB
