Why not ask the boys? When we start planning the next year's schedule we
take time at a meeting or campout & have the boys make a list of everything
they'd want to do. Almost anything is OK--about the only things we don't
allow on the list are activities not permited by the BSA. We leave the list
posted for a week or two so they can think things over and then hold an
election. Then the TLC & the Committee take over and try to schedule as
many of the top vote-getters as posible. We do this sometime around July
or August after the District & Council schedules are out.
The boys will come up with things you never heard of.
