Switching from Mon to Sun afternoon doesn't appeal to me.
I moved around the country in my younger days and was a SM in NC and
Texas before settling in SC. In the several troops I had; I always
moved our meetings to TUESDAY night.
The reason for this was that everyone; including me, seemed to have too
many conflicts on Monday night. Even the teachers seemed to give a
little extra work to get kids back in the swing after the weekend.
Mondays after a monthly campout were always a catch up time at home as
well, so with Monday meetings we had difficulty meeting the day after we
returned from camping. I felt 3 meetings a month were not enough to
maintain the focus for the youth and get all the prep done for the
monthly camp outs.
Tuesday meetings were a good compromise for all of this and has always
had great parental support.
