Having been a CoR, I find this somewhat troubling.
Why should the CoR wanting to take a more active
role in the troop his organization sponsors (I could
even say OWNS - but that would appear argumentative)
be a problem.
I infer it is a problem by the use of the word "force."
As CoR I sat on virtually every BOR our troop had for
five years. I did not run things, but I was there.
I went camping with the troop, went to summer camp,
even attended Wood Badge.
I never felt like I was "forcing" my way in. Perhaps
looking at it from the CoRs perspective may lead
you to welcome his involvement. An active CoR can
mean good things for a troop, with respect to sponsor
