  1. Buzzfeed - CSE Surbaugh - Girls - Scouter.com

    It's a culture war item, Culture war articles drive clicks.
  2. Buzzfeed - CSE Surbaugh - Girls - Scouter.com

    Definitely adjusted my profile. I don't normally care much about anonymity, but on this situation it's nice to have.
  3. Buzzfeed - CSE Surbaugh - Girls - Scouter.com

    Agreed. I thought about emailing the journalist, but I'd have to do it with an email with my real name on it, and I'm not comfortable being quoted and having my words twisted to mean something I didn't say.
  4. Buzzfeed - CSE Surbaugh - Girls - Scouter.com

    I think so as well. Many online journalistic outlets will use "unnamed sources" when they are talking about stuff they saw on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter or other message boards. If there is an email how come Miss Nashrulla did not quote it in it's entirety in her article?
  5. Family Scouting

    Captain Smith indeed did go down with the ship. Also:
  6. Buzzfeed - CSE Surbaugh - Girls - Scouter.com

    Wow. I don't trust Buzzfeed much, but if this is true. That being said, I honestly think it's fake. The grammar and word choice seem very off for a Corporate executive, even in an informal email. Buzzfeed is clickbait journalism. It was "fake news" before there was fake news. If this is true, it's greatly discouraging. I've edited this post so there are less "quotes from BSA members" to be put in a "BSA members aghast at CSE email."
  7. Family Scouting

    If you've tried those things, then you are facing the reality that the parents understand, and do not care. I'm not sure there is a solution to that.
  8. Family Scouting

    Teach the parents about the importance of the patrol method and how it benefits their boys. Alternatively, quit if you don't want to run a program like that. I know if my troop becomes family camping I'm out.
  9. Family Scouting

    I think I got it, but deleted it, as I get alot of Scouting related emails and I don't read ones I don't have to read.
  10. Upvotes and downvotes

    I appreciate the feedback Turtle. The Moderator team is having a conversation about this at the moment, and once we build a little consensus regarding it, we'll make a thread to get feedback.
  11. Upvotes and downvotes

    Thread got closed more for being totally unrelated to the original topic. Not the content of the totally off topic posts.
  12. Charge for basic training?

    Yea, I'd have a problem with that too. As far as I know my council is pretty good about keeping fees for training low or not at all.
  13. Charge for basic training?

    I don't think there is a problem with charging for the costs associated with a training. Materials, lunch, if those things are necessary. The training events I put on for my council and district I do not charge, but materials are also very light, and I don't provide lunch. I'd rather build in time for folks to go buy lunch or eat a packed one. If my District or Council told me I had to make money on training I put on, I'd tell them they'd need to find somebody else. There's enough costs to being a volunteer, and cost can be a real difficulty in getting people to attend training.
  14. Yea our method is similar. Figured that's what your troop would be doing!
  15. Are you able to do this without retesting in SM Conferences or BOR? If so, what does that procedure look like? I think some troops that struggle with scouts retaining skills proficiency could learn from that.
