Hello, My name is Maureen Gelinas. I am the Training Chairman for the
Wannalancit Districy, Daniel Webster Council, NH. I have just returned from
a weekend session of SMF & JLT combined. 43 Hours of 3 patrols of adults and
5 patrols of young men. We run them through the same basic agenda but
seperate them for about 7 hours, during which time we use the JLT Video, etc.
We find this works quite well. We hold it at our Council BS Camp which is
always nice. We also, for the first time, have included 2 young men to act
in Guide positions during the training. I was a little skeptical at first,
but the results we better than I could have expected. They earned the
respect of both young and old and also learned things that you just can't
teach. You need to experience them. I will deffinately continue this
practice in the future.
