  1. Yes, the only thing I think would bring it to a full stop is a Cease and Desist Letter from council...then you are officially no longer under the auspices. I totally agree with you: never let the adult side of things hold a Scout back from advancement...
  2. Nope, no signed Annual Charter Agreement. I'll run one around for signatures, just so our CO is covered. This is the document that binds the BSA to cover the CO with insurance. So, do your registrars issue you a unit charter without having this form completed? http://www.scouting.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Annual-Charter-Agreement-Charter-Organizations-.pdf Ours has for the past five years... Hmmmm
  3. You are most welcome! Want deeper knowledge? Read section starting on page 24... https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33088.pdf
  4. Ibuprofen is your friend. https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2012/03/ibuprofen-decreases-likelihood-of-altitude-sickness-researchers-find.html
  5. You are right on the money...and sometimes I think that is why we need the "creative destruction" of a Chapter 7.
  6. Absolutely you can double count. Unless the requirements specifically say otherwise. Also, since the project was conservation related, he could use it to fulfill requirements for the Distinguished Conservation Service Award. https://www.scouting.org/outdoor-programs/conservation-and-environment/conservation-awards-and-recognitions/bsa-distinguished-conservation-service-award/
  7. Sounds wonderful! No bugs, fewer other campers, and a good chilly night to sleep 😜 Hope your other outing goes well...
  8. Ours just went through yesterday. We have a charter until 31 Dec 2022! Now, I'll ask if our charter agreement has actually been signed for the year? (Since our unit has unilaterally handled the last four years doing this [coordinating all signatures on the document and delivering it to council], my sense is we will have to do it again this year...)
  9. Our registrar is struggling with the "new" system. It was all supposed to be done electronically. But, in PA, the registrar must verify PA volunteer clearances are up to date for the entire adult roster before approving the recharter. However, the registrar cannot see the "future" roster until she approves it. Catch-22, so they had to go back to all the units and ask for a roster for rechartering, outside the electronic system.
  10. And please, for the love of all that is Scouting, make him pack his own gear! You can go through the Scout Handbook checklist with him to guide him, but please make him pack it. And starting today, after school & homework, have him gather at least about a third of his stuff ... if he waits until the last minute (Friday after school) , there will be problems for both of you. Windy and chilly in your area this weekend. Lows in the high 20's. Hats, gloves, and layers are a must. Don't know if you two are used to those temps. Is his sleeping bag good for that? And a final tric
  11. Still there... https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/Merit_Badge_ReqandRes/Inventing.pdf?_gl=1*117uccl*_ga*MTI0MDc0MzQ4LjE2MzQ3Mjk1NDM.*_ga_20G0JHESG4*MTY0MTk2MjM4Ni4zOC4wLjE2NDE5NjIzODYuNjA.&_ga=2.102987464.995562393.1641576145-124074348.1634729543
  12. They could call it Cubela's!! https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en#
  13. Hey, if the Army wanted you to have a Scout unit, they'd have issued you one!! 😛 Keep up the good work. We all need you.
