Our troop is less than 3 years old and is fairly small - 20 scouts.
We have 3 patrols. Last night, I started the Patrol Leader Council
for the first time in our troop. It was the BEST meeting that our
troop has ever had. The Patrol Leaders met with their patrols before
the meeting started and they talked for about 15 minutes.
The SPL then took complete control over the meeting.
After the business meeting, the older boys (16-17) gave some
backpacking instructions to the middle age boys (13). The
older boys have been doing this for the last couple of weeks.
We are planning a backpacking trip next month.
An ASM then talked to the new scouts that just bridged over.
The PLC decided that the entire troop will work on the
Electricity MB next month.
The boys in the PLC seemed VERY excited about having
control over troop activities.
I am writing this to the list to let those know who haven't
done this in their troop, that this really works!!! I am sure
that we will have some growing pains, but you have to
Keep the Scout Spirit burning brightly.
