  1. How hard would it be for the Council to just keep a ledger. Money comes in from a camporee it goes into the council account and a credit entry is made in the district ledger. Expenses for the event are paid from the council account anNd a debit is entered in the district ledger. Camporee makes money there is a credit balance in the ledger to start the next event. It would require council to keep their hands off the actual money though.
  2. It's been a few years since I had to deal with JTE, so maybe these complaints about the process are no longer valid. But, that won't stop me from writing them anyway :). 1. Even in the pre-scoutbook era, the BSA had almost all the information they needed to calculate JTE from recharter info, Tour Permits (remember those?), the service hour website (what was that called, service to america or something), etc. JTE should have been a 0 second effort for any unit serving vol other than entering data during the year. Turn in your recharter in December, wait three months for the BSA to rek
  3. Stop recruiting boys in order to protect your bonus? 🤣
  4. Nothing wrong with the idea of tort reform. But let's be clear, the lawyers in these cases are operating inside the system created by politicians.
  5. It's been said before, but, worth saying again. The current cultural zeitgeist requires full compliance and submission. Organizations like the BSA, the NRA, or the Church that refuse to fully comply either have to be destroyed or taken over. Multiple corporations, the NFL, MLB, NBA, GSUSA, etc. have already bent the knee, literally in some cases and figuratively, in an attempt to save themselves from the postmodern leftists. They may or may not be spared the wrath of the mob. The BSA has come to believe the path to survival is to also bend the knee. It is likely too late for the BSA.
  6. I did it with my son at PTC 10 or 12 years back. I seem to recall knife throwing at 2013 Jambo.
  7. Just poking around a bit. https://www.mississippi-umc.org/newsdetail/united-methodist-churches-and-boy-scouts-of-america-14335626 https://www.gnjumc.org/the-boy-scouts-of-america/ https://www.gnjumc.org/the-boy-scouts-of-america/statement-on-boy-scout-bankruptcy-from-gnj-chancellor/
  8. Yep., I get that and have no issue with the strategy. I'm just suggesting there is more than one way to skin a cat, and none of them involve turning assets over to a council.
  9. Offer your equipment for sale to the families and CO membership. Spend that cash and every cent in the treasury on the biggest blow out fully catered no holds barred CoH. If there's any equipment or cash left tell council to come and take it. They arent going to lawyer up over it. Hell they wont even force a DE to visit the CO.
  10. I suspect there were well trained RSOs at Ft. Leavenworth.
