This sounds like the perfect reason to kill the new Scout patrol idea.
Now instead of having troops composed of patrols we are now having the
troops divided into patrols based upon age. It's done in my troop and I
dislike it. This usually results in all the natural, or obvious, leaders
being grouped into one patrol.
