  1. It depends. Does your pack advance its dens to the next den level at the end of the school year? If so, when is the last day of school? Your Pack Committee has some discretion to grant time extensions at the end of the Cub Scout program year:
  2. I agree with @5thGenTexan . I would recommend using the Protect Yourself Rules adventure in place of the Cyber Chip: https://www.scouting.org/programs/cub-scouts/preview-adventures/protect-yourself-rules/
  3. Sounds kind of similar to the videos that the BSA used to have online for some of the (older) rank requirements for Tenderfoot - First Class. You can still find the videos at YouTube: BSA rank videos
  4. Don't use it! Go to scoutbook.com/mobile/, and login to regular Scoutbook. After you log in at regular Scoutbook, go to your calendar where you should see a Hide DLE events button. Alternatively, you can move the calendar events into the past. Having said that, the Resources section of the Den Leader Experience is kind of nice. There is a free pdf of the Den Leader Guide.
  5. If I remember correctly from a conversation a while ago, I think the "white sheet" @Eagledad is referring to is his council's version of the blue card.
  6. Updated BSA COVID-19 FAQ (advancement) are at the following link: https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/covid-19-faq/
  7. I would leave the individual requirements blank (SC 5b and FC 6a) in Scoutbook if the Scout has not passed them yet. Scoutbook has a Notepad & Comments feature that is available for each individual requirement and at the bottom of each rank, merit badge, and award. You could add a note to First Class / Star / Life ranks and maybe one or more of the individual requirements that the Scout still needs to pass the swim test (the first requirement for each rank, Scoutmaster conference, board of review, etc.). At Scoutmaster conferences and boards of review, check to see if the BSA's
  8. Not sure if this helps, but there is a Prohibited Activities FAQs that says:
  9. Help a Venturer earn the Silver Hornaday Award & Venturing Summit Award by helping to pick up 1 million pieces of trash by August 30 (his project close date). Anyone who spends at least 2 hours on the project and has their collection reported on the project's Google Form is eligible for the Messengers of Peace award (environmental dimension). You can find more information at the following links: Bryan on Scouting: Venturer’s conservation project involves worldwide effort to pick up 1 million pieces of trash Facebook: 1,000,000 Piece of Trash Great service project for all
  10. If they are rising 5th graders (going in to the 5th grade this fall), then they can choose to stop working on Webelos and just move on to AOL. It's difficult right now, but if you can get your den leaders to have some online meetings, then you should be able to meet the den requirements -- even if you can't meet in person. Not sure if you've seen the BSA's COVID-19 FAQs or not, but: Hope this helps some!
  11. Just curious, but why was the Unit Commissioner acting as a member of the Life BOR? Was he just supposed to be observing, but then got carried away?
  12. @5thGenTexan When my son crossed over at age 10 1/2, he could not swim. We got him into private swimming lessons at a local YMCA. It took several months with a very patient instructor, but he did eventually learn how to swim. I agree with @Eagle94-A1, swimming is an important life skill, and I'm glad we stuck with it, and he learned how to swim.
  13. The only way I know to limit the ads is to use pop-up blockers, like Adblocker Ultimate, Ghostery, etc.
  14. The BSA adult application says: "The chartered organization representative is approved by the head of the chartered organization." As a general rule, the person with the power to appoint also has the power to remove / fire.
