Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: patrols?
Sun, 13 Jun 1999 16:54:44 EDT
Greetings fellow Scout Leader,
my name is Robert cutting, I am an Assistant Scout Master for TROOP
I have been asked by my Troop Committee to research how other troops
organize patrol in their troops.
currently troop 1620 picks it's patrol leaders and they pick their patrol
members by lottery. In
addition we only allow first class scouts and up to be Patrol Leaders.
We hear that some troops let the boys pick their own patrol leaders
without guidance from the adults. We also hear that there may be some BSA
concerning the operations of patrol but we have not seen any.
We are contacting as many troops as possible in the hope that they
might give us some
suggestions before our Aug. Committee Meeting on how best to organize patrol
and how best to
use that patrol structure.
How many patrols do you have, how many scouts in each patrol, how are
and organized etc?
If you have any information and or suggestions you would like to
share please e-mail us.
