OA in our Council is not very active and only through the efforts of one of
our ASM's did we have an election late last year in November and the
District just had it's Camporee this past weekend where they had the call
out. However, no one from our troop was called out, supposedly because they
had been elected last year, although this was the first opportunity for the
OA call out since the election.
My son was one of those elected, but not called out. To say he was
disappointed would be a major understatement.
Is there some OA rule that says that they should not have been called out
becasue the election was last year, even though this was the first
opportunity for a call out?
Since Cub Scouts we've been told of the benefits of IMMEDIATE RECOGNITION.
OA call out would seem to be an exception and then to not call out these
kids becasue of the election time frame seems a gross injustice.
Can anyone enlighten me?
