so do we think that one of the goals of the change is to make the advancement to rank last longer?I think that a lot of packs plan on rank being achieved with Feb B&G. I have seen complaints that den meeting attendance and pack attendance suffers the remainder of the school year. By extending the length for rank advancement does that help with retaining scouts? In my unscientific observation the units that run a good summer program retain better than those that don't. Could this be true about lengthening the program to ensure a good March - May program. The counter to this is that a lot of parents and scouts view the scout season as Sept - Feb (with a natural slow down in Nov Dec) do they wabt it to be 9 or 12 mos long.
One of the things that i liked about Webelos is that you are able to start working on AOL so March, April and May did not feel like we were killing time working on electives / belt loops etc.
