This is a set-up right? No pack could be run this poorly in the past.
* Have award ceremonies at our monthly pack meetings rather than
holding most of the ranks and awards until the B&G.
Every Cub in entitled to his awards as soon as earned. A pack meeting must
have advancement in it every month.
* Eliminate the monthly 50/50 raffles.
Of course. Raffles are prohibited forms of gambling in Scouting. You aren't
teaching charity, you are teaching gambling.
* Provide some activities for the boys during the summer rather than
shutting down from May
Of course, Cub Scouting is a year round program. Doing so keeps the boys and
the parents interested.
* Have the dens perform skits and sing songs during the pack meetings.
Yes, yes, yes, yes.
