Sorry, I meant to 'suspend' and 'resume' my first posting, I wasn't
I'm not familiar with either old or new rules, since my sons are
only in Cubs right now, and I assisted with Cubs many years ago.
I think one brother made it to First Class, but I was not involved
it that effort. :-)
Concerning sports: I don't see the issue as 'either Scouts or sports'.
Scouts are concerned with health and sportsmanship, but we/they can
participate on community, non-scout activities. For instance, my
sons love soccer and swimming, but our pack does not sponsor these
activities. The boys play with their school teams and earn the Cub
pins, belt loops, and letters at the same time. Perhaps it's more
difficult for older scouts to juggle time needed, but I don't think
we should 'compete' with sports.
