My name is Myron Thomsen. I have been lurking on this list for some
time and I just wanted to tell all how much good information I have
found on it. I am going to become Scoutmaster of the Troop at our
Church on the South Side of Milwaukee, WI. I was SCM about 12 years ago
and have served in various district positions since. Both my sons are
Eagle Scouts and my youngest is now 22. I have a question for the
list: How do I get the PLC in our Troop to take over planning meetings,
outings etc. I sure don't want to do it by myself. At our meeting last
night, I had the Scouts who showed up to begin to plan the year and tell
me where they want to go camping, hikinh etc. I received some good
ideas but the Scouts were reluctant to give ideas. The former
Scoutmaster pretty much did the planning all by himself.
Thanks for your help.
