He might Lose,
He may be starting with the wrong intentions,

See if you and your troop can give him a Shot,
(If you can't don't feel bad. Give him locations of other troops
(in your area to visit that might have older scouts that he can
(emulate. He will quickly see he has paled in comparison.
Sorry Guys, From here I am going to bridge off your posted ideas
since so often I agree with each of you.
Jason Cruse's Posting
1>Since I remember a bit more of the story I disagree.
Stick to your Guns as SM-Linda. You are a darn good SM.
2>Jason's mechanics seems pretty darn good for putting
some meat and dirty pork on this boys plate.
a>Adding to Jason's dirty pork, turning into a delicacy, idea
I might think about using the Historian position as a Human =
Interaction Position. My thought would be an Interaction Scout
Historian that needs to talk to each troop member, and their =
parents to trace their recent family history. Adding to this =
the History of the Chartering Organization's Top Guy (IH) and =
your current COR.
b>Hopefully you get the idea a Task with Meat that makes him
work and "positively" interact to "achieve". AH!! The BEAUTY!!
c>It does and will give you, him, and his parents something
to measure. Ah!! The BEAUTY!! They will each know before you.
My guess is that the parents will keep his rubber on the road.
d>Beyond this tiny idea use your imagination

e>You are the SM, You decide a leadership position that is a
challenge, is doable, and that builds, builds and builds him
and at the same time builds the troop.
Bruce Donato, Timothy O'Leary
1>Good suggestion to involve the committee on your thinking
yet some of us know why you can't rely upon their decision
due to conflicts of interest.
Mikee Walton (That Black Eagle Guy)
1>Again a good suggestion YOU should use even though, if I remember
correctly he is older and more influential than your current SPL,
so he could easily intimidate your current leadership.
So you will have to manage this interaction, (AH!! The FUN!!)
Sorry, I truly enjoy these conflicts as learning experiences
for each of them as young men and US as leaders.
a>Yes I would use Mike's idea so as to build both to better
understand participatory democracy and working with new
leaders. It is a bit of a personal challenge yet your current
SPL will grow from the experience. Grab an article or two or =
clipping from the current fall of the government in India to use
as reference material to help the guys understand how governments
work or don't work based upon mutual purpose and the current leader.
They might then better understand roles that scouting is helping =
them learn. You will have to extrapolate or interpolate to their
condition and feel you are stretching things a bit yet "so what"
it is real even if they don't know it yet.
1>I share some of Joe's frustrations with adults not willing
to take on this kind of challenge which is why I hope you can
feel comfortable accepting the challenge. =
a>At the same time YOU have to understand your and your troop's
limitations and where you and your troop are right now today. =
You have been through this limitations stuff more times than =
most of us can count due to difficult situations so you know
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
