<< 'm not sure that I agree 100% with Marcia Trudeau's list or, more
specifically, her assertion of "the more yes's the better".
This is not "Marcia's List".... Please reference BSA Publication No. 18-251
1995 Printing entitled "Are You Delivering The Promise".
As outlined on page 2, Paragraph 3, the BSA surveyed thousands of
Scoutmasters and Scouts. From that information, BSA was able to determine a
number of attributes common to successful troops.
Basically, this publication says that a successful troop is one in which the
Scout feels that the promise has been fulfilled.
This could be argumental, because, if a boy hasn't experienced many facets of
the BSA program, he won't know what he's missing.
Please read this publication. Its short and to the point, and I feel very
well done. It also has some wonderful pictures.
