One fellow's story: it works!
I became SM in February 1991 . . . past SM volunteered to shepherd eight
life scouts, only one of whom had started a project (five were six or fewer
months old, the other three were as much as two years old).
Since early August we have had five Eagle BOR and a sixth is scheduled for
early October. Only one of the long-term life Scouts has not produced, the
eighth Scout plays football!
Having someone to peruse the early versions of write-ups and proposals has
been a significant help . . . of the six new/nearly Eagles, five would have
happened anyway but the time line would have been much longer . . . my
resources would have been stretched much too thin . . . the sixth individual
might have produced but it is hard to tell . . .
My summary . . . one Eagle candidate at a time is managable, two gets
difficult, more than this means call for help!
