<< Eric K. mentioned a "rule of thumb" that I have wondered about. I have
heard (or been told) that the more often you meet (once or twice a week),
the stronger the unit. I have always been involved in groups that met
weekly, but set up my unit to meet twice a month, with other activities
that round out the schedule to once per week. Are there any units out
there running strong ships with a twice monthly schedule? Or does that
doom a unit? I have kids with a lot of other commitments.

It has been my experience that a ship that meets weekly is a stronger ship. In
your case, you are providing program for your kids on a weekly basis. This is
definately better than taking every other week off.
When you do this, it becomes easier for the kids to forget that this week is
the meeting. They may find other things to occupy their time.
This is a good way to lose kids.
