As this mess could get everyone (you, troop, charter org. and BSA) in a
much bigger, deeper mess, _PLEASE_ involve your District Executive right
now. That is one of the reasons he/she is there. I'm sure you are not
the first to face something along this line. (not the last either!) If
you are not comfortable with the DE's response, go right to the Council
Exec. They should be able to help you through what could become a legel
minefield. DO NOT try to handle this without involving the piad
professional Scouters. And document everything, who you have talked to
regarding the situation, when etc. (CYA!!)
