New Scout Patrols:
How do you have a patrol of 2 boys?
We traditionally have had mixed age Patrols, between 2 and 3 in number.
Whenever I have been a Scoutmaster (about 8 years in two different states)
the PLC has always been in charge of Patrol organization, and have wrestled
with any necessary changes.
Adults should never reorganize Patrols; at most, adults try to help the PLC
reach a decision that it is necessary.
