Well, so you should. Your former SM is incorrect. Patrol meetings in our
troop are required to be held outside of the reqular meetings. In this way
leadership and group process is really learned. Just getting their patrol
together in one place at one time is a leadership lesson for the PL and APL
that cannot be surpassed!
