As long as everyone is helping Linda, how about some advice for me.
Steve Scout (Sam's brother) is the Troop QM. Since he took office, the
troop has engaged in a number of activities which did not involve the use
of the Troop gear. (Backpacking, snow skiing, etc.) He did attend a
Winter camporee as QM, but otherwise he has done nothing to be "active in
his job". He has missed some opportunities in order to participate in
the OA dance team.
I do not think that he has been active in his position as QM. A
significant reason, however, is that normally his duties would be carried
out on Troop campouts and activities, and we have not been doing those
activities. We are going on a hiking, climbing and rappelling campout
this week-end, but he is in a mandatory driver's education class.
Sam and Steve's younger brother Sheldon is my Troop Librarian. There is
not much for a librarian to do in our troop, and he has done it all.
He certainly has not been "active", but he has done everything there was
to do, and equaled the efforts of former Librarian's. I have been
thinking up extra jobs for him which are not necessarily "Librarian"
jobs, but he feels that these are not his responsibility. (I know how he
feels since Sheldon lives at my house since his parents kicked him out.
What do I do?
