  1. The two linked troops operate independently of each other in programs and events except for a handful of joint events a year (tree fundraiser, scouting for food, CO clean-up and recruiting event). So the ASMs of one troop do not work directly or attend outings of the other troop. This makes lot of sense. The CC's new rule hinders the committee members getting to know the troop and its scouts, unless CC makes other provisions. I'll point that out and also ask how the BOR Coordinator feels about the change. Thanks everyone's replies.
  2. Our boy and girl troops are linked by having one CC, COR, and Secretary but with separate Treasurers, Advancement Chairs and Scoutmaster teams. A handful of adults registered as ASMs in one troop and as committee members in the other troop since they have youth in both units. Our CC just announced that the committee members who also served as ASM in the other troop cannot sit on BORs in the troop they are registered as committee members. Can the CC make that rule? This doesn't affect me personally but I know a few ASM in my troop who are committee members in the other troop will be d
  3. Our troop uses TroopKit for event and meeting calendar, event sign-ups, carpools and emails. Most deadline dates are set a week before the campouts and the system automatically sends a reminder to those undecided two days before signup deadline. It's simple for scouts to set up and coordinate sign-ups. We use Quickbooks and scout accounts to collect funds and charge for outings.
  4. These are all great suggestions! I'll look up these options to see which cost the least. Thank you!
  5. (Please re-post to the appropriate section if needed.) My troop has a crew of eight flying to Sea Base this summer and we reserved a 12-passenager van to go sightseeing and travel to Sea Base, for passengers and luggage. The G2SS Transportation section said "Any vehicle designed to carry ten or more passengers should have automobile liability insurance limit of 1,000,000." Does anyone have experience renting a 12+ passenger van who can tell me how they purchase their insurance? Do you up your own auto liability insurance to 1,000,000 for the duration of the trip or buy through the re
  6. Were you able to decide on Out Island or Key Adventure? My troop is sending 2 crews to Sea Base next year and we are considering Coral Reef Sailing or Out Island Adventure. Which one is more adventurous? TIA
  7. Love rain kilt, light, packable, breathable, easy to put on without taking off backpack. My boys did 50-milers and Philmont with it.
  8. Our Council requires staffers and adult leaders to be vaccinated to attend summer camp. WA state.
  9. Our COR is present at these meetings. Can a CO ask the mandate from one group (a troop) and not for their other groups (pack, church youth group)?
  10. That's our thoughts too - follow the guidance of the CDC but not requiring more. We plan to continue wearing masks in close contacts outdoors and no scheduling of indoor activities for the remainder of the year.
  11. Has anyone's unit require their leaders to be vaccinated before attending in-person event? Not from Council, not from CO, but mandate by the troop. My unit is trying to put it into policy which some feel should be a personal choice if and when the adult decides to get the vaccine. (I hope I put this in the right category. )
  12. Our troop has a similar situation. A pack said they will bring their AOL girls to our Webelos Outreach campout. We plan to have a linked troop next year so we make plans at camp for the girls and their parents. But won't this be daunting to troops that don't plan on having a linked troop? I understand doing activities with a troop count toward advancement but suing the unit for discrimination because the unit only has boy scouts and doesn't want to set up a linked troop; that's forcing the troop to go against their program.
  13. 👍 The Secretary dislikes the DL because he's not doing enough? Humm... how about some appreciation for DL's time and effort towards the youth. Try working the team angle, as others suggested. Work with your DL a plan that delegate tasks to the parents, then get all the parents together, explain the situation and get them to buy-in to the team leadership. Some of the Bears must have been in Cubs since Tiger so I gather they like the program. Even if the secretary is correct the other parents won't step up, they might if the den otherwise would ease to exist. Sell your program.
