I took seven great, long postings explaining the organization of the
BSA from the National level, through the Region and Area, and to a
mystical local Council called the Cardinal Council (when we did the
old Cornerstone courses, we used that outline and specially made
Cardinal Council strips, two of which I still have here) and to its
units. I used that same mystical local Council to illustrate several
points about the disconnect between the national organization and the
I'll be gone to Chattanooga this weekend (anyone have a spare bedroom
for a Army man?), but I'll look for it on Sunday night and if I can
find it, I'll repost it here if you like or upload it to our
archives....on second thought, I'd better upload it to the archives (I'll
send you a copy too, Bill!) since we've been pushing it to the 50
messages a day limit for the daily digests!
The postings stem from an initial posting from a Scouter in Germany,
asking how the BSA was organized and how come we cannot just "do what
we wanted to do" instead of having so many "rules and regulations".
