  1. I see BSA Trade marked "Scout Life" GSUSA VS BSA trademark lawsuit news: https://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/scout-me-out-girl-scouts-challenge-boy-79741/ "Another issue to consider is if BSA is offering its services to girls, can it also use the term GIRL in connection with SCOUT, SCOUTS or SCOUTING?"

  3. I wonder why 2 other councils would put up the same PDF? Were these directives disseminated to councils by GSUSA for each council to use and customize and post as they see fit?

  4. Yes, it is a GSUSA policy to have nothing to do with BSA. These orders from GSUSA "Do not participate in, allow, or promote any co-sponsored or co-branded events or programs that use either Girl Scouts’ name, logo, colors, or likenesses together with Boy Scouts. This includes long-standing events like Scouting for Food and Pine Car Derbies" "Do not participate in joint flag ceremonies. Girl Scouts has its own long and proud tradition and girls can and should provide these honors at community events" Source: http://www.gssne.org/content/dam/girlscouts-gssne/documents/GSSNE volunteer-action-guide-v1.pdf
  5. I have seen girls wearing the GSUSA pin on Scouts BSA uniforms. The GSUSA pin is the GSUSA "uniform", so it is super easy to wear the GSUSA uniform and the Scouts BSA uniform at the same time.
  6. A News Story about: Girls in Girls Scouts are joining Boy Scouts (I know it is Scouts BSA, but the Girls joining it are calling it Boy Scouts) They are staying in Girl Scouts, they enjoy being in both Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts at the same time and getting "the best of both worlds". https://www.marketwatch.com/story/girl-scouts-tell-moneyish-why-theyre-joining-the-boy-scouts-2018-05-04-988273 So you could have a group of REAL Girl Scouts GSUSA at a summer camp that are also Scouts BSA.

  8. News Story: How the Boy Scouts are Teaching Girls about True Womanhood BSA’s troops for girls are proving, ironically, to be a bulwark against the muddy seas of gender confusion. http://www.ncregister.com/blog/jenfitz/how-the-boy-scouts-are-teaching-girls-about-true-womanhood
  9. Girls doing good News Story: Redding all-girl Boy Scout troop among the first in nation REDDING — By the time Boy Scouts of America officially allowed girls to have a troop, about 10 girls in Redding had already earned badges, gone camping and defeated 19 male troops in an outdoor skills challenge. https://www.newstimes.com/local/article/Redding-all-girl-Boy-Scout-troop-among-the-first-13742483.php
  10. Girls doing good News Story: Girls in the Boy Scouts: How a Local Groop Broke Into the Nation's Biggest Boys-Only Club https://www.sonomacountygazette.com/sonoma-county-news/scouting-girls-in-boy-scouts *** Notice how these news stories talk about "girls in the Boy Scouts" and how girls are joining "Boy Scouts", there are even quotes from the girls about being happy that they are joining "Boy Scouts".

  12. These San Fernando Valley girls topped their competition in Boy Scout survival skills contest In an ‘unprecedented’ exhibition of survival skills, Troop 88 — a new all-girls entrant into the now inclusive Boy Scouts — used tenacity, smarts, cool and teamwork to top the field, mostly boys. The goal was to make history in an endurance-skill competition and beat 20 other patrols primarily comprised of all-boy teams already experienced in scouting skills. They rose to the occasion, topping numnerous categories in what officials called “unprecedented” fashion. “When it came time to hand out the overall awards for the Camporee and all of the points across the competition were tallied, the girls of Troop 88 were stunned to learn that they had tied for first place and had won the Presidential Award for the entire Camporee. It was unprecedented,” Andruscavage said. Andruscavage added that the most coveted recognition, the troop with the best scout spirit, also went to Troop 88. Calli admitted during the Camporee competition her peers didn’t know if they knew enough or practiced enough to succeed because they hadn’t been at it very long like a majority of their competitors. https://www.dailynews.com/2019/03/29/these-san-fernando-valley-girls-topped-their-competition-in-boy-scout-survival-skills-contest/
  13. Troop 15 Attends Inaugural All-Female Scout Camporee in Middle Tennessee https://williamsonsource.com/troop-15-attends-inaugural-female-scout-camporee-middle-tennessee/
  14. The 3 camporees before this that we went to over the last two years all have a scoring system that gave out awards for best time / distance / points scored. Everything seemed 100% fair at those camporees. This camporee looked like a normal camporee, until the awards were passed out and our troop got 2 ribbons that we did not deserve at all and troops that we knew had the best times and scores got nothing, we knew someone was playing games with who got the awards and it no longer mattered how well you did at the events. The adults running the show decided to do what they did, the youth had no part in what happened. I did not see anything done by the youth at this event that could be considered cheating. I saw adults step in and help when they should not have been, but the youth do not have much power to stop that nonsense.
  15. The council CEO/Scout Executive was on site for this event. He even stopped by our camp site and talked with us Saturday morning. I am suspicious the key3 are on board with this new way of scoring events at camporees. I now have a few questions for him next time I see him. My mind is blow by the fact that a new all girl patrol got top 3 in all 11 events and most of those being first place. The boys they are linked with only got 2 ribbons. 11 ribbons, that is amazing. . . No wonder the boys in my troop were wondering if there were 3 all girl patrols at a camporee if they would win all the events. I expect this is just the way things work now.
