Hello All -
Need a little quick help!
I am doing up an "icebreaker" handout for an upcoming Boy Scout adult
training event. I hope to present a little of the message that there is a
tremendous amount of strength to be found in the sheer diversity within our
Scouting movement. Among other things, I hope to point the attendees
toward discovering the wide breadth of community based organizations that
host local Scout Troops.
I remember fairly recently seeing a list of the various (top ten?)
organizations that charter BSA Scout units. I sorta recall that the top 5
or so were churches (Methodists, Catholics, LDS, etc.) and that the list
changed a little depending on if you counted units or noses. I NEED those
I just spent an interesting half-hour digging around looking for old issues
of Scouter and Boy's Life. My well-organized filing system (put stuff in
boxes when the pile starts to lean...) did not yield the correct
publication. Hmmmm... did they really quit sending out the BSA mag's in
Can anybody send me the list(s) of most-used BSA charter partners (with the
unit/nose counts, if possible)?
Come to think of it, does anybody have an list of most-used charter
partners from all the Scouting movements around the world? It would be
interesting either broken out by nation or all combined worldwide. I don't
think that I have ever seen such a list! I don't need it for the
icebreaker, but I would love to see that information sometime if anyone
knows where it is published.
Thanks for the QUICK help on the BSA charter partner list!
