  1. Scoutbook, the Scout Handbook, Merit Badge pamphlets are all digital now. It’s 2021, phones are a tool and reference.
  2. I created a religious emblem display as one of my ticket items.
  3. Why? Was it a condition of the donation? If not, goodbye Schott. Lots of people donate to Scouts without having stuff named after them.
  4. You could always volunteer to become a commissioner or a member of the district committee.
  5. Rome certainly has control over the assignment of bishops.
  6. I disagree. The unit Scouts can still not vote for a candidate thereby showing they were undeserving. I have seen it happen. Under the old system you might have all completely deserving Scouts but only 50% could be elected. If the purpose of the Order is explained well and no pressure exerted on the Scouts I find they vote for who deserves it and don’t vote for those who don’t.
  7. I have not seen the new syllabus myself but received that info from next years course director.
  8. Working copies were distributed at recent course director conferences but it is not 100% yet. Probably 90% done.
  9. BP’s system had a Troop Leader=SPL though it was optional and only seen necessary for a Troop with many patrols.
  10. The last official BSA recommended sequence from 1979: Honor Medal Silver Buffalo Silver Antelope Silver Beaver District Award of Merit Order of the Arrow Distinguished Service Award Medal of Merit Eagle Quartermaster Silver Youth Religious Emblem Adult Religious Emblem Other Scout Scouter's Key Scouter Training Award Den Leader Training Award Den Leader Coach Training Award https://www.sageventure.com/history/knothist/
  11. And the advantage of Liberty is not having to put up with songs, skits, announcements and waiting to be dismissed.
  12. It shouldn’t be worn. The insignia for completing Scoutmaster Specific training is the “trained” patch.
  13. There is no requirement that the Scout type it. As long as he wrote legibly in the workbook it is acceptable.
