Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: Re: Boys'Attendance

My son's wise SM answered this question last week in a meeting. A parent
was concerned that her son wanted to take up basketball, with the practices
on the same night as the troop/patrol meetings. His response ?
"Scouting is a 12 months a year activity in this troop. Basketball season
lasts for 3 months. Have him call his patrol leader and find out what he
missed at the meetings, and try to make any meetings and campouts that he
can fit in, even if he has to come late or can only camp for 1 day. We'll
still be here when Basketball is over. "
Just my 2 cents.
