All of which creates a great deal of confusion for people trying to find up-to-date information.  I can understand that the BSA does not want to do paper printings of documents "ahead of schedule" due to the cost, but there is no reason why there cannot be a specific online repository of all BSA documents (including those that currently cost money - yeah, sure) that is updated whenever a major change needs to be made - and I think the elimination of the tour permit/plan falls into that category.

 

Amen.

 

It is an easy thing to fix and the impact on volunteers would be immediately felt. I will say they seem to going in the right direction with new sites like Program Resources and Troop Leader. I'd prefer an online library model where finding the docs were a bit easier (search feature, indexed, cross-referenced, etc.).

First time I've heard of these websites. I would add they need a better job of advertising them.

I dunno if only the web had the ability to have central places, call them hubs or portals, where you could start and then easily navigate to the desired information and as a backup the whole site accessible to and  indexed by common search engines...

 

We seem lost, but let's look at a map.

Maps are only good if:

- They are accurate
- They show all hazards
- The user knows how to use them
- You have all the gear you need to get from Point A to Point B safely and timely.
