It sounds like you have the makings of a plan. Who do you have to see to
take on that operation? Right now, while its hot on your mind, what would
you do different? How?
Right now, before the fire fizzles into yesterday's news, who could help?
What professionals would be required to answer questions, maintaining the
precious boundary between volunteer and paid worker?
And if you aren't the one to put it together and offer it, who would you
back to facilitate the next meeting of this kind?
I kind of hope you've already turned in for the night. Hate to think of you
and your family up all night tossing around ideas about making a seemingly
worthless 2 hours and 55 minutes come alive.
Fine ideas often come from a need for something better.

I just walking in the door back from the BSA volunteer torture session...
In my six years as a SM I've not once even heard of SMs getting together to
discuss issues particular to our jobs, do such meetings happen anyplace?
We joke a great deal about that "one hour per week" but, seriously, I just
gave 3 of those hours for 5 minutes of information...
the time is not the issue, it's what we do with that time
that's important to me.
