The only problem we have with cooking by patrol is that often times we
have one or two patrols represented by only one member on a campout.
It is for this reason that we cook as a troop. The Scouts, usually
PLC, plan the menu.
We charge a flat $15.00 (just started this recently), adults are free
but pay their own gas (they used to pay for the outing and be
reimbursed for gas), and any surplus will go toward offsetting the
cost of the more expensive trips (ski lift tickets, for example).
We just started this. It's a lot easier than buying the food then
splitting the money evenly, with each Scout owing $8.67 or whatever
for an outing!!
We charge dues of $20.00 twice a year.

Come on folks. Some of the posts in this thread sound like we are straying a
bit from the patrol method. There is no reason a patrol, other than a new Scout
patrol in the first few months, can't plan, budget, buy, and cook their own
meals. In fact, the game requires it. This is not new.
