  1. Time for a new topic: To what extent are scouts involved in making the troop's budget? To what extent are scouts involved in spending decsions within (pre-made) budget categories? What have you seen (and how well has it worked)? What do you think is the ideal? What have been the major schools of thought on this subject? Obviously some expenses are mandatory if you want to be a scout troop (rechartering fees) and ought to be included in any sane budget. Other expenses I cannot imagine dropping (patches for ranks, merit badges, etc). But there is a lot of stuff that is rather discretionary: buy cakes for COHs and pizza for PLC meetings (some troops do)? how much to devote to buying equipment? Do the scouts have a lot of say, or little say, in the budgetting/spending process? And which scouts? Last year the troop had no money and no budget -- so we are starting from scratch here. Both in terms of building a budget, and in expectations for how much the scouts are involved in the process. It would be nice to have a broader perspective than simply that of the boys' troop of our same CO.
