  1. http://www.ammoland.com/2012/06/26/is-obama-creating-a-pro-gay-boy-scouts-of-america/#axzz1yvkPR7h2 Interesting vocal article from Mr. Norris.
  2. Did anyone notice on the scoutstuff.org site that the Blazers (and matching pants/skirts) are back? Im sure the professionals are rejoicing
  3. I would take your son and run from this troop. The compass is definitely not pointing North in this troop and it sounds like its more than just the Scoutmaster. Have your son invite his friends to come with him.
  4. Our pack does the local community parade each year. We have a banner which the Webelos holding the banner. The kids love it. Some other cities do this as well they tend to put the Scouts at the front of the parade. Our parade tends to put us fairly far back in the parade.
  5. I've seen both ends of this from the District/council end and the unit end. Why is it the district councils responsibility to spoon feed information to people. I think Unit leaders need to be a bit more plugged in and seek out information (ex through forums like these) Rather than depending on a beauracracy that is often 10 years behind the curve on technology. I think alot of unit leaders just tend to stick their heads in the sand, do not Participate in discourse Untill it directly impacts them then complain about the change before It's fully understood what it's about.
  6. Don't get used to them. I hear they are going away.
  7. Advancement is like a suntan - something you get naturally whilst having fun in the outdoors." - Lord Baden-Powell
  8. We have co-oped the Spruce green shirts for our Campmaster program and I'll definitely be eyeballing this shirt as an alternative especially with summer just around the corner.
  9. Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!! *runs off to his local scout shop to stock up*
  10. Bylaws are unesessary. Just follow the policies and guidelines of the BSA.
  11. I am sort of scratching my head on this one, but with the celebration of the 100th year of Scouting in America and all the print on the various key players in the early founding of Scouting including Boyce. Why is Frederick Burnham hardly ever mentioned? Hardly anyone seems to know about him but he had a fair hand in what Scouting became. Fascinating individual from what I've read. For those who have no clue who I'm talking about you can read about him at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Russell_Burnham
  12. Well after tonights pack meeting it was Discovered that our packs Flagpoles are pretty much shot. IE the brass joiner of the two sections are stripped and pretty much useless. I was just wondering if people out there knew of a better solution than perhaps the poles that BSA supply have? From what I have heard the stripping and seperation of the hardware is a common problem. We are a fairly mobile pack so we are constantly taking our poles apart and stowing them. Thank you
  13. Slightly on topic but curious for my own edification. Can an Atheist who recognizes a duty to God be a Scout/Scouter?
  14. Umm Who actually maintains the server, and uhh is scouter.com going to go poof one day?
  15. Mark ""Again, I do not want to rush it as I want it to be for the benefit of the scouts, not me."" If you learn and become a better leader for it, then the scouts benefit because of it. The program has pretty much all levels of scouting and there is something that can be learned and garnered on all levels, whether your a den leader, District leader, Professional whatever. The concepts translate across the board.
