How about a Roundup horror story. (Actually it's not that bad).
The primary school that we draw our cubs from is a Model School that
attracts students from all over the city.
We have, for the past few years, had School Night the same night as
the first PTA meeting. The rational being that it is hard enough to get
the parents' out two nights in on week.
The Council designated School Night was Thursday, ours was
Tuesday. This was discussed with DE.
The Pack sent out Flyers for two weeks, the Council sent out those
wonderful four-color flyers on Tuesday.
We had six families show-up on Tuesday (our flyer and PTA meeting)
and two on Thursday. Last year we had 20.
We signed up 2 (another one went to a BSA troop). Fortunately, we
planned ahead and put contact info on our flyers.
Talking with other parents I found out that many had planned on
attending tuesday but thought it had been rescheduled to Thursday.
If we didn't have poor organization, we wouldn't have any at all!
