  1. The programs of the past and present have been tailored to the needs and interests of each gender. This new program will probably be no different. Sometimes themes will be the same, but the implementations are different.

    Scouting Magazine - betting the farm on girls

    There's probably going to be a lot more of these storms as BSA moves in this new "market" with parents that have no previous Scouting experience. This was interesting... and frightening.

    Fees? What are packs charging?

    Is that even possible? I thought councils were regional monopolies.
  4. That BSA is a government program or directly funded by tax dollars (which can be true in some ways, I suppose). And that “religion has no place in scouts.”

    How Many Uniforms Do You Have?

    One complete centennial tan uniform for my person. Another ripped and threadbare one in my bag of rags for wood finishing (I think there were some quality control issues when they first came out). One old Oscar de la Renta shirt in the closet for memory's sake. At one time I had a pile of uniforms gleaned from thrift stores but they've all been given away now. And who-knows-how-many Class Bs.

    72 hour rule

    I finally received a response to my email. I didn't get the same answer as @scotteg83. Nor did I get a clarification. Instead, she threw something entirely new out there. I'm just going to assume they don't really know the answer. My email: The response:

    Fishing, BSA, and PETA

    If we aren’t supposed to eat animals, then why are they made out of meat?

    This is what I've been told as well.

    Difficult Parent Interraction

    Second on this one. The father can be present but make the conversation between you and the scout. You're in an LDS troop, that 17-year-old Scout is probably going to be cooking all of his meals for himself in a year. You're not helping him if you cheat on the requirements.

    Incomplete archery MB

    My council camp has started giving us a form with everyone compressed onto a few pages in line item format. It's rather annoying. It would be nice for the boys to retain some token they could use to prove their accomplishment if the troop's records were ever in question.

    Oct 1, 2018 - GSS ends Patrol Method?

    I'll admit that we fall short on the patrol method when it comes to cooking. The boys pick whatever they want to eat (and I do mean whatever) and I guide them in making it until they can do it on their own. Otherwise, they would be eating hot dogs and lukewarm chili out of the can. Do your boys not ask you how you made this dish or that dish? Are they hiking the entire time or do you backpack to a location and stay for a day? Do they have quality backpacking gear?
