    So it Begins: Great Salt Lake Council lays off 21 employees

    I'd be willing to bet alot of the western region DE's are LDS. There's a reason we call BYU the DE School....they pump out professionals.

    90% of their council is LDS? Sorry, but no sympathy for those guys. They've been riding easy streak their whole careers.

    Must a boy be on the Charter to attend Dad and Lad?

    Insurance question? My time to shine! Here is the expert from the BSA Council Accident and Sickness insurance plan: "Only non-scouts, non-scouters or guests who are being encouraged to become Leaders or Scouts are automatically covered while in attendance at a meeting or unit activity or while traveling as a group to or from such an activity. No other guests are covered." I've heard this is only a one time use coverage too.

    BSA Youth Advisory Panel

    facilitated by a BSA professional. Well that seems odd? National Pro's are so out of touch it's not even funny, this seems like a better spot for one of the national commissioner folks. And to echo some of the other posters, Dallas ignores volunteers and council pro's all the time, what makes us think they are going to listed to what Scouts have to say?

    2020 Insurance Fees at Recharter

    Ouch. MCC must be in some serious financial trouble.

    Which square knots to wear and why

    It's always been the unofficial rule that for Volunteers it's a max of 3 rows and for Professionals it's a max of one row. Again, that's unofficial. But I think anything that goes over is too "look at me"

    Council denies unit fundraiser

    The most surprising thing out of all of this is that a unit actually followed the correct procedure and submitted a fundraising application

    Flat Council Support fee coming to your unit?

    This is actually an interesting theory I have thought about too, but in a different way. I think one of the big reasons we are seeing the rise of "Mega Councils" (ie. Chicago, Michigan, St. Louis, Indy) is to create a larger corporate structure of Professionals to offset the lack of Volunteers in the BSA now. In a lot of places, DE's are just trying to keep afloat sinking Districts.

    Why are Cub Scout uniforms and universal clothing items?

    When I was talking to the National Director of Cub Scouting, he said they are moving away from the rank specific uniform items, minus the neckerchief and hat. They are just trying to get rid of inventory.

    Flat Council Support fee coming to your unit?

    Personally, what the heck is the $24 "held by the council then billed to national"?? Also, charging units a "council support fee" is such BS....
