Many of us involved with BSA get "Scouting." I believe it goes to
all registered adult leaders.
Why do you ask? Are you part of the editorial staff or are you
thinking about advertising there?
Mainly, I ignore the ads.
I would like to see Scouting changed so as to be more of
a forum for policy discussion rather than just a way for
National to tell us what they have decided.
As an example, there has been considerable discussion here
about uniform desing. How about an artilce in Scouting saying
that a re-deisgn was being considered, here are the reasons and goals,
and here are some proposed designs. Then next issue, there could be
readers' comments and suggestions.
There is one column where scouters send in problems they have
encountered within their unit and then other leaders respond
with suggestions. This is very valuable, but could be extended
to other areas as well.
I would also like to see Scouting made available in electronic
form over the InterNet, preferably as Web pages with areas for
scouters to comment.
