Roger, I would love to open up the Boy Scout level program to girls,
'cause its an easier program to work with. But the girl Scout gold
award is not easier than Eagle to earn .... its much harder. The Eagle
badge is somewhat harder than the Silver Award to earn, in my opinion,
but I've never kno3wn a Gold Award girl Scout not to earn Silver along
Tim O'Leary, Troop 772, Post 769, and a former GSUSA adult.
