I've worked through the UK-Scout Association poll. Pretty good idea.
When was the last time BSA ever really polled its general membership on any
subject? I think the answer is never. The boss speaks and we are expected to
all cheer and run up the hill.
How many of us like arbitrary changes in advancement requirements? Probably
nobody. Have you ever tried to get to the decision makers with a letter or
phone call? The filtering process is such that the professional staffer
supporting the national advancement committee won't even provide
committeemember names, let alone contact information except through himself.
Yours in Scouting,
Alexandria Lone Scouts, BSA
