Chance Michaels replied to Paul Matisz's discussion Campaign Hats question
"The Rothco hats are good, although they tend to lose their shape over time.  That's not necessarily a bad thing - a lot of us like the more informal style they take on. I was given a Stratton campaign hat for Christmas - it's more…"

Chance Michaels replied to Susan Aldridge-LaVigne's discussion Badge questions
"The Timberwolves and Otters don't wear the BPSA strip.  That's for Pathfinders and Rovers. There's a good breakdown of the sections here.I would say that the shared badges are WFIS badges (which each section wears on the right…"

"Thank you, Jeffrey.  That addresses my concerns with comment moderation.  I missed the other thread, and now understand the context more fully."

Chance Michaels replied to Jeffrey Kaye's discussion BPSA-US Logo Items on Amazon
"Just to clarify - I fully accept that there will be times where moderators need to edit or delete posts. I just don't think it helps our group if that's done arbitrarily, and a housekeeping thread can assure us all that it isnt."

Chance Michaels replied to Jeffrey Kaye's discussion BPSA-US Logo Items on Amazon
"Private organizations are free to do as they please. That's not censorship. That being said, I am concerned about the allegations of editing and removing posts without notice. Transparency is essential within an organization. I suggest there…"

Chance Michaels replied to Bryan Redeagle's discussion Fonts and Typefaces
"I think the original question was how we get it.  I understood that as we no longer had access to the font.  If you do, and it can be shared (both logistically and under the license), then we don't have an issue."

Joseph C. Braxton commented on Chance Michaels's blog post First camp of the 2016/17 season!
"Sounds like you're on the right track. One suggestion might be to take the Pathfinders out on a "recon hike/camp" , getting photos and other ideas for the rest of the group for their next outing. That way, the Pathfinders get to do…"

Profile Information

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
New York City native, raised mainly in Wisconsin, now living in Brooklyn. Father of three - two Timberwolves and an Otter! We've been with 5th Brooklyn almost since its founding, and it's been a real pleasure to watch my kids grow from Otters and Chipmunks into real Scouts, loving the outdoors and confident in their skills.
What BPSA Scout Group do you belong to (if any)?
I am proud to be Ahmeek for the 5th Brooklyn Scouts.
Any previous Scouting background?
When I was young, I was in Cub Scouts and Webelos. I dropped out before Boy Scouts because I didn't think my local troop was particularly welcoming to those who didn't walk the same religious path.
