  1. Thanks for the clarity as I now see your point. I first thought you were crazy, but you were like if this adult was so extreme in his patch policing, his actions could be taken the same way.
  2. @ThenNowHang around after the case is closed. You will see the same or bigger discussions on particular requirements of particular badges, uniform minutiae, and a million other esoteric important unimportant things!
  3. This is not at all true. It may not have been appropriate, but is not physical abuse.
  4. Yes, CORs are voting council members with seats on the district board. Thus their only “power” is on council wide votes and any bylaw provision that may or may not allow them to bring forth a motion “from the floor”. The council board and council executive board are approved by the voting members. I believe, though, those who hold the positions are chosen by a “nominating committee” which is like a pollitt bureau. Cuba and the Soviet Union had elections. No contested positions, but they were elected. 🙂
  5. All that you say is true. But what am I to do if I still believe in the program and my 3 girls and wife enjoy it? Damm the torpedoes and full speed ahead. KBO (keep buggering on) as Churchill said. I don’t serve on any national committees, so all I can do is my part “and leave nothing on the field”. It is all that most of us can do. Am I worried about the longevity as the program as we’ve know it? Sure. Are things going well in My neck of the woods? Yes. Has my boyhood camp that I spent 4 summers on staff at been sold? Yes. It hurts, but my current council is humming along well. KBO
  6. I think the OP was talking about the national board. If I recall there were Catholic, LDS, and Methodist members of the national board. It is my understanding that the CORs were automatically members of the district committee, not the council board. I think the OP was talking about the national board.

  7. I guess it depends on their troop activity and position of responsibility. 2.5 / week pace for 22 months plus their rank work. It would depend on MBC availability and engagement.
  8. It would be per the guide to uniform and insignia, but I agree with @qwazse, if they want to, it doesn’t seem too bad of an infraction.
  9. So, if things are going well for you, and your lodge, why do you feel like it is failing? Is your lodge failing? I can’t square the circle of your comments with your experience.
  10. I agree with you. I think it would be neigh impossible to do in 3. My daughter, who is very bright and hard working, agrees as well. For girls who got Eagle and 50+ MBs in covid in 22 months, hummmmmmmm…..
  11. What I was saying is that it may be the larger view, but things are working for us. All (most?) Scouting is local. The membership decline has been steady since Dale. This isn’t new. How is YOUR troop or YOUR pack?
  12. The more it goes away from this, the more it does “outdoor themed school work” the few youth that will join and stay. Do the outdoors. Don’t write a report on the outdoors.
  13. I put a lot of thinking into my ticket before WB. Some said don’t, I said why not. I was open to change and actually had 7 ideas. Based on more thought and the course, I winnowed it down to 5. I choose 5 things I wanted to have or do, but hadn’t had the time to do them due to priorities. They then became my priorities. Most I wanted, but would have never done. So, a detailed orienteering map and course at a council camp - I would have never made it had it not been required. Who required it? Me. I felt great doing them as each was a “it would be great if we had X”. So, I did X5.
