  1. Yeah, NYS tends to have very stringent guidelines and regulations for summer camps. Have they said anything about vaccines and/or testing for campers?
  2. I want need to thank you. By speaking up here, you have put a (virtual) face on the issue. By sharing some of the stories of your abuse, you have made it feel real in ways that "numbers" can't. By opening up about the struggles you have faced as a result of the abuse, you have exposed raw truths which many of us have probably never even considered. I am terribly sorry it happened to you. But I am grateful you are here. now. at the virtual campfire. with other scouters. I have learned a lot from you. I especially want to say these things to @ThenNow. You have given me a lot to t
  3. Welcome, welcome, welcome! There is an old saying (predates girls in ScoutsBSA program): The boy chooses the Troop. I'm very sorry to hear your DE wasn't able to help. My first impulse is to agree with qwazse - use the Pack funds for the benefit of the Pack (B&G, summer camp) and then be on your way. If the cubs are still part of the Pack, then using the $$ to help those children progress in the Scouting program is appropriate. The CO is within their right to dismiss leaders and appoint new ones; however, until the paperwork is filed with the Council, I don't think
  4. I've been following this thread since the beginning (last Feb.). I don't have a background in law, nor have I ever been party to a bankruptcy proceeding, so I would greatly appreciate it if someone more knowledgeable than I could explain the judge's role. Isn't it her job to rule on motions and say "Yea, HA bases are both sacred and restricted" or "Nay. The HA bases are not restricted." It seems like she isn't doing much, but isn't she the one person with the authority to tell the BSA to get a move on and make some determination in who gets a seat at the mediation table? I could be
  5. I'm confused. It looks like the first statement indicates that class 100 council are the smallest, but the next statements seem to indicate that class 100 councils are the biggest. Please help unconfuse me. Thank you. Also, do you know the specific criteria, e.g. number of scouts, they use for making class designations?
  6. Thank you! I'll fill up my scouting mug as soon as I unclip it from my belt loop.
  7. Hello! Greetings from The Northeast Region (well, for as long as we continue to have regions...) I've been lurking - and thinking about posting - for close to a decade. (I feel like I've gotten to know some you of as well as Scouters I would talk to at Roundtables.) I've gotten great information and perspectives from people here. I'm not great at putting myself in front and saying, "Hey everyone! Look at me!" - unless I'm in uniform and they need someone to lead a song or skit! I have kids in the program, including boys who chose different troops. I've served as Den Leader, com
  8. Of all the things for me to comment on in my first post, and it isn't about bankruptcy... By gen z parents, do you mean the parents of gen z kids, or gen-z adults who have kids? Speaking as a member of Gen X, I don't quite agree with the ages you listed. As I understand it, Gen X is generally considered to be people born 1965-1980, and Gen Y (aka millennials) is people born 1980 through some time in the 1990s. That said (and speaking broadly), millennial parents tend to have different goals and priorities than previous generations.
