Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Tent Management?
Mon, 9 Nov 1998 13:06:29 -0500
Has the list discussed tent management?
We are a troop of 60 Scouts and 20 leaders.
Tent management is the biggest headache of our whole program.
The new SM wants to do away with all troop owned tents.
He wants to require all new Scouts to buy their own, troop approved 2-man
We have already tried:
QM manages tents and assigned to each Scout per trip
Tents issued to Patrols and patrols are responsible
Tents are dried and cleaned at Scout hut and never go home for cleaning.
Tents go home with Scout for cleaning and drying.
Mark on tents the name of the patrol and number each component.
Has anyone actually got a workable system?
