I agree on this point totally. The two year Webelos has seriously hurt
my troop. We haven't gotten any new scouts from the pack in about three years
now. All of the Cubs drop out in the year between First and Second Webelos. I
don't know if this is just the pack, but we had been getting a good number of
boys until the program was changed.
