  1. So then the question is, should I include the "types" of leadership for troops in a flyer to the Webelos parents? I feel that by doing so I am then promoting "Adult Tun Troops" as acceptable and normal... and I'm not so sure I want to do that. Here is that whole section from what I pulled off the internet which was called: Guide for Selecting A Boy Scout Troop. I liked the piece otherwise but this section sent up a red flag for me: Troop Leadership: Troops can be run by the Scouts, by the Adult leaders or some combination thereof. -Troops that are run by Scouts develop strong l
  2. I'm working on some handouts for Webelos parents on how to pick a boy scout troop. Some of what I've pulled off the internet as far as evaluating troops says under Troop Leadership: "Troops can be run by the scouts, by the adult leaders or some combination thereof." Is that true??

  3. Thanks.... that's been driving me crazy for awhile. I guess I just need an explaination for everything!
  4. I understand what you are supposed to do... but what does it mean? Why the number 2 and where did that come from???

  6. Fuzzy - I don't know much about any other council or district other than ours... but our council offices are located almost 2 hours from us.

And the DE is telling me that we can go ahead with this idea... so if it was infringing on his fundraising I would have expected him to object. I'm not saying I agree with the idea of corporate sponsorships. But it seems like in our economy it has unfortunatel
  7. Our council does not collect donations in our area.... so that's not an issue. But I'm being told that as long as we have the sponsorship checks made out to our charter organization, who will then need to write the check back to us, that we can do this.
  8. We were thinking about getting some corporate sponsorships for our Pinewood Derby. Our district exec said it was fine... but I also want to be careful to not make our event into one big advertisement. Are sponsorships something that may be frowned on at all by national or council? Do you think there is a good balance that can be reached where the local businesses are supporting scouting without it becoming too commercialized?
