Ches, Our camporee was scored strictly by patrol with each patrol winning
a ribbon based on their own patrol's point score in one of three point
ranges. There was no overall winner.
I am not saying that there should not be troop competition, but would
suggest that the winning troop be the troop able to field the single best
scoring patrol. That way a troop with one patrol has the same chance as a
troop with 11 patrols. You might want to consider whether the patrols
fielded should be the same as the patrols existing in the regular troop
setting or if the larger troops should be permitted to pool their best.
It would might just fire up some of the younger scouts to try to outdo
their older counterparts. I still think I would want to add some system of
recognition for the best efforts of all the patrols and not just numero uno.
