I tried for two years to get my Webelos den to agree on a patrol name.
They went through the entire list of patches and could not come to an
agreement on any single name. We tried voting, but some would not
accept the majority's selection. We tried everyone listing his three
favorites and three absolute rejects. Guess what happened there?
In the end, without a consensus that everyone felt OK about, they
remained Den 2. That they could live with. And so could I.
I do like Jim Sleezer's approach, with the patrol name coming out of
an experience that could be shared as part of the mystery of the
patrol. Now, I wonder how I could sell my Scouts on that?
