    What's in a name?

    An attempt that was completely bungled. In my council, the townhall and survey were offered only to a “select group” (according to a council employee). I too would love to see the internal results.

    Scouts BSA Handbook for Girls?

    I suppose that depends on your council. Assuming both of our camps stay open, both will be coed (The registration forms are eerily empty and there's talk of compressing everyone into one. My theory is that it might have something to do with council having no published plan in the leader guide about showers, latrines, etc. Hopefully all the absent troops are planning individual summer camps.)

    Scouts BSA Handbook for Girls?

    Come next month, anything larger than a troop event will be de facto coed (and depending on your troop, everything might be coed). I don't see how anyone could be lulled into believing the programs are separate.

    Mess kit cooking

    To the contrary, I know a few different people that have suffered through lugging aluminum dutch ovens out to favorite backpacking campsites and buried them. I believe some have been out there for ten years or more.
  5. Ingredients 1.5 lbs. ground beef 1 oz. packet taco seasoning mix 0.5 c. sweet onion, chopped 4 green onions, chopped 8 oz. package cream cheese 1 c. salsa 12ish small tortillas (we usually use wheat) 1 c. pepper jack or Mexican blend cheese, shredded 2.5 c. green enchilada sauce 4 oz. black olives, sliced (optional) Directions 1. Brown beef. Add taco seasoning and transfer ingredients to a large bowl, reserving drippings. 2. Cook both kinds of onions in the hot drippings until tender. Add to seasoned ground beef along with cream cheese and salsa. Stir the mixture until the cream cheese melts completely. 3. Spread a thin layer of enchilada sauce around the bottom of a 12" dutch oven. Next, add a layer of tortillas (we usually tear them up to get an even layer). Add a layer of meat mixture. Finally, add a sprinkling of cheese. 4. Repeat step three until the ingredients are used up, usually about three to four layers of each. 5. Top with olives. 6. Bake at 350° F (16 briquettes above and 8 below) until cheese melts completely, about 20-30 minutes. Serve with salsa and sour cream. Steps one and two can be done at home in the interest of time and cleanup.

    And so it begins

    Unfortunately, I disagree with you on what would occur if this were to be put into public practice. Like the proverbial camel putting his head in the tent, it would only open BSA up to more pressure to drop the religious requirement. How many "I'm a scout but BSA won't give me my Eagle" op-eds would we see before National caves to peer pressure? I would bet you could count them on one hand.

    And so it begins

    How would an atheist fulfill his duty to God or be reverent? Before anyone says it, claiming God doesn't exist ergo nothing is required of me ergo I have fulfilled my duty to God (as I have often seen on Reddit) does nothing but mock Scouting's ideals. By that metric, I can go from Scout to Eagle in two weeks.

    And so it begins

    "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you,"Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin." John 8:11. Jesus associated with sinners in an attempt to change them, not become one of them. Do you want to allow atheists into BSA for the express purpose of helping them find God? Sounds like a great idea.

    Adult Recongnition

    Maybe I’m mistaken, but I don’t believe a district signature was always required. At any rate, I know for a fact that my local scout shop will sell you one no questions asked.

    Per WSJ -BSA may declare bankruptcy

    I need a reaction that's both laughing and ugly crying.

    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    Unfortunately, that's only one of two metrics. If BSA attracts two million girls but loses its intended nature in the process (for the reasons described above), I wouldn't count it as a success.

    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    Simple, Scouts BSA = Scouts But Scouts Asexually.

    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    Today on the Scoutcast podcast, I heard "boy BSA Scouts", "girl BSA Scouts", "boy Scouts BSA", and the forbidden "girl Scouts BSAs." Maybe Susans isn't such a bad idea.

    Bear Grylls is new World Scout Ambassador

    Okay, maybe I shouldn't be too critical of the guy...
