I recently began an adult QM advisor. I help the QM in keeping the QM
shack clean and advise him on how to check out equipment. The QM uses a
form for scouts and scouters to use in checking out equipment.
Name description date check out date check in
very simple and easy to use.
I also informed the QM to inspect all equipment to make sure of it being
clean and not damaged. If it is than the scout/scouter takes it back and
redoes it. If there is any problem about the equipment than it is refered
The troop as alot of equipment ie (tents, cook kits, stoves, first aid
kits, rope, ect. ect.)
Any body who checks out equipment is responible for the equipment that
they check out. If they sign it out and does not return it than the QM
will call the scout about it. So far (knock on wood) I have not ask a
scout to replace any equipment.
Before I took over as adult QM advisor there was know method on how to
check out equipment and some stuff turned up missing.
I hope this helps and good luck.
May the scouting spirit live long and prosper
