Scout troops that are clued in SHOULD be treating Webelos like gold, but
the ideal case is not always happening.
I have one more comment for you to consider bringing with you to your council:
My council has instituted a two year webelos program.
Effect: The influx of new scouts into the troops slowed to a tiny
trickle for a year!
I've not paid close attention to this aspect of the Scouts, and I am not
tuned in to all the facts, but it seemed like a policy that our council
just blindly adopted without any phase-in.
I'm mentioning this because we just noticed that it is a pretty serious
problem. If you have the ear of Council on Cub/Scout issues, you might
want to look into this one.
