I get on Scoutbook to search for a counselor for a particular badge. I set the search parameters per zip code of the Scout, 50 miles, “Both” for busy or not working with youth.
It returns results within our council.
This Scout’s zip code borders a neighboring council.
I then changed search parameters for this badge to “Any distance”.
It returns results for the same counselors in our council and then goes BSA wide.
Q: Are results listed in increasing distance from the zip code?
If this is the case, how is it that none of the other councils in my state (NY) have no listed counselors for this badge (Art)?
Surely this cannot be that every counselor has restricted their services to such a narrow scope of youth they’ll council. Is this the other councils purposely restricting them from availability?
If so, why?
