First Off I LOVE your Scouts-L messages ever since you joined.
I read or pass on some of them to others.
DE-Ron and several of us look for Chapter and Verse on subjects
like this so I thought I would add one if I could find it in
2 minutes or less. (TCGBk:37, verses 2-3). =
Troop Committee Guidebook page 36-37 Recruiting Committee Members.
The entire section is good yet here is a line you should like
"Where do you find new committee members? The best source is
parents of troop members"
You will come to notice that BSAs literature and tapes are more =
INCLUSIONARY than exclusionary. They describe a path of goodness
in relationships that serve to GROW and continue to GROW troops. =
We and our fellow adults are the ones that mostly make it hard =
and add little to big exclusions to gain personal power over =
others. Some power is OK yet not a CC-Kingdom, or Louis XIV.
SO After a long search you might find a chapter, verse someplace =
that says "No Secret Meetings" or "When, Why, and How to hold
and Explain to your Troop Adults Private Portions of Generally
Open Meetings" it is more important to see that the BSA direction
as described OVER and OVER again is for INCLUSIONARY meetings.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
Mr Dave (Hawleyton, NY (Baden-Powell Council
P.S. Still hope to add to the suggestions of other helpful Scouts-Lrs
for the rest of your situation. Rob did a nice job explaining one =
of the tactics.=
