Congratulations, Good Luck, and God Walk beside you.
You know just as much, if not more than I and other lifer Scouts-Lrs,
so you personally should be GREAT!!!. Your messages over many years
have been great as has been your attitude so you got the "internals"
and the knowledge to do GREAT!!
My only added advise, you might not consider, is to structure your
Troop Committee Meetings using the Training Committee person that
is in the current books. Slowly start to show and discuss the many
videos, and books on scouting, and use that agenda time slot to
let new people discuss what they have learned either independently
or from BSA provided SMF or College of Commissioners. Don't ever
stop the training even when considered boring.
One thing I am sure you will understand by now, is that the inter-
relationships in a good scout troop aren't exactly obvious to the
casual observer. Factions tend to develop as each person only learns
their job and has no idea of the importantance of another's job.
Continual learning can fill in the gaps and create more peace than
we have tended to observe on Scouts-L.
AGAIN!! Arizona ChuckB GO w/G, HAVE FUN, and BUILD.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
