Keith, you are fortunate, in my District Woodbadge has become a special
"club" and many of the things already discussed in this thread are true
in my District. Such as getting people through SMF as quickly as possible
to then get them over to Woodbadge. The My unit has more WB's then yours.
I think that maybe it's finnally backfireing however as I've heard that
our District is sending fewer to Woodbadge this year then in past. But
hidden in that statement (heard at the last District meeting) was that

The fact that National has begun to at least acknowledge the problem is a
step in the right direction. Remember we're here for the boys and trying

that goal but we need to always question individual and group motivations
in attendence and participation to keep us on track.
