Not being a Bufalo, but a "Fearless Fox", ---- I get my beads in ONE WEEK ---
I can speak with some small amount of authority.
Sounds like you need to convice your guys that the need to just "play the
game" and have fun. The presentations and the stuff that goes on at
assembly at Gillwell can be some of the most memorable things about
Woodbadge. One thing to say to your patrol members is that as long
as they just bitch and grouse about other patrols, they will get nothing
out of the course. I guess that in some ways they are acting just like
13 year olds... (The staff has succeeded) Now it is up to your guys to
get it together and figure out better presentations to make....
Put one of your "Buffalo Chips" on a string and present it to the SPL or
to the SM... The rest of the staff will get jealous and want them to.
Give them out as rewards to the other patrols. Each member of you patrol
should have a few on his stave..
We had blue colored Fox cut outs -- everyone wanted one... All of our
patrol members had them on their staves...
That is enough of "spilling the beans". Woodbadge is a unique experience.
Good or bad times, enjoy them and learn about situations and how people
handle them.... Watch how different people react to situations...
