Canoeing Merit Badge

BSA apparently released a new set of requirements for the Canoeing Merit Badge about a month ago.  The new requirements were posted on scouting.org, and are now also posted on usscouts.org, and meritbadge.org.  I’ve also updated and uploaded a new version of the workbook to both usscouts.org and meritbadge.org.

In general, the changes involve more renumbering than content changes.

Other than wording changes, here’s how the old and new requirements compare: 

Old requirements 1, 2, and 4 were replaced by new requirements 1a – 1c.
Old requirement 3 became requirement 2.
Old requirements 5a-5k became requirements 3a-3c, 4a-4b, 5a-5b, 6, and 7a-7c.
Old requirements 6a-6h became requirements 8a-8d and 9a-9d.
Old requirement 7a-g became requirements 10a-g, and a new requirement 10h was added.
Old requirement 8 became requirement 11.
Old requirement 9 became requirement 12, the introduction was revised, and old requirement 9e was dropped.
Old requirement 10a was replaced with requirements 13a and 13b, and 10b-10f became 13c-13g.

The details of all the changes can be seen at:

Scouts-L is back on line

As I mentioned earlier, our server was down for about a day and a half, from just after midnight Wednesday night, until just after noon today.

There were actually 2 problems – First the server needed to be restarted, and then the Domain Name Server had to be reset to point to the correct IP Address.

That was the cause of the CONFIRM messages a number of you got when you tried to send messages to the list.

Everything should be back to normal now.  Thanks for your patience.


Scouts-L Server off line

As you may have noticed, the Scouts-L list has not had any traffic today (June 26th).  The server which runs the list went off line shortly after Midnight.  We’re aware of the issue and have contacted our service provider to get the server restarted and the list resumed, but as of 11:00 pm (EST), they have not done so.  Please bear with us while we work to resolve the problem.

Paul Wolf, Secretary-USSSP and a Moderator of Scouts-L.
