    Cyber Chip

    This troop has a cached 2012 copy of the #4 mini-activities http://troop125ny.org/CyberChip/BSA_Mini_Activities.pdf.
  2. So upon further research it appears the Scout rank pocketknife change was effective 1/1/2019 and the First Class camping change was done back in 8/1/2017 (prior to my Scouts BSA involvement) The point of the May 14 2019 "program update" is merely to point out the 14th edition handbooks have wrong language in print.
  3. Changes to First Class and Scout rank requirements https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/program-updates/
  4. The recently updated IOLS curriculum makes reference to "Scouts BSA Handbook for Girls" (No 39006). https://www.scouting.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/3364018OLskills_Aug.pdf Anyone seen this in the wild? EDIT to fix title
  5. PDF has the new language. The "online" still has the old language. This is the full PDF version that contains updates as of May 2018. The online version will be updated shortly. After June 1, 2018 you may refer to the online version for the most updated information.
  6. G2SS updated and says this now about required female leaders

    End of Year w/out Rank complete

    Inconsistent messaging from BSA . They also put out this FAQ after the 2015/6 changes: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/program_update/pdf/Cub Adventure Program FAQs.pdf They make it clear that while there are two ranks, its still only a "Webelos" den. Also says only new 5th graders should go directly toward AOL rank. Doesn't say 4th graders must stop working on Webelos after 4th grade From pg 5 Only boys who join Cub Scouts in their fifth-grade year should, after completing their Bobcat requirements, begin working directly on Arrow of Light requirements. All other Cub Scouts would work on earning the Webelos rank first. From pg 6 Q: Are boys in the fifth grade referred to as Arrow of Light Scouts? A: Boys who are earning the Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks are Webelos Scouts and are members of Webelos dens

    End of Year w/out Rank complete

    Thanks for highlighting this. "shall" doesn't mean "must" but obviously the intent here is for 5th grade boys (assuming non-LDS) should be shifting their focus to Arrow of Light rank. Interestingly I can find no other official BSA literature where they refer to an "Arrow of Light" den.

    Are you saying you only give first year Webelos until May 31st? They can earn Webelos rank at any point up until they age out of Cub Scouts.

    Unit Leader Webinar for Early Adopters

    Its likely something put out by national. It was also mentioned around the 14:30 minute mark of this video to Councils https://livestream.com/bsa/nationalcouncil/videos/167434394
  12. For those Councils doing early adopter program for family scouting, there was supposedly so called "Unit Leader Webinar" that was going to be available after January 8th. Anyone know where to track this down?
