  1. The "well meaning vigilante" was the SPL, what he did cannot be undone. (unless someone wants to go latrine-diving.) He did not have to come to me, but felt he should do so in conscience.

"If you were on a camping trip, and you happened upon two other scouts doing something inappropriate, such as smoking cigarettes or maybe pot, or drinking, what would YOU do?" (emphasis being what the boy would do, not what he thinks should be done). He seemed extremely uncomfortable and fi
  5. Hi everyone! I've been continuously registered the the same unit (Pack then Troop, then Pack/Troop) since 1970. I'm currently a Pack CM and Troop CC, as well as DMAL. Formerly a troop ASM and CM as well. I'm entering my 30th year as an adult in the Troop (7th in the Pack). I have enjoyed reading the offerings in the forums for quite some time, and hope to be active in them as well. YIS, Frank
