Why should this inactive SM get mad? He doesn't seem to care about the
troop in the first place.
But some questions seems to come to my feeble mind. Why is the Committee
letting the SM get away with all this? Would you consider becoming the SM
and turning the troop from a bunch of do nothings to an active group of
Scouts? Just a thought.
At any rate--Is your sons BSA Handbook up to date with all his advancements
correctly marked? If so, the new troop can use this as a record if the
deadbeat SM won't provide the necessary transfer form. BTW, does your troop
use TroopMaster or some similar SW program? Who maintains it? If it is a
committee member (Advancement Chairman), then he (gender neuter) can give
you a transfer form generated by the progarm and your CC or AC can sign it.
Then all you need is to fill out a registration form showing a transfer to
the new troop and away you all go. You should fill out one also, I'm sure
the new troop/committee will welcome you, also!!
