You echo my concerns when I caught wind of this idea. This idea of mandatory
contributions (after all - that is what it is) scares me too. Our Troop does our
fair share; we try our best to exceed last years numbers. But, up until now, this
has been a voluntary effort.
As to your last sentences - many people already associate Boy Scouts with Popcorn
(just as they do Girl Scouts and cookies). We cannot change history can we?
I will certainly keep you message handy, because I think you voiced the overall
root of the problem - we are loosing sight of the real reason we are all here. I
am all for fairness (every group helping to pull the load), but I am anxiously
awaiting someone from this list to send me the BSA Guidelines regarding a matter
such as this - because I suspect this cannot be legitimately done.
