I need a reference, if it exists, to help resolve a developing conflict.
Here's the situation:
We have a scout (Life, nearly 17 years old) considering an Eagle project to
benefit his church, involving repair of a garage used to store power
equipment, tools, paint, etc. However, this church is also the chartering
organization for his troop, and the advancement chair for the council has
said that BSA regulations prohibit an Eagle project from benefiting the CO.
The district executive has apparently (sorry, but I am abviously getting a
lot of this second-hand) said he knows of no such regulation. We have
searched through the BSA website, but so far have found no reference to
Eagle projects and chartering organizations one way or the other.
Can anyone help me out here with a lead to regulations, BSA guidelines, etc.
which will help resolve this - one way or the other?
Troop 6 and Pack 6
