I have been following this thread along with interest, this is just a query
and thus as an outsider may seem daft to your system. But with the Post why
cant one ship sponsor another ship? Here in Australia when a Rover crew
starts up it need to be sponsored by another Rover Crew so that everything
is done correctly. What I am suggesting is that if another Ship want to
start and is having trouble then why not it become a sub-unit of Ship XXX,
so that everyone is covered by insurance and are still part of the scouting
movement and not miss out on the other activities. There is always more
than one solution to a problem.
