It seems to me that your unit deserves to know the criteria on which
Scout-O-Rama Booths are judged. If you do not now a person on the committee
that judged booths, I would suggest that the question be raised at a roundtable.There should be written quidelines given to each judge. A copy of these
quidelines might indicate why your unit received the score that it did. My
hunch is that it had something to do with how visible the boy's participation
was. One of my early years as a scoutmaster, I allowed my ASM's to exercise
too much leadership over what was happening at our Troop's Scout Show booth.
At the end of the day a friend of mine who was a judge pointed this out to me.
Needless to say, we didn't make that mistake again. Boy leadership is the key
at meetings, on hikes, a camp, and even at scout shows.
Just a thought.
Yours in Scouting, Bob Sargeant, DC for the GW District, NCAC, BSA. I used to
be a fox.
