Ditto for my pack! At best, we get a former Tiger den leader
to act as Tiger Coach for the year their den is a Wolf Den. Then these
(usually) busy parents have moved on to other challenges of Pack
leadership at all levels.
Sometimes we get an Assistant Den Leader to be Den Leader while the
former DL moves on to other challenges (Pack or District levels).
Pack 74 in Buckeye District of Central Ohio Council, has a strong
tradition (which we market well) of parental involvement. This gives us
a constant stream of talent to use and to mould into what the boys need.
We also have a super District Roundtable that provides superb training
to our leaders and parents.
Now, if only I could find a pamphleteer parent with WordPerfect.... :-)
