A good idea, in theory, if you have heartburn with the
national organization or even your own council. In practice
however, you've really got to find and remediate the source
of the heartburn.
You can eventually make the national organization (or your
council) go away but, without the national organization
there are no high adventure bases, Jamborees, handbooks,
manuals, training curricula......
without your local council, there's probably no camp
property, summer camp program, districts, round tables, SMF,
So. like it or not, you've got to deal with the "system" and
fix it.....if you are of the opinion that it needs fixing.
