Jen - pack / troop discussion

J's troop was hit hard the year J joined.  They had 24 boys come in from 4 packs within 2 months.  They also had 2 boys transfer in during that time.  That next summer / fall they added 3 more boys.  Last year they brought in 8 new boys during crossover"season" and then added a few in the summer from transfers.  I'm not sure how many they are picking up this year.  The pack has 2 boys committed for sure.  I don;t know what the boys in the other area packs are doing. 

Kudos to you for working so hard for those boys.  It feels good to make things special for the kids, but it sure is hard not to feel like you were taken advantage of by the parents who didn't help. I just keep shaking my head in confusion about parents not wanting to be a part of the day. 

I like the idea of your pack meeting when the troop meets.  It could help both groups if they would occasionally work together.  :)
