Well, I vote for # 5. By diplomatic but up-front in a private
conversation with them. Explain that all adults are role models for
Scouts and that the liquor smell on their breath is offensive to many
people and not the example we want to set. If they agree to be
alcohol-free at all Scouting functions, then accept their help. If not,
say that you appreciate their offer, but no thanks. If they choose to
react badly then you know you don't need them as leaders. This is a
possible conflict situation, but setting the proper example for the
Scouts is far more important than conflict avoidance.
