The egg. Long before chicken existed fishes were laying eggs.
>Which do you have first, the Pack Committee Meeting or the Den Leaders'
My pack did not have separate Pack Committee Meetings and Den Leaders
meetings. Whoever was in a leadership position was asked to participate
in the pack leader meeting. In that meeting everything got decided. I
could imagine that separate meetings can make sense if the group gets
too big, but it sounds inneficient. I do see three kinds of topics to be
discussed at a leader meeting: 1)prepare the pack meeting 2)administrative
3)training. In my pack it were mostly the same people doing the
different topics and one meeting a month for the big group felt like
If you do have two meetings, put the one organizing the pack meeting
first. If you need help finishing the pack meeting organization you can
usurp the second meeting. Don't ask me which of the two meetings
this would be; I would say it depends on personalities and pack customs.
When scheduling the meeting, it might make sense to consider
round table timing. Pack leader meetings should be after the
roundtable so ideas could be used.
