The rule you posted reads like something from a unit policy.
As far as I know, it is not a national rule.
Anymore, when you talk about active participation, you need to
take the young man into consideration. If he is active in his
school or church he may have schedule conflicts that would
limit his participation in the troop. He may also have employment
conflicts. Sometimes even academic demands (homework, finals) interfere.
You might consider the following questions:
Does the boy make every effort to attend meetings and activities?
Does he set a positive example consistant with his rank and position?
Does he take an active role in the meetings and activities he attends?
Does he inform someone in a timely manner when he has a conflict and
Personally, I would steer clear of some hard and fast definition of
SM Troop 565, Deltona FL.
