  1. Citizenship in the Nation Resources

    Being in the National Capital Area Council - there is no shortage of historic sites & government offices! I think our scouts have an unfair advantage on that one.
  2. Would you wear unique council patches?

    I have a couple of uniforms. 1. My standard troop uniform. Has the standard CSP & Lodge Flap 2. My OA Adviser Uniform. Has the OA Centennial CSP & Lodge Flap set 3. My new Jamboree uniform - that one has the 2017 Jamboree CSP & Lodge Flap 4. My Venturing uniform - also has the 2017 Jamboree CSP & Lodge Flap Obviously, I had the last two put together for the Jamboree (I was staff), but now, they are just in the rotation. #1 is getting a little worn and will probably be replaced next year. I will probably maintain the standard look. Maybe, if I go to NOAC in 2020, I'll replace #2
  3. Rejected Adult Application

    You would be surprised how many people will think along the lines of "This is Scouts, what does the church have to do with it?"
  4. Fulfilling Merit Badge Requirments

    The merit badge counselor signs off on the requirements, not the scoutmaster. That being said, does the MBC think that he has completed all of requirement 8 as written, because there is a lot more to it than serving as the master of ceremonies for a coh. Did he plan the COH? did the PLC approve it? Did he write the script and prepare the program? And then serve as the MC? Still, the MBC signs off, not the SM, but in this case could the SM be signaling that the requirement isn't actually completed and it wouldn't be trustworthy to accept it as so? or, the SM just might not know what he is talking about.
  5. WSJ 2019 selection

    My best trade at the 2017 NSJ was my silky blue Jamboree neckerchief and big shiny slide for a Madagascar Scout's neckerchief and woggle. I traded a lot of patches, gave most of them to my son but this was one for my collection. I would imagine, from the USA something like an Eagle Scout neckerchief would trade a little better than many of the other things. I've also been told that entire uniforms get traded. There are still many NSOs with uniforms. My son really wants to make this kind of trade.
  6. I got the e-mail this morning. My son applied for the BSA contingent for the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019. I of course approved. What I don't know is how applicants are selected. It doesn't seem to be a first come first serve thing like the NSJ.
  7. Where are all the @DCPoliceDept vehicles speeding off too, they are in a bigger hurry than normal, flooring right in front of their HQ.

  8. RT @CommerceGov: U.S. Economy Grew At 3% Pace For 2nd Straight Quarter https://t.co/GobjzRGTLt #GDP

  9. Can non-Webelos Cub Scouts wear a den patch?

    When I was a cub scout my den had a cheer. It varied over the years. My favorite was Den 3 Den 3 we drank too much and have to pee!
  10. RT @RichardOnTwitch: That's it for #TwitchCon 2017! It was a really rad time and it was great seeing everyone. Next stop is Austin, TX for…

  11. Can non-Webelos Cub Scouts wear a den patch?

    No, non webelos cubs can't wear the patrol patch on their sleeve as the guide to awards and insignia specifically limits the use of the patrol patch to "Webelos Scout only" http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/CubScout_Insignia.pdf
  12. Integration and Ceremonies

    I don't think we required boys to wear shirts at the waterfront do we? I don't think it will be a problem. They will wear what they like.
  13. Integration and Ceremonies

    That was a rule in the 80's? Wow. I feel like 90% of the things I did in my late 80's / 90's era scouting were against the rules.
  14. I'm assuming that these adults are not paying their own registration fees. This isn't a practice I agree with and what I would work to change. A scout pays his own way, the scouters should be setting that example. I wouldn't take on this role as the scoutmaster though, this is more of a committee chair job. Refer the parent's to the committee so you can focus on your SPL's program.
