I have to agree w/Stan on this one--you can't just keep doing something
because it's always been done. Sometimes a change is good when you learn
what has been done in the past hasn't really served the boys. I used to
do the turning upside down thing in our pack meetings too, until it dawned
on me that perhaps it bordered on hazing, and there were other things that
could be fun to do, too!
