Sorry, I'll be absent at tonight's unit commissioner's meeting...again. My club is doing a Christmas show at the Hale Koa Hotel on Sunday and I've been to only 1 rehearsal so far, mainly due to my responsibilities with school and Scouting. Anyway, here's my report:

Have all parents signed up into a position.
They attended their first District event, Saturday's Cub-O-Ree.

Well we're well into the Online Recharter and this year is certainly more problem filled than last year. I don't think that the issues we are seeing are related to the users for the most part. It seems as if they have made changes to the system that have affected its stability. In any case, here is some info that you can pass along.
1. ScoutNet will be down from November 11th - November 13th. What this means is that if a unit has not started the Online Recharter process, they will not be able to
until the 14th. If they have already started, it will not (or at least should not) affect them.
2. ScoutNet is normally down for maintenance between 2 AM Sunday morning until 10 PM Sunday night (Hawaii time) every week.
3. A lot of people have been seeing the error message "Error processing data. Please try back later." A representative from Regional said that there were numerous
causes for this error message including: a blank Address 1 line, "Mac" as a first name, and an apostrophe ( ' ) in the Chartered Organization name. At last night's
Online Recharter workshop, we determined that you can easily get this message with no errors at all. The solution seems to be to press the "Back" button in your
web browser and try submitting again. You may have to do this several times but eventually it seems to take the data and move on. I am going to try and confirm
with National that doing this is okay. All I know at this point is that it worked.
4. Social Security Numbers are required for adults. If you don't have a number, you need to get one. Also, once you put in an SSN and finish adding the adult record,
you cannot edit it. You will have to delete the record and start over.
Turn out at last night's help session was not good. We had 3 people show up to do recharters. Two of them were able to complete the process. One person could not bring up her Troop info at all. We did figure out the trick of re-trying over and over again to get things through.
Finally, the next help session we have scheduled is at the Aloha Council Field Office on Saturday, November 12th from 9 AM to 1 PM.
Yours in Scouting,
Aloha Council Technology Committee Member
