If there is concern about people forming cliques around what patrol they
were in, the easy way to end this would be to stop the system of
standardized patrols. If each course's participants chose their own patrol
names, this would make it very difficult for them to identify with Scouters
from other courses who share patrol names with them.
This would also mean foregoing the profits that resulted in that large
increase in Wood Badge memorabilia sales.
