I'm sure Kathie and all the rest of you are correct in the conclusion
I do have just one *teeny* little question? If the troop manages to sign
up every semi-active parent in a leadership position, just WHO is left to
sit on a BoR?
It sort of sounds as if the literature is suggesting we go out and snag 4
random passersby; since this is clearly stupid (not to put _too_ fine a
point on it <G>), I'm missing something important, I'll bet.
Probably it's my interpretation of "leader" vs that used by the
literature. Mine would include any adult registered to the Troop (MC,
ASM, SM, CC, COR, Merit badge counselors, etc).
