My understanding of the Board of Review was that this was the way the
Troop Committee "tested the waters" in the Troop. From the questions and
the boys responses they are able to determin how the Troop program is
going, how the leadership is performing and how the Scoutmaster and his
assistants are performing their responsibilities. If a boy arrives at the
BOR unprepared, afterwords the committee should be approaching the
Scoutmaster. The Scoutmaster should be the turnback point. I've put my
older boys on notice that if during a Scoutmaster conferance I find a
requirement lacking I'm coming to talk to whoever signed them off.
And I've told the committee that if they find a boy reaches the BOR that
is unprepared then they must pass him but they should hold me to task for
passing him through. Since I took over as Scoutmaster last Spring, we
have not had this situation occur, So far the one or two boys that were a
little weak on a requirement have agreed to go back a redo it.Those were
requirements signed off before I was Scoutmaster. The whole troop has
seemed to sign-on to making sure that arequirement is met beforesigning
off for it.
