  1. Please help me with your words of wisdom on whether to do a joint Eagle Scout Court of Honor or request to do a private one for my son Background: My son got his Eagle Scout Rank a couple days ago. He did a unique project that required many helping hands, most of whom, students & adults, were not in his immediate troop. They show interests to be part of to his Eagle Scout Ceremony. The relationship and the respect to my son is deep during and even more after the project. To see a glimpse of the magnitude of the project, you can view the finale of his Financial Literacy Education Even
  2. @desertrat77 if that is the case, we'll check to see if the casino makes exceptions for those Scouts less than 18 yrs old to take the bus or not. Casino patrons can use some pop-corns at the roulette table. Putting the money on pop-corn will sure be a lesser risk.
  3. Hi Rick, I am on your side on your general philosophy. We have become a paranoid society. Look like I can take some input from you. Would you be kind to answer the followings: 1. Would you conduct your weekly scout troop meetings, consisting of 6 years old brownies and cub scouts, at a large park and ride location exclusively for gamblers who are strangers, come and go? This is a public park and not Casino park and ride location. It is being taken over by Casino Bus Operators to squeeze extra profits. Casinos wouldn't care because they are far-away and liability are not on them. 3. Wha
  4. Thank you everyone. I like the ideas of selling popcorn and may even has a dummy being swished in between. Joking aside, I looked around and can't find anything on BSA that would advise what to do. I assume BSA assumed that all selected locations are safe. This should be explicit on the Youth Protection Course. Everyone, if you have 10 seconds of time,please sign this petition if you feel fit for the betterment of the community and the nation as a whole - Your voice counts, especially when we tell the City Council, it is getting national attention. https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/prohi
  5. Here is the text of the petition and also the pictures. It is actually an uphill fight from what I was told as it will cost money to carry out ordinances. All we have is about 60 signatures from parents and the power may not be on our side. I like the idea of media but not sure how to approach it yet. https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/prohibit-casino-bus-and-casino-goers-using-westminster-ca-public-parks-as-park-and-ride.html Ellen F Gillespie Park and other public parks in the City of Westminster have been turned in to "Park and Ride" locations for Casino Bus Operators and the C
  6. Thanks Stosh, That is what we are trying to do through parents and neighborhood push to the City Council. My additional question is what role and responsibility of the Scout Leaders on this. Is it restricted by BSA rules to not interfere or speak up to the City as Boy Scout Leaders and thus leave the safety issues to parents? Is there anywhere in BSA handbook that states it? I am just trying to figure out Thanks Lu
  7. Sorry for the mangled title (cut/ paste and accidental click). Should be Casino Buses using public parks as Park and Ride, where Scouts meet. What should we do? Moderator Note: Title edited to what you intended. - NJCubScouter
  8. Everyone, Can you chime in your opinion on this to give advise on what Scout Troop and parents should do in the face of community right being stampeded. Over the pass several months, Casino buses from far away use the City Park as Park and Ride places for their Casino Goers. This is where our Scouts (cub, brownies, and others) carry out their activities. Daily, Casino bus come every hours. Several Casino patrons gather there and parked their cars their awaiting pickup. A number of strangers, as Casino Goers, come and mixed with the kids on the playground and take over-crowded parking lo
