scouts-l Mail Archive for November of 1999: New Scout Recruiting
Mon Nov 15 1999 - 12:26:42 CST
I have always thought that we should recruit new (non-cub scout) boys in
March, April and May of their Fifth Grade year. Since most boys go to middle
school in the sixth grade, at least around here, we need to recruit them
before they are too cool for Scouts. The professionals nix-nay the idea.
Either the numbers will not count since our round-up starts in August (that
is for promotion purposes.) Anybody tried this or what do you think.
