Thanks for your update on Tiger Cubs. It was nice of you to contact
You have to admit that Jim's statistics show he is doing something
Can you educate us up North a bit.
What's the current total population of the area covered by BSA.
(My last info was about 250,000,000.)
What is the age range for Tiger Cubs ?
What is the total population of Tiger Cubs that showed the
160,000 loss from 1992-August-31 to 1993-August-31 ?
Approximately how many new Tiger Cubs join each year ?
Is there a breakdown of Tiger Cub population by age ?
I need a reference base to your 160,000 number to appreciate the
magnitude of the problem you are concerned with.
My number one objective is the same as yours - the best interests
of our youth members. I guess we disagree on the approach -
"bottom up" or "top down" management in a volunteer organization.
In my opinion, policies from above can never cater to individual
situations and environments. They serve as good reference points
for the program, but require common sense in local interprtation.
I'm always nervous when "chapter and verse" is quoted from a
document. Around our way, individual groups are as successful
as the individual commitment and approach of the adult volunteers,
not by strict interpretation of regulations.
