  1. 2017 and 2021 we were issued a Crew flag, certainly wasn't a cotton 3'X5' flag by any means but our Crew Leader was issued one and told to take it on the trail with them both times.
  2. When I was a Troop Guide for a patrol, one of the participants wanted a private ceremony. So we met at a steakhouse and with his wife and mom there, I did a small meaningful beading on the patio. Same patrol, another gentleman asked for his beads/cert/necker to be sent to his house. Did 3 others at either Troop meetings (2) or Roundtable (1) The last course I staffed, they seem to like the group beadings, so the Course Director sets up a day and anyone that was staff or a participant come to the local camp and those that are "finished" get beaded. This one usually includes a pot
  3. 12 step process It was referred to but here is the actual process. Don't take any shortcuts or assume anything! Get your professional involved as soon as possible! Everything here is in order and should be followed in order...
  4. I will be there. I will be our Lodge's adult contingent leader and as luck would have it my son will be the youth leader. Tons of classes, trainings, fun events, and fellowship. I had a blast in '18 and look forward to going again!
  5. From my experience this last summer- I would not expect any type of variance or exception for cavalcade. Thankfully we all made it under the 200lb limit but one of our guys was super close...
  6. My understanding for question #2- Withing 6 months of the bk case being approved Grand canyon council will list for sale our properties on the commercial market. We then have approximately 3 years to sell said property or it will then be basically signed over to the trust. I would assume you want as much as possible for each property since the final amount due is an actual dollar amount and not a property specification. IMO-Seems the settlement wants cash not properties but would take them once a good faith effort is made.
  7. Grand Canyon Council has decided to sell Camp Geronimo and 10 acres of the Heard Scout Pueblo. 7M was the number we were given... Grand Canyon Council announcement
  8. What week are you going? We are 617-CY (June 17th) and am really excited! Can't wait to go back HOmE!
  9. Fellowship/Vigil last weekend in August, small group activities and rotations. Masks and increased sanitation. Ordeal this weekend, same idea as above. We will be following the protocols set forth from national about ceremony modifications. Essentially no contact is the big picture...
  10. Couldn't let this one pass- Sorry David you are wrong about this one, period. We work very closely with our affiliated tribe and have their full blessing to wear what we wear and do what we do. Our Lodge has 2 OA advisors that are Native American that work closely with our youth and adults to make sure we do not cross boundaries. There is also a National committee that works with Tribes all across the country. After the last update from National about clothing we decided to revisit our choices for "ceremonies". I put that in quotes because it is nothing more than a play with actors, lines
  11. Scoutbook should have it listed IF your council uploads the list into Scoutbook.... My Dashboard-> My Account-> My Positions-> At the bottom it should show all of your current positions and if registered as a MBC then they should all be listed out.
  12. Waiting on National to publish guidelines, if they want to make that available. I don't think they will IMO. The logistics of getting everything right is going to be difficult at best.
  13. Ours are printed and then laminated
  14. Why not just increase the patrol members to 8 per patrol? The syllabus allows for 6-8 youth per patrol. With 8 patrols that would take you up to 64 participants. The minimum size of a Troop for NYLT is 4 patrols, but I think it is much better to have the interaction of 6-8 patrols than it is with 4-5 patrols. I do agree with having 10 TG's though, seems one or two always drop out at the last minute or aren't quite up to speed yet by course time.
