We also retired a flag at our meeting last night. We did it at the end of the meeting in the parking lot. I gave a short speach at the meeting room, then the SPL lined the Scouts up and walked in silence to the parking lot. Ceremony was done by Scouts and audience was told ahead of time they must stay silent when in the fire area. At the end the troop was dismissed with the admonition by by the SPL that if they wished to stay until the fire went out, they must stay in silence. About 1/3 stayed. It was nice.
I would be interested in knowing what you did for your search and rescue exercise, and how it came off?
