Bob - How does the above coincide with the concept of a boy run troop? It
sounds like you as the Scoutmaster exercise a good bit bit of power in
removing a Scout elected to the position by the Troop.
Is the PLC involved in this? I like 1 -great idea, and 2 - a plan we
should all carry out with 3, but 4 is where I see the rub. The idea
appeals to me and as a Committee Chair at one time I met with the
SAcoutmaster and told him one Scout, a patrol leader, was not working out
and might have to be asked to step down if he did not improve. Elections
came up before that step was reached and he was voted out of office.
