  1. Net means revenue less expenses. So, profit (or loss in this case). You would have to know the expenses charged to really know. Was the Development personnel salary included? How about the SE? Did your camp charge for use of its facility separately? Any allocation of operating overhead to support (which might have to get paid even if you didn't have event?) Worth asking about though if they are not profitable and costing cash.......
  2. Shooting Sports – Fiesta! September 18-24, 2022 –PHILMONT TRAINING CENTER https://www.philmontscoutranch.org/ptc/ptc-conferences/ Register by this link. The Shooting Sports Fiesta is an innovatively spicy program for BSA Shooting Sports. We will be introducing you to several zesty activities to do with all your Scouts. Some examples of things being planned: · Shoot rimfire rifles out to 200 yards!!!! · Introduce and shoot a rimfire Shooting Competition · Muzzle loading shotguns – What a blast · Know Your Limi
  3. New manual has been released into the wild. Go to the page to see if updates are occurring..... https://www.scouting.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Shooting-SportsManual_02.11.22.pdf
  4. 1. No. MBC are registered as Code 42 or 42F (required to pay fee). The District Dean of MB will OK the skill sets required and approve the MBC (hence District involvement). The MBC has the option to list as "Troop Only" or willing to accept any scout. 2. No. They are generally all listed on a district wide available list. However, as noted they have option to be their Troop only 3. Answered above.
  5. When you don't look, you don't see the very problem that is in front of you. So, to answer...No....
  6. @GiraffeCamp Please reach out to me to discuss further. glaacshootingsports @ gmail .com BSA and Shooting Sports should always be inclusive. I have been advocating and promoting this for years.
  7. What are the issues you would want to see covered for DEI with regards to shooting sports?
  8. Awesome posts. FYI. Full Blackpowder Instructor course is being offered at Philmont Training Center Sept. 26-Oct 2. Will cover both the Basic course and the Instructor course. W
  9. So, it appears that National is eliminating certain sub-committees for specific outdoor programs. Why in the world would you shut down successful teams that support local councils in the delivery of our core programs? This is not an issue of a professional being let go, but telling volunteers they are no longer to offer support in your area. Isn't outdoor program the core of what we do?
  10. Who is allowed to wear the "National Committee" shoulder patch? Is it only those directly on the board, or does it include membership on the sub-committees?
  11. Interesting question came up, that I can not find an answer too. Why was the Beaver selected for the Silver Beaver? Beaver, Antelope, Buffalo.... Shouldnt have been a Deer? (I know there was a Fawn for awhile)....... So, why a beaver?
  12. BSA is not Babysitters of Anyone. Inform the mom that we are volunteer run organization. As such, we look forward to the helping a wide range of youth with their advancement in the program. However, that only happens when the adults volunteer to help guide the youth. Given that her child requires additional attention, this is a great program for her to go get trained and be an assistant den leader. This will insure that her child experiences the best of the program. Ask "dont you want the best for your child?" Then state that the volunteering to help will fulfill that desire. Ther
  13. Context is important. Privacy about a DUI and loss of license, while still driving their kid? Privacy about domestic abuse or drug dealing? Privacy about a medical condition. Also, while not an ASM, still a parent in the Troop? Danger to themselves or others? You really need to be much more specific if you are seeking moral/ethical guidance on disclosure. A recent bankruptcy was caused by this very issue.......
  14. The Charter Org. Rep (COR) is responsible for the leadership of the Troop. While I would go to the district first and ask about any issues, the ultimate person to decide on leadership is the COR.
  15. Anyone out there putting together a virtual Halloween event for Cubs? I am doing some videos for our council. Would like to share with councils doing the same.
  16. Thank you all. The feedback on setting it up was well noted, as was the cost. We are now looking at Flipgrid as well. I hear they are going to address virtual on the National call next Thursday. I am going to wait to hear that outcome and recommendations. But, thank you again for the input, it is appreciated.
  17. Any scouters out there familiar with a product called Canvas? Used by teachers to put together a landing page and center point for running an online classroom. Interested in use in virtual scouting events. Please contact me.
  18. "Scout, when you bring your son/daughter to show what you did for an Eagle project; will you be proud of this accomplishment?" Will you be able tell him/her how you lead your team in getting this done and how you overcame obstacles? This is your chance in Scouting to leave a legacy, does this represent the best in you? Would could you do to make this a project better, so that every young scout in the troop points to it as the best they have been involved with?
  19. First stop will be https://www.scouting.org/awards/journey-to-excellence/ You can see all the resources and were to find them. There are sections that explain where the data is coming from and how to retrieve it. Next, you will realize that it usually requires one of the professional staff to have access. Then, you will find they either ignore your request or do not know how to find what you need. Refer back to step one. The idea of coffee for the Register is best one......(but I would bring box of chocolates) Lastly, garbage in garbage out for the data. Most is from ScoutNet (cont
  20. I am pretty sure this is listed as a prohibited activity. Non-motorized ride in a glider for Scouts BSA youth?
  21. Probably afraid you'll get pancake sauce on uniform...........can you imagine what the uniform police would have to say then.......🤣
