I don't think that a point system would be a good idea. This would lead to the boys
planning good deeds to get that all important 10 points.
Scout Spirit should be taught as a way of life. As opportunities present themselves
they are acted on and the scout feels good, a clear win/win situation.
I always remember an episode of Kung Fu (don't laugh learning can come from anywhere)
in which Kane tells someone that for every good deed done to you, you should do 7
more. The trick is not to count and just DO.
