To the prior poster - who chose the "easier troop"
No one should have to "dread" going on a scout trip,
nor is there a law requiring a person to fix all the worlds ills
so don't feel bad for not trying to turn a substandard troop around.
If its still really nagging you, do some other civic-minded things to balance
the accounting of your life.
For some of us, we may take the hard path both from a "do-good" point of view
and as a challenge to ourselves to grow as leaders/mentors etc. Or it may be
from sheer stubborness. Different strokes for different folks - as they say.
Getting back to the original poster with the renegade troop, it would be nice if
he updated us monthly and we tried to continually support him in his efforts -
all of us could learn how to work through such a challenge. Heck, we might even
use some of our sugestion on our own troops.
