You are welcome. I think that is why SCOUTS-L exists! I know
this net has helped me.

And the adult leaders too? As a former Webelos Den Leader you can
go on into Boy Scouting with your Den. They become a Patrol, they
should be assigned a Troop Guide (an older scout to assist them) and
they should be assigned an Assistant Scoutmaster for New Scouts.
You and/or your assistant WDL would be perfect for the Assistant
Scoutmaster position(s). If not there, another Asst. SM is almost
always welcomed. If you prefer the committee, one person on the
Boy Scout Troop committee should be assigned as the Webelos Resource
Person and would work between Troop and next years Webelos and future
new scouts. As your DE to let you see the Boy Scout Fast Start
tapes for Troop organization and leadership positions including the
The Barbeque (working with the troop committee).
Follow your boys and help make your troop as exciting as was their
Cub/Webelos experience. Wouldn't it be a shame that the best
ceremony they ever had was their Webelos Arrow of Light Award.
Former cub scout leaders may be better at putting on Campfire and
other ceremonies because they are taught to be sillier earlier.
