Cannot say that I know a fix, as I have never encountered this problem. On
the other hand when as SM I hosted such things in my home, I always tried
to stir in some fun. We would order in pizza for the occasion; or hold it
in a back room of an estabishment which had games to pay when business was
done. Or hold them at a home with a pool, etc. etc. Leaven the business.
Also, but this is gutsy, let the troop fall flat until they see the need.
I am sure others will have additional, good, or better ideas! Hang in
there, young man!
