To Dan O'Canna;
In our troop, when we form a New Scout patrol, we give them the
guidelines which include when you attain the rank of first class, you
will be able to choose which of the permanent patrols you will go into.
Two key words in that statement, "Choose" and "Permanent". Part of the
plan is for New Scout patrols to shrink and merger as the year goes on.
Some years we end up forming a new Permanent patrol but it is formed
multigeneration. Also on outing, we almost never get all of a patrol so
when that happens, we form multigenerational crews if the outing
permits(and you'd be surprised how often it does). and the boys have
something to look forward to as they move through the ranks.
