RE: troop paper work
Health forms are required at the camporee for Rising Star District, Sam
Houston Area Council. The district staff makes it very clear at round table,
in camporee handouts, and on the web site. If troop leaders dont follow
instructions and are allowed to get away with it, then what does this say
about our integrity and character and what we are teaching the boys. I know
its was a hard lesson for the scouts, but the leaders should turn it into a
learning experience. Show the scouts that no-ones perfect, we all make
mistakes and we should be accountable for our mistakes and except the
consequences. We should not blame others for our mistakes.
