Funny thing about OA and Boy Scouts these days.....All the Parents who are Registered as a Boy Scout Leader...
Growin Up Most Parents were not involved in Scouting at all..
Yes Many Lodges are not active as much..just as Councils are not the same.
The Council and the OA Lodge here are nothing Compared to what they were in the Late 1970's and the early 1980's...
The Council has No First Aid Meets, No Scout-o-rammas, Sold off Best Camp, Has spent very little on the only Camp, thinks of it as a "first year only Camp"..
The Lodge does not have fellowships, No Campouts, Mainly Sash and Dash.. Ordeals no longer have Spades and Dominoes Championships..The Ordeals are 1 Nighters..We use to Have Vigil Friday and Crackerbarrel, Brotherhood Saturday and Canidate Ordeal, and wrap it up with New Ordeal on Sunday..
Around here it is Woodbadgers that is pushed now days..Can't do nothing if your Not Woodbadge.
