I'll 'fess up and say that my troop USED to do this. We didn't have any
disasters in terms of cleanliness--just too many dishes that didn't make it
The rule now is that if the dishes of ANY patrol aren't clean (and by clean
I mean *scoutmaster clean*) when we pack up, the quartermaster takes them
all home to wash them. In the past 18 months, that has only happened once.
The QMs have made certain that it has NEVER happened again.
