The choice to run for SPL is made by the Eagle Scout. In my Troop's
case, the 2 Eagles (under 18) declined nomination to run for SPL. The
declined with the explanation, they will help whoever gets elected, but
feel they should not run as they were both SPLs for 2 terms already. BTW
both are JASMs, both are OA Lodge officers (Lodge Chief and Vice Chief).
Both do help out in the Troop. This past Saturday they were part of the
Patrol that participated in the Klondike Derby! The OA was running a
concession stand. However these scouts put Troop before OA!!
