    Why did you switch from Troopmaster? Our troop committee has decided to go with Troopmaster. Would like to know before we commit. If anyone has comments about it good or bad please post. Thanks!

    What are the causes of the Eagle Mill?

    Lack of training on the part of the SM,ASM's and Committee. easy way out for the troop leaders. They do such an injustice to the boys and they miss so much. I have seen 13 or 14 year old Eagles who couldn't lead a stick. Parents still in the Cub Scout mode and see it as another line on their college application. It takes boys longer to mature and develop, parents don't always see it that way. Our troop tries to provide a soild outdoor program, to teach basic life skills and to let each boy advance at his own pace, not all boys want to be Eagle Scouts. They are there for the program and to have fun and if that's the case so be it. I will not cave into parents who start pushing, I ask them to back off and give the boy some space to develop and if they keep on that track I tell them to start looking for another troop.
