  1. Well, the potential CO, who I said was a little cagey, tabled discussion of starting a pack until the spring. Enough parents and their boys had asked for it. There are no other units of any kind in the vicinity. I think we could grow rapidly. But the CO is a bit of a "crater church" -- families who join while students migrate to 'burbs.. So maybe another night of commuting was not gonna be worth it just to keep this cadre of boys together. The potential of engaging international families was there, but some internationals might be looking for a coed program as is available in their own country. The church staff was overwhelmed with the notion of one more program. The vote was split along the lines of folks whose sons (and one daughter) had been in BSA. But the tipping point seems like the membership policy ... this church being a group who just left a mainline denominations because of abandoning decorum to accommodate the perennial activism of those with permissive sexual ethics. The "we stand behind our sponsors right to select their volunteers" mantra just did not wash with them. Missed opportunity? I'm honestly not sure. I'd rather have an intentional CO (I think) than one who just says "sure, just turn the lights out when you leave."
