Just visited your web page and realized that you have approximately 1
leadership position for every 2 boys. So finding enough leadership slots
doesn't seem to be an issue.
I stick by what I suggested about limiting boys to one tour as a Den Chief.
Even if they really like the job, it's still important for the boys to learn
to be leaders among their age peers.
I expect to have the same discussion with my own son since he wants to be a
Den Chief. :-) I think he can be elected or selected to another slot when
he needs leadership roles. (He is finishing his First Class this month and
already has the merit badges for Star once he finishes his 20 nights of
camping for his Camping MB (he has 18 nights)).
