I am a WDL [Webelos Den Leader] in a Pack (you can see the sig. line) that
has grown quite large. We ended the year with ~90 boys and recruited about
20-30 on Scout night. The Pack might be as large as 120, giving all the
coming and going.
There are some of us, parents and DL's, that believe the Pack is too large
to service the boys with any kind of quality. We draw our boys from a local
Elementary school and a few from other schools but that live in the
neighborhood and the PTA is the chartering org. At 90 last year the
District approached the CM with the idea of splitting, but he said that he
liked a big pack and the idea died there. This was a surprise to a lot of
us when we found out last summer, or later, that this had happened.
Certainly some of the TMOTSLL [Trusted Members Of The Scouts-L List] have
had experiences with splitting a Pack with both residing and remaining (not
with the same Charter Org.) at the same school.
How did it all shake out?
How did you avoid hard feelings? (or did you?)
How did you decide who went where?
You fill in more questions/answers that you faced.
Thanks for any suggestions/horror stories/glory stories/etc. (I'm NOT
writing a book!)
Come and Visit!
