Very simply put, the 7 bucks goes to the council for reg and the other
funds... $43.00 a year in our troop... goes to rank/merit badges....
event badges.... the cost we seem to incur with camping each trip no matter
what we charge up front... towards troop equip... etc etc etc....
this is probably the same guy that pays $75.00 to play golf on sunday....
why does 50 bucks a year seem like to much to some....
