Maybe my information on Webelos and their transition to Boy Scouting is a bit
old, but one saying I remember is "You can't push a rope." If you have to
come up with a list of reasons to transition now, then it sounds as if the
Webelos Scouts are not yet on your side.
Is there a way to make your spring and summer program so exciting that the
Webelos Scouts are pushing their parents to be allowed to participate? It
strikes me that the best reason to join now is all the exciting things they
will miss if they wait until the fall. If there aren't that many exciting
things, or if they need to be convinced that the things are exciting, maybe
there is a message.
