  1. Update - The DE has decided (read shamed or coerced) to drive 180 miles one way next Wednesday to plead the Council's case with the Unit parents. As far as I can tell, this is the very first time a DE has darkened the door in this town. Also, did some more digging, found this jewel from the Council's web-site: ~ The Partnership for Scouting asks every unit to support the Council with $145 per youth member. This contribution may be realized through Friends of Scouting, popcorn sales, other unit fundraisers, or a combination of all three methods. The Partnership for Scouting recognizes
  2. A local Troop I am involved with has been getting a lot of pressure from the Council to donate to the Council, mostly because the Council is in deep debt. To the tune of millions of dollars. The Troop is a small unit, 4 - 8 boys, and frankly, doesn't have any funds to donate. The Council is demanding $50 per boy for FOS, as well as at least $1,000 minimum from the Troop as a whole.

Parent A realizes that she over reacted, expressed apology to me and SM. Leader B and husband will not accept any apology. Leader B
  5. Here is a situation that just came up in our Troop. Any suggestions on how to address it would be great! When the Troop got back from an outing, a parent and one of our Leaders had a physical altercation, ie: the Leader pulled the parent off of another boy, they were wrestling. The parent got upset, picked up her Scout, who was not involved, and went home. She then contacted the police, who contacted the leader at home. Both the leader and her husband are leaders in our Troop. Now, the two leaders have told the SM that if the Scout (again, was not involved) comes back to a meeting, they w
