To: lost in the snow

As a Scoutmaster, I sent a letter to National, our Council Executive and District Managers and told htem in no uncertain terms that our troop is fully against this change. As a volunteer, I told them that they need us far more than we need them. American Heritage Girls springs to mind as an organization that would probably readily develop a boys program. As a Scoutmaster with a great team and lots of experience, I could easily have a program just like Scouts and completely independent of Scouts.

I don’t use profanity but am having a very hard time controlling my tongue about this.

To: cyclotic
My letters have also been sent. Being in the liberal enclave of Vermont, AHG have only 2 troops. If this goes through I wonder if AHG will formally cut ties with BSA.

My wife has phoned national in Texas and and expressed our opinion. They are apparently slammed with calls. The operator she spoke to said that they are so busy they only want a yes or no to the change. With this operator the no’s are ahead 178 to 2. At least that is good news and I hope the board listens.
