Another point I make is that there are "no bad decisions"
We have 4 troops in town. ALL of the cubs tend to
visit each troop. When they drop in with us,
I usually sit with them for 10 minutes, explain the
difference between Cubs and BSA, the signiture process,
Next I tell them that they are going to make a
choice about which troop they are going to join.
I let them know that this decision is important because
they are GOING ON IN THEIR SCOUTING CAREER but that the decision
of which troop can be changed. --- No Bad Decisions---
I tell them about a boy that joined another troop but the rest of his
pack joined us. He wanted to be with his friends (instead of his brother)
after 2 months. He Sheepishly asked if he could change his mind of
which we were glad to do the transfer paperwork and he was off and running.
I also stated that we have had boys that decided to move to another troop.
I pledged that I would work with the other SM to transfer him to a
troop he would like to join... -NO BAD DECISIONS ---
They recognize a "safe" environment.
