Our troop does it "strictly by the book" in that the SPL appoints his ASPL
and they appoint & train everyone else they feel they can count on to get the
job done as spelled out in the Junior Leaders manual. The patrols elect their
patrol leader after the troop has elected the SPL (so that a patrol doesn't
elect a patrol leader who then gets instantly removed to be SPL). I feel
this makes sense because the SPL needs these appointive offices to be held
as much as possible by folks that he can count on to do the job.
