Posted two Scenario's where BSA Supply prices seemed too HIGH.
This thread has been discussed at great length in the past so I
won't go into great detail.
I have to agree with Jon. I'll probably get flamed for this, but,
I think that BSA Supply wants people to assume that they are a
"not-for-profit" group. Greed and bureaucratic indifference is as
prevalent in Scouting as much as in the Fortune 500. K-Mart and
Sears mark thing up for resale, but they do not have a Monopoly
on the market. Nieman Marcus does though....
Flame way... I wear asbestos underwear.
