    Choice is Not too hard if your a scout leader of the right sort as BP would say...

    The choice is the boy's of course...Its time for hinm to make some judgement calls and live with the consequences...

    Boy Scouting is shoulod not be an extension of cub scouts...

    of course if the troop by its actions and reputation are total; losers and a more camping club than scout troop then you might weigh in but ask around the district and get a feel for the scoutmaster's reputation, if the chartered partber is solid and the troop has a reasonably functioning committee...give them and your scout a chance...

    Oh....(no offense but) If you cant deprogram from cub scouting quickly , take some time and work with the district for a awhile until your cub scout myopia clears up ...that will hopefully keep peace with your sons scoutmasters and give you a chance to schmooze into Boy Scoutng...(important for troop harmony....
    You have somne homework to do and the internet will help you speed up the process.
    Start in the middle and work toward the historical and the modern at the same time (its exciting)

      Okay so I've started a blog on scouting and my first post was exactly on this subject. And yes, I am doing this to publicize my blog. But also get feedback and know that SOMEONE is a least reading it. So leave a comment if you like. Good Luck finding a troop.

        Selecting a troop appears to be a really big challenge.

        When my stepson's CS den of 6 boys bridged, they went to about 8 troops in the area.

        Only 1 was even remotely organized and well run.

        The group of 6 is now 3. Two didn't bother to bridge and one dropped out after 2 meetings.
