It sounds to me as though the problem presented lies most with the
district chairman. If he or she won't do anything to break up the
clique, but then chastises for sending scouters to other districts to be

Who else would, who really counts?)
Perhaps, if the above really is the case, a visit with the DE or Council
Training Chairman is in order. This situation goes against everything

encourages people to go with whatever district they can, just so they get
