1. OA must never interfere with a scouts duty to his troop.
2. A scout is expected to LEAD in a leadership position. Not just have
a position. The key word is: LEADERSHIP in Leadership Position.
I had a life scout that came from another troop. He was in our troop
for two years not showing leadership. He did his project and throughout
that time I told him he had to show leadership to someone other than his
family (mother, Father & Brother) and I. On three separate occasions I
told him this. He and his father thought he was finished and came to me
saying that he still needed four months on a leadership position and
wanted me to appoint him a position, he also only had four months left
before he turned 18. First I told them that I didn't appoint positions
that the SPL did. Then I ask "if you get a position are you going to be
here every week of you final four to fulfill the position". He said that
he had football every week and could not. I said: "I'm Sorry."
