An interesting note.

I have spoken with 2 different districts about round up in the last 24 hours. The Year over Year (unit to unit) numbers of new Cubs is up significantly.

Not really surprising, since this is the first Roundup to include girls. What is mildly surprising is that if you take the girls out of the registration, the numbers of boy Cubs is also up significantly. Now, it is still early in Roundup and things could change, but it is encouraging.

EDIT: We also have several ScoutsBSA female troops organizing, a couple with 20+ youth "signed-up" and 6+ NEW adults, along with 3-4 Adults with BSA experience.

I often wonder if the phrase. "There is no such thing as bad publicity" was demonstrated here. All the press, even the bad press BSA received over the change, might have brought in a lot more awareness. I hope they do a really good new applicant survey - especially for the boy cubs. Would be insightful to see why their parents decided to join.
