Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
First, thanks for the prompt response; really appreciate it.
Why does he need to finish MBs in old unit? just take the work to new unit
=> He has started MBs with a group of scouts from the old unit with counselors assigned already. The MBs are being signed off in Scoutbook, so the counselors, who are connected to him via Scoutbook, will still need to be able to “see” him in the old unit. That’s the reason I think he needs to stay in the old unit for a little while more (probably till end of the year).
fees depend on council and unit - with transfer the national fee would be covered and already paid - but some councils and units have their own fees
=>Thanks, it looks like the new unit does not have any additional fees.
The logs are more the Scouts than the units
=> Got it, thanks.
Yes you would not recharter
=> Understood, thanks!
We will probably “multiple” him for these few months till end of year when it’s time to re-charter, then we’ll just re-charter him only with the new unit.
Both SMs from the old & new units are very supportive; as a parent, I just don’t want to create any “logistics” overhead with the already very busy and dedicated SMs.
