Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: Meeting Night
Tue, 20 Oct 1998 10:46:09 -0700
I ask the wisdom of the List for help. We are discussing the pros and
cons of different meeting nights. We presently meet on Sundays. This
causes us to miss many meetings due to holidays and not meeting on
campout weekends. The SM and ASMs all agree that the program is being
negatively impacted by the missed meetings. Committee members argue
that we have better attendance because there is not a conflicts with
athletics (games/practices) and school (homework.) They also feel that
changing would send the message that they have to choose between Scouts
and Sports. Please respond to two questions:
1) What night do you meet and why?
2) What do see as pros and cons to Sunday meetings?
Thank you for your participation. I will be happy to share the
responses with those interested.
