Over the last five years we have offered OWLS in the spring, but
have only done two because of low registration. With the change in
the Webelos program this year (February bridging), we made concerted
efforts to attract Webelos leaders that had just moved up from Bears.
Our council has always had a successful fall OWLS. If you wait till
the fall, you only have one year of program left. We have never been
successful in getting new Bear leaders to OWLS, ie six months early.
Have any other districts been successful in a spring program?
Also, why does National make program changes without first changing
the training syllabus? Some packs get the information, others do not.
This leads to confusion and an often misapplied program. Sigh,
maybe someday they will catch up with the world and train people
before you make a major policy change.
