Meeting Review

After Meeting Review Troop 1616
April 29, 2008
This meeting for me was a little bit more stressful and I did not act very mature at the very beginning when my parents dropped me off because I was irritate and frustrated at my parents for being behind schedule for my standards and about the stressful situation that I was walking into. I snapped at the beginning of the meeting and apologize for that immature behavior. I will work on expressing stress in a more mature way in the next couple of week.s It should not have again.

After that blow up at the beginning of the meeting I was able to regain control of the situation and everything worked out according to plan. Tony who was serving as a Senior Patrol Leader for the week did a wonderful job at completing his job. I should have given him more time to prepare the fire building contest or I should have made sure that he was more comfortable with the situation by asking him more questions during the phone conversation before the meeting about how the meeting needs to work. This is my responsibility and Tony did not have any fault and did a excellent job during the meeting. I was only able to do the opening ceremony, announcements, and the closing ceremony due to the fact that our scoutmaster was not present and we needed someone who was fairly familiar with the summer camp program at camp gorsuch. Basically it came down to the fact that I was probably the most informed about this year's summer camp beside our scoutmaster because I and the scoutmaster have been conversing heavily about this subject.

Thanks to Tony and the other adult leaders who made this meeting possible. I apologize again for the blow up at the beginning of the meeting which was totally unecessary after reviewing the situation. Sometimes I just get too caught up in the fine details and forget the big picture.

Yours in Scouting Service
