Why would you insist on AT LEAST 21 Scouts. We are an effective, very active
troop with only 15 active boys and no it's not the same boys, we add new boys
all the time and older boys graduate high school. Most of our boys are in
scouts for life. We live in a town that has less than 3000 people.
That is really not a good rating factor.
Some troops run more effectively small, because we can offer more time with
the boys just letting them know we are there for them and they know everyone
one of us leaders personally. The Scoutmaster is almost everyone's Doctor,
the other ASM is everyone's fifth grade teacher, and I am the one everyone's
kids grew up with. Small sometimes is better!
Not griping just explaining!
