I almost replied via private mail, but we all run into resitance to
change when we try to improve things. Our last SPL got furstrated and
quit when he couldn't make things change instantly.
Process improvement is messy;
it takes patience;
it takes creativity and perserverence.
And, guess what, there is no one right way!

The courses I've taken on introducing change mention you have to
balance work and family. I've met people who put a lot of effort into
Scouts at the expence of their family. You mentioned that working with
the Scout troop was a better choice for your family. Then, that's the
path you should take. If you can't get anyone to take over the pack
after 4 years, 5 or 10 years won't bring you much more luck. I spent
a large part of my last year in Cubs getting people to take over the
pack. It isn't easy. Cubmaster seamed to be frightening to them.
