My old Troop typically schedules Boards of Review on PLC night. PLC
officers do theirs before the meeting, and the rest of the troop gets
done during the meeting. We schedule our PLC for the Troop Meeting
following our monthly campout. Therefore, we get 12 Boards of Review
each year. Also, since campouts are the time that the majority of the
early requirements are typically met (and the SM conferences
completed.), this schedule works very well for us. Also, since the
parents are not involved in anything else during this time, it helps to
alleviate their time committment to the troop by scheduling it on a
night when they have to bring the son anyway. We typically have two or
three BORs running at the same time.
