  1. To test it, I mentioned it to my son tonight. And he said that is interesting but I am not going to go back and count up all my nights. I said we could do it together and he said no thanks. I asked him how many nights he thinks he has camped with cubs, troops, ship, crew. He said "a lot".... 🙂
  2. That is how it has been for Sea Scouting for a while. It works out pretty well.
  3. https://www.koat.com/article/los-alamos-boy-scout-dies-in-snowing-accident/35173800 Prayers for his family and friends. 😞
  4. Agreed, pretty simple process. You will need to fill out the BSA application again which is a pain. But your troop will help you with the process
  5. Yeah, Council flags are Blue. I have seen them. We have a big parade every year at the captitol so the flags come out.
  6. I saw this a couple days ago. Great actions by him. I looked to see if he was a scout, didn't find anything. But I did see that he regularly meets with Boy and Girls Scouts.

  12. Who knows. I certainly expected different answers but I have been in around 20 EBOR for scouts in multiple districts so I don't think it is coaching from a single source. I expected to hear first aid like the answers that you have gotten but got different ones.
  13. I don't think we are ready for opening that can of worms. It seems to me that there is a decent mix now for the required merit badges. I can't say that I can think of any MB that must be there that isn't and ones that exist that shouldn't be there. There are ones that the scouts may not like but they cover and reinforce part of the scout law and oath. When I ask scouts at their EBOR what merit badges they think are the most important ones it surprises me when they say Personal Management or the Citizenship MB's. But this answer happens a lot.
