    I think Boys Life is a great magazine. My son is a Scout and he enjoys receving his. But as a Registrar, the syetem support avialable to us in the field is poor. There is little info re: Boys Life on Scoutnet. When a Webelos crosses over or a Scout with Boys Life Transfers, you can’t “Tranfer” his subscription – so the unit has to “remember” to make him a YES at the next recharter time so issues aren’t missed. When you post, names & units don’t appear on the Post Confirmation. I’ve had several e-mail exchanges with Rhonda Williams (who is wonderful!) in the Boys Life area and there is no way to overcome these system shortcomings. Please get us our new system SOON and make Boys Life info more accessible to us in the field. Would be nice is a Scout could also be tagged somehow as being part of a household that is receiving if he doesn’t have a subscription in his own name. We’re the front line of support out here and Nationals isn’t giving us the right tools to do the job properly.
