Is anyone else having this problem in scout troops? It seems to be ocurring in
our District more than we care for.
On our outings, the turnout is so low that we can only form one effective patrol
of 6 or more. So the scouts get jumbled into a "patrol of convenience". This
kills the original concept of the patrol method. The troop has a roster has 22
scouts that are "active" to a degree (I'm not counting the perennial no-shows),
and we established three patrols.
