B-P once stated that the largest troop that he felt that he could properly
lead was 16 and allowing for better leaders than himself, he reconned that
therefore the largest troop size should be limited to twice that or 32.
In Canada where Cubs always meet in their Pack (as opposed to the
occasional Pack meetings in BSA) and where smaller groups (like Scout
Patrols) are "Sixes" the typical well run Pack is composed of three or four
"Sixes". Five Sixes is a handful and six Sixes seldome really works. Thus
it seems that BP was right about the proper size being between 16 and 32.
