I remember having the problem of never departing on time when I
was a SM. I solved it, by leaving promptly at 5:30.... Folks who
were late were a bit upset that they missed the trip that weekend,
but people started arriving on-time once they knew our Troop "said
what it meant, and meant what it said" on this and any other topic.
Seems this has worked no matter what volunteer group I've used
