  1. I was just thinking about how the Scout Book app is a ways from keeping up with patrol-method requirements tracking. (E.g. PL's can't sign-off on requirements. Although they claim they may add the feature at some point.) Consider the following low-brow high-tech procedure: Each scout (or his parent) creates an account on the cloud (e.g. Google Drive) ... maybe with a folder labeled 'Rank Advancement '. The scout gives 'read' rights to the folder to his SM, advancement chair, and parents. After some requirements get signed off in his hand book, scout saves a photo of that page to his drive. The photo might be named 'Second Class', same as any previous photos for the same rank. That way, as he posts updates, the old ones are archived. He could also save photos of his participation diary, miles hiked, etc ... He could have a photo of his completed blue cards as well. In advance of his conference, the SM could bring up the scouts photo for that rank. He could then cross-check the book, if necessary. End of conference, he snaps a picture of the page and shares it with the advancement chair. BoR transpires. Advancement is filed by the current means. If the PL wants to plan activities, he can go through boys' pages and see if a few need something in common. Or he can look through everyone's picture of MBs and see if someone did something cool. If not, he could just ask at a meeting, but where's the fun in that? If the BSHB is lost, the leaders can rebuild from the scouts' most recent photos. Advancement track: done. Personal responsibility: taught. Teamwork: shared. Money otherwise spent on software: dutch oven pizza party!
