Not to avoid the ultimate question, but....
We do not have a "permanent" CSRT and BSRT, although both meet the same
night, same location, different rooms.....BSRT starts 1/2 hour later because
OA also meets the same night, same location, different room, earlier hour...
We have successfully had joint meetings for Key 3, and, last month, for
certifying leaders for Safe Swim. This is irregular, but seems to work
well.....We alternate rooms and start times. We (The CSRT Commish and I)
discussed the possibility of permanent joint meetings, and decided it won't
work because the parents at CSRT need to leave earlier than when BSRT is
over.....only because of OA....about 50% of BSRT attendance comes for OA..so
we seem to be "stuck". (Right, Debbie?....she's the CSRT Commish, is on the
list, and may have other insights/opinions....and may respond as well)
I have seen the posts from successful combined meetings (Sigh!) where there
is an alternation for Opening, Closing, Prayer, etc., common announcements,
and "Breakouts" separating the evening Topic or Presentation between Cub and
Hope this helps.....just my $0.02.
