Knots Presentation

With thanks to James Eager, District Advancement Chair, Thunderbird District, Gulf Ridge Council, and Mike Walton (Settummanque) we are pleased to offer Scouters a training presentation on adult awards that addresses the recent changes to what square knots will be available in the future. You can download the PowerPoint training presentation that James Eager put together at:

The presentation provides great visuals to make it very easy to understand the changes to square knots.

    Wow, way to punish Cub Scouters and discourage adult volunteerism! Great job, BSA….

    Please note that I make no judgement on which knots stayed or didn’t stay. I just reported the facts I was given so that people would be informed.

    I have a few questions about this power point. I put on a lot of different trainings in our Council and I want to make sure the info is correct.
    1) I’ve not seen anywhere that the Alumni Award was being discontinued.
    2) as I understood it the Den Leader knot was going to be used for Tiger, Den and Webelos with devise pins not the green on green Scout knot.
    3) I also thought that the Commissioner knots (Doctor and Excellent) were not being changed.
    4) finally it shows the Heroism Award being discontinued, I thought that was staying.
    Please let know, I like the power point but I don’t want to give out bad information.

      The information provided is from Mike Walton. I simplely provided a graphically interface. My presentation is subject to change by National, but not to everyone wishing every knot stays.

    Need to fact check this presentation. It has a lot of incorrect info in it.
