    unfortunately we have to walk away

    Simply don't go. Our troop doesn't promote it or even acknowledge its existence. The Troop Committee finds qualified individuals to run such MB. Fishing Merit Badge - Mark Rose (just an example) Lawyers, Flight Simulator designer and Pilot for FedEx (Aviation MB) Exec from Sedgwick for Personal Management. Put the right people in place and there isn't any need for Eagle Required MB to be taken at a MB College. Remember I am only speaking about Eagle Required MB's.

    Some troops are just really strict on WHO does these MB classes. My son's troop is very much on top of providing "Quality" MD Councilors for the boys. This is NOT a race to see how many one can receive right? Rules at our troop, no Eagle required MB (except for Swimming) are allowed by anyone under 1st class. Troop also looks down on Merit Badge colleges (puppy mills if you will) To ea there on.

    BSA Folds Again

    Why should they have to? Our former Prez didn't have to.
  11. Might have to watch this one. I still wish they'd bring back "Are you Tougher than a Boy Scout " I enjoyed that show

    Scandal at Pinewood Derby

    Transitions (after "rank" I know it isn't rank) does not occur until they move up a grade or age change regardless of B&G. They are still a Tiger, Wolf or Bear.

    Scandal at Pinewood Derby

    I have to agree with David on this one. Now I don't understand the voting part, at ours ALL parents vote and all Leaders vote maybe next time consider ALL parties voting. This is nothing new or any concern, we have new people all the time show up to Pinewood Derby and some have won.

    Tip on the canvas switch back. Always wash the legs with this pants so that the fading is constant. Also they shrink quiet a bit so when they hem them up hem them inside so you can let them out as he grows

    A long time ago in a galaxy far far away....

    That's Awesome. You know a part of the Webelos "Building a better world" activities is connecting to a another brother scout somewhere else. Skype sounds like a good option here IF there wasn't a timing issue

    Ready to walk away from scouting

    I have to agree, and the only way I would stick around is IF I knew leadership was close to turning over.

    Choosing Troops

    That is correct, ask away. Start another topic though. Would it blow your mind even more if I also said I was a DC?

    Choosing Troops

    Its that troop with 30-40 boys, 3 or 4 patrols and wins majority of Camporee and no that does not always indicate boy led.

    Choosing Troops

    Well I was in the same boat a year ago, my son chose to go to the unit he felt he would enjoy the most so we make that 20 min drive to the better troop. I am the committee chairman to the local troop, I am trying to get them better. Not going to sacrifice my sons scouting adventure while I work to improve the troop.

    Square Knots...Are you game? (Just for fun)

    No you are right, 2 rows. I see 3 rows and Its doesn't bother me that much but when I see 3 and 4 rows then there is a problem.
