Dave asked a lot of questions...*hehehehee*
>Does anyone know what the other valid codes are?
Those are all of the UNIT codes...of course, there's 86,88, 96 and 98, for
and Council Committeemembers, and 82 for the District Chair(man), and
I believe 84 and 94 are for the District and Council Commissioners,
But those don't go on the UNIT chartering documents.
>Which charter would they show up on, unit, council or ??? For that matter,
where >would 42, 88 and 96 registrations be listed? I know that districts are
>subdivisions of the council, so would district level leaders be listed
>on the council charter or is there a separate listing for each district?
Each District (and in larger Councils, sub-districts) have their own
This has the position codes of all of the volunteers (and the
are registered as a volunteer in another District) and their positions that
During rechartering time, the District's leadership confirms their portion
charter and updates it with additions and deletions.
>Another question, my DE tells me that they are phasing out the varsity

>official on this?
Yes...Dave, its been official since last winter. ALL VARSITY positions IN A
UNIT are now VENTURE positions....note please, that I stated *in a unit*,
STILL HAVE VARSITY UNITS and their position codes are still valid. So, if your
unit(s) have been dragging their feet with the switchover from "varsity" to
crews, this being the start of a new program year would provide a great
do this name change.
Varsity TEAMS are not affected by the change and they can continue to move
>Last, a trivia question: When a Scout turns 18, what ADULT registration
>positions are available to him?
>From my posting back in the fall of 1994:
"Upon turning the "rarin' to go" age of 18, there's not many adult positions
a former Scout can hold. He may go to an Explorer Post or Ship and remain a
youth member until 21, since in 1991 ALL ADULT EXPLORING POSITIONS
ARE TO BE HELD BY ADULTS 21 years or older.
At the age of 18, a person may serve as Assistant Scoutmaster, Assistant
Assistant Den Leader or Assistant Coach. In some Councils, he may serve as a
merit badge counsellor at age 18 as well [NOTE: No he cannot, according to many
here on the list that say that merit badge counsellors MUST be 21 or older].
are PRESENTLY the only positions available to this young man until he turns 21.
A *big difference* from our days, in which we welcomed 18 year-olds into our
Districts and Councils with open arms and a list of tasks to be done, as
encouraging them to serve as Associate Advisors for Exploring units. "
Hope the information helps out.
