You asked about problems with some Scouts not being in attendance during the
OA campout weekend. This was resolved by first hosting the overnight in a
local place and encouraging all members to come at least for the OA election
If kids know that something special is going on, they, like us, will change
plans to be there. Of course, you and I will *always* have that ONE or TWO
Scouts that seems "not to get the word" about the event (its been planned
by the PLC for six months...where we you???), you get a higher percentage
of voting members in attendance by moving the site and making it fun then
by hosting it as "another part of the Troop's program for tonight".
Hope that helped!!
