  1. Just to close this out, after an additional friendly meeting over a cup of Coffee, the SM agreed to step down. However, he changed his mind and a Committee Meeting was required. After 2 hours of discussion, he did agree to resign. Thanks to everyone for their feedback.
  2. Here's the latest. The SM sat down with the CC, COR, and another committee member. He went on for quite some time about what happened at camp and throughout the year, and promised to do better. In the process he pretty much bad mouthed every other member of the troop. He had no plan, but the COR sent him on his way. When other folks found out about this, there were many unhappy calls to the COR. The COR doesn't think he has the authority to remove him, so he asked for commitee meeting for a vote.

  3. Our Commissioner & COR have been apprised of our problem. They both agree that a change is in order. Can the COR make this change without a committee action?

  4. Folks- thanks for the feedback. Here's response to some of the questions. Yes- we have an experienced & trained ASM ready to step up. The SM has been in the position for a little over a year and has been through training. He previously was on the Committee and did very little with the boys. I am an ASM in the Troop. The CC agrees that there is a problem, as her son and his best friend want out of the troop. Three other Committee Member's boys want out also. There's going to be a meeting with the District Commissioner tonight to get some advise. The COR has not been
  5. This has probably been hashed over on this forum, but I'd like some fresh perspective. We recently returned from summer camp, normally a bonding experience for our troop, and the Scoutmaster is making most of the kids and all of the other leaders miserable. He's taken on a tact that since he's the Scoutmaster, everyone has to do what he says and he's offended when there is disagreement from the other adults (he's retired military). For example, he was really riding the SPL about getting the campsite cleaned for the day, after he had previously stated that he was going to let the boys be
