I wrote Darryl back privately but now that there have been several concerns
about my post, thought I'd better clarify....here's my post to him:
Nope, you're absolutely right! But as I said, they DIDN'T WANT to get
their Eagle through the Crew knowing that the crew was basicly a father/son
exotic camping club that wouldn't last.....they were right. The Crew now
has NO members and is ready to fold. The boys wanted the security of
getting Eagle from our 76 year old mother troop.....they just didn't wanna
give the troop (read the younger scouts) anything in return.
Guess I didn't make that very clear in my original post. Thanks!
