Just had a committee meeting. I'll fill everyone in in the morning, with
other questions that I'll have then. But, I have one that is immediate:
my recollection from woodbadge and adult basic is that two deep leadership
applies to *every* activity, except for a patrol meeting held outside of
troop meetings (as I recall, that is someplace in the SM Handbook). In my
Youth Protection training (here's part of the problem--I'm the only one
trained in the troop, at least for YP), I thought that the discussion was
that if you have three patrols on a campout, and each patrol has a
different activity planned for Saturday, you need six adult leaders, one
for each patrol.
There is a member of the committee who argues that if a patrol wants to go
on a hike on a campout, and holds a patrol meeting on that hike, they do
not need two-deep adults.
Which one of us is correct? By my YP training, that scenario (presented by
a committee member) is incorrect. He won't go by my word as SM or
YP-trained-- I need chapter and verse for a BSA publication here.
And, for my own curiosity (if I'm wrong), I'd like a citation or two as
