How do you promote your troop without disparaging another in Open Discussion - Program Posted April 5, 2007 I'm reading through the topics and spotted how to promote without disparing another-- This struck home -- for the last eight years our troop works closely with our feeder pack--den cheif, pinewood, skit night campouts etc. Three years ago the webelos went to another troop -- so last year I called the WL and asked why? he told me that the troop SM will be taking the 11yr old webelos to sea base that year and that our troop was to small (something about critical mass )bunk-- high adventure for sea base requires min.14yr olds-- anyway that lie caught up to them, no sea base, 4hrs troop meetings and other things, the scouts drop out of scouting all together. What have I learned... I give all the webelos our troop program,on webelo to first class scout program, listing camping dates and every thing needed to get that first class rank and a soild scouting program. You don't need to be disparing to others.
