Fellow Sea Scouters:
There has been quite a bit of discussion about switching specialty codes
to '1208' over the past few weeks. August 1st has come and gone and
hopefully everyone made the switch to '1208.' If your Ship hasn't, and
your specialty codes fall within Venturing (and 1200 and 1600 series do,
but the 900, 1300, and 1700 do not), it is not too late to switch to
'1208.' Contact your council service center and ask to speak with your
council registrar, who can take care of the making the change online.
According to my database, fewer than half of the Sea Scouting units in
the United States are coded 1208. I am fairly certain that many Ships
converted to '1208' over the last few weeks. I have only heard from the
Ships in one council in Colorado that they made the switch. This is
important since we maintain a database to keep in touch with everyone.
If your Ship has switched to '1208' over the last few weeks, would you
please send me a message OFFLIST giving me the particulars. What I need is
your council name or number and your Ship number. Any other information
would also be helpful.
Thank you for your help.
