So the Scout Master is finishing his term on Thursday night at summer camp. I don't know if that is a tradition with the troop, but it seems like a weird time to me. Anyway, I think the main ass't scout master is taking over. At one point it was said that he was going to be unable to due to his job, but I guess that isn't the case now. I'm not sure who is going to step in as the main ass't when the time comes.
The Scout Master's wife does a ton of paperwork. She does most of the coordinating for events, has the med forms, attends Roundtable, runs the monthly newletter, keeps the website up to date, is the summer camp coordintor, is coordinating the 2014 Philmont trek, and sends out the weekly updates. She's wanting to transition most of the stuff over to other adults. There are 50+ boys in the troop & I can't think of anyone who is going to take on what she does. I wouldn't mind taking on a few of the jobs AFTER I get out of the pack, but right now I just can't swing being at pack meetings & doing more scout work. It surprises me that they are wanting to be done since their youngest son is only in 8th grade. All I can figure is that he turns 14 this summer and is getting close to Eagle. I am guessing he will head over to the Venture Crew soon???
When D transitions to the troop I agreed to take advancement if someone doesn't take it before then. I just keep hoping the mom doing it now will stick with it. Her boy is already an Eagle & a junior. She's at meetings even when he isn't able to be there. I guess she wants to be done with it now, but there isn't anyone to take it. 50+ scouts and keeping up with rank advancements & scheduling board of reviews is work.
I have a list of positions that need to transition in the Pack. We also have a ton of adults on the roster who never did complete all of the required training that will be dumped. DH and I agreed to be Pack CC and Cub Master for one more year. We want to finish up at recharter (Feb 2014). At that time he will be done except for BALOO and I will be just a den leader until D crosses over!!! Can I just saw WOW? I'm not sure if that will work, but I'm hoping we can get someone to take it on then. :)
