My experience is that the CO/COR will not go against the wishes of the Troop Committee. Just like most Troop Committees wont go against the SM. The troop committee should have had their chair give the dismissal.

BOY Scouting is about THE BOY. And his ability to grow into an up-standing, contributing, member of society.
Don't sacrifice your children's scouting experiences because adults can't work and at nice with each other

It sounds to me like there are way too many egos involved in this troop.

As a commissioner, wise old owl, etc. I have offered the above advise many times.
A couple of rules:
Do not pilfer, bad mouth, or cause harm.
Go out and make the unit that you so strongly believe in.
Find like minded youth and adults.
Recruit at school, office, and church.
Bring more into the BSA fold and you will truely be a hero.
Whining about past injustice and treatment is not allowed.
You are the example now for change.
Go get trained and have all leaders (youth and adults trained)

1. The Scoutmaster can't do that.
2. Find a new troop.
There is more to the letter that y'all won't believe either but that is for a later discussion.
I'm here to tell that yes I did receive a letter from the Scoutmaster and signed by the scoutmaster stating that I was no longer allowed to participate in Troop meetings, fund raisers, or any outdoor activities.
I have asked my kids if they want to go to a new troop and they said no. I have planted the seed of dual enrollment in their mind. I have been pointing out the benefits of dual enrollment.
I have rising up inside me. I will play by their rules with a smile on my face. This is all I am saying for now.

Please elaborate on how I have called names . Maybe I have pointed fingers but I have also pointed fingers at myself.
I go to the weekly troop meetings. I sit inside in a chair usually at the back of the room or next to the door at the back of the room. I only speak if I am asked a question by another adult or if I have a question (even then I do not interrupt the meeting - I wait until the parents are invited to speak or until after the meeting). The reason I go and sit inside is because my children do not pay attention to what is being said. When the meeting is over, we leave unless my kids have business to conduct after the meeting such as SM Conference, BOR, applications getting signed, etc. My kids do that and I am present in the room (except for BOR) but I say nothing and do nothing. How is that overbearing (an honest question)?
