Well our troop is one that has positive experiences with upwards of 15
adults and 40-60 boys on a campout. But I must disagree with the hot dog and
potato chip patrols <g>. Our last campout, one of the patrols upstaged
everybody with an excellent meal of corned beef and cabbage. Another did a
sweet and sour chicken over rice while yet another a pretty good potato soup
concoction. There were of course the standard pot of stew, a tuna casserole
and my regrets to the Flaming Arrow patrol who burnt the chili. But everyone
pitched in and let them share some of the other patrols fine cooking. It's
more like a smorgasbord of gourmet cooking, and we keep them limited to
$1.50 per meal per Scout. The adults, well, we just had spaghetti.

With luck they will cook good meals and provide a tantalizing example to the
hot dog and potato chip patrols. And think of it as a chance to look over
how they do and select your next Assistant Scoutmaster(s).
Thank you for listening.
