  1. Looks awesome! Is this on the middle fork of the Flat Head river? Is there an age limitation?
  2. Has anyone ever done the hike from Elk Park flag stop on the Durango and Silverton RR to the Needleton flag stop? Here is a link. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/colorado/elk-park-to-needleton?mobileMap=false 36 mile point to point. I know it is beautiful because I have ridden the train a few times. I think the Scouts would get a kick out of riding the train to the drop off, doing the hike, and then meeting the train to take you back. We are low landers and I'm always afraid of altitude sickness.
  3. Fair points but in the end not my decision. CO has made it pretty clear since 2019 when the decision was made to allow girls. I think I know that fish in your signature picture. MTCBSA?
  4. My CO would not go for that at all. We would loose our Charter. That is something the BSA needs to consider if a co-ed decision is ever made. Many CO's won't support this and many Troops could be lost. I hope so too.
  5. Co-ed Troops might solve it for some but they will cause problems for others. Will every Troop have to be co-ed? Probably. Once you start there is no way back. My Troop wants to remain an all male Troop. The BSA implements co-ed Troops with the option to stay single gender Troops if desired. A girl or a transgender male or a transgender girl want to join my Troop. What leg does my Troop have to stand on? None because the BSA willingly or unwillingly just cut us off at the knees. We will argue that we are allowed to be a single gender Troop. They will argue that they don't car
  6. I just read this article before I saw your post. Unfortunately this is an issue we are likely to see more of. "But Skylar has been a member of the all male Troop for six years. What's the big deal if he identifies as a female now? We don't understand why he can't continue with the Troop? What are you going to do about this Mr. Scout Executive, Council, BSA? We're going to sue." Any bets on how long it will take the BSA to cave on this one?
  7. Didn't say that at all. What I said is that when and/or if any component of CRT is included in the training or merit badge I'M NOT TOUCHING IT WITH A TEN FOOT POLE. Are you saying that you would like CRT incorporated with DEI?
  8. "the minute" is Southern for when and/or if. Maybe not yet. Give it some time.
  9. I took the DEI volunteer training today and it wasn't terrible. Diversity, it is inevitable, even within the same race. Inclusion, of course we include all of our Scouts and Scouters. Pretty much common sense. Equity, I get it to an extent but it can also be used as a crutch. Be a good person. Treat others the way you would like to be treated and I think the world is a better place. The training goes over what any normal, high-functioning human being should already know and be doing. Now, the minute this training or merit badge includes components of CRT all bets are off and I won't to

  11. Has anyone taken the D, E & I in Scouting volunteer training available at my.scouting.org yet?
