<< Particularly I am looking for ideas on how to help any troop
with possibly less experience depth to have a way to potentially
keep each scouts' skills in tip top shape.
At first, and still after awhile, it is frustrating to see scouts
no longer able to tie the simplest of hitches, know the simplest
of first aid, menu planning, duty rosters, etc. >>
How about contacting your local OA chapter and arranging for some of the more
experienced Arrowmen to come to your meetings and lead "classes" on these
subjects? As for keeping in practice, getting ready to compete at any
camporee ought to keep everyone's skills honed.
