Although I have no philosophical objection to your troop following this
procedure, I do not believe it is a BSA policy. In Troop 911, the SPL
and ASPL are not officially members of any patrol since they serve as the
troop's top leadership and must therefore be "unbiased." Our SPL/ASPL
do generally eat with a patrol during campouts, usually the Venture Crew,
although they could certainly cook for themselves, if desired (or eat
with a different patrol). All our other troop officers remain members of
their patrol, performing their troop duties as well as their duties as
a member of their patrol.
