Mike, I'm surprised at you. I thought you could tell! OK, here it is
in the briefest way I can think of:
I don't like the new scout patrol concept.

We already have this program! It is called second year webelos, not
first year. Let's give them better outdoor program and you'll see

a taste by camping with troops.
