(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – A local father-son team working to change the Boy Scouts of America’s policy prohibiting openly gay troop leaders arrived at the organization’s headquarters in Irving, Texas this week.  Dave and Joe McGrath rode 1,800 miles on bikes to protest the policy, braving bruising hailstorms on Tuesday to arrive in time for the BSA convention Wednesday. BSA leaders are expected to vote on the ban today.
