After some discussion this past weekend, I've come to the conclusion that
designating Webelos dens as patrols and Webelos denners as patrol leaders
may be doing the cubs a mis-service. The Boy Scout patrol leader has a
very different role from the Webelos denner. Calling the denner a patrol
leader may lead the boys to misunderstand the role of a scout patrol leader
and probably should not be done.
However, using a DEN name and patch rather than a number seems to be an
appropriate choice, especially for second year Webelos.
