    Service Stars, Consecutive?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. In the end, I think he's just glad to help out. I'd say we'll probably go with the registered years. We're just glad to have him aboard.

    Bridging over and Webelos uniform

    You can always buy a whole new uniform if you can afford it. It will save the time of taking off the old patches plus it will be a cool keepsake. I still have my old Cub Scout uniform from 30 years ago.

    Service Stars, Consecutive?

    I agree. And honestly, I don't think it really matters for him, he's never been big on self recognition, he just loves Scouting and loves helping out.

    Grand Canyon Council seeks liquor license for fundraiser

    I personally have no problem with this. I'd say that it will generate a lot of revenue.
  7. While I agree that some things shouldn't be sold on ebay, I can't really be too upset about this. I collect patches and sometimes the only way you can get them is from ebay. I don't have the whole set of the centennial rank patches and I'd love to get it. Honestly, I'll probably go to ebay to do it.

    New Square Knot?

    There are so many discontinued knots or custom/spoof knots out there. I collect them, you'd be surprised the variety that are out there.

    OA ?????

    Once you are a member, you are always a member. You obviously have to pay dues to be an active member, but you don't have to go through an Ordeal or anything to rejoin.

    Has the OA Lost It's Luster?

    I really hope it isn't. OA is probably my favorite part of Scouting. It's definitely lost some of it's visibility. It seems that the only time that regular Scouts seem to see OA is when they do elections once a year and then at the call out ceremony. Some of my best Scouting memories are from OA, it will always be special to me.
  11. I always thought that was ridiculous personally. I was a firearms instructor for a while, I think it's important for scouts to learn firearms safety and use. It's always been a part of scouting, hopefully it always will be.
