Never, ever, make the scouts wait for recognition. If you are afraid
pushing will lose you membership through scaring off adults, ignoring
achievement will make the boy ask his parent for permission to leave. You
are right to pursue suitable ad hoc alternatives for the Board of Review. I
have been there, done that, with lack of active adults, and it poses
problems that have to be faced, not 'out-waited.'
In following the suggestions you have received for other unit's adults
helping out, do try always to get as many of your own adults as you can to
'sit in' and watch, or however you con them into the room. Some are going
to tell you they are too busy, because they are tired or afraid when you
ask them. If you make it sound super easy (which just sitting in is) you
may get one or two to start participating; once they start, the rest is
Thank you for listening.
