(I like Scouting names - and they don't use them here.)
I am a Canadian marooned in the USA for awhile - previously was SL of a Troop
in a British Scout Group in Den Haag, NL.
I have also worked with mixed-gender Scouting and prefer it to the BSA way of
doing things - so my point of view is similar to yours.
I would not look for a merger between the GSUSA and the BSA - however, we can
hope and work for the BSA to allow to OPTION of allowing girls to join
individual units in the coming years. Hopefully a little pressure from the
"trenches" will help along those lines...
Hope to hear from you after you holidays.
