December 8 2008 Meeting Review

After Meeting Review
Well this meeting our SPL was absent from the meeting so our ASPL had to lead the meeting and I am please to say that the ASPL did a fairly good job, our Troop really does need to work out the kinks regarding how announcements are suppose to happen but other than that the meeting went great.

Tonight while the other youth were playing board games i had the opportunity to pull various individuals for end of the year interviews, so I can gain valuable information on how people think the Troop is doing. This information is very important to me because it allows me to imrpove and it also allows other people to give input on how the Troop should function. Back to the story though, I basically ended up have a fairly good conversation with a younger scout which made me realize a couple of things. Those things include that I am a demanding and loud person which to others can be seen as being bossy which is one item I really need to work on and another thing I notice was that it is sometimes very hard to make younger scouts see that sometimes it is necessary to be bossy in order to accomplish certain goals. I did not get the point through to them but I tried and I will continue to work with this scout in a patient and calm manner in order for this scout to see the importance of following through with directions given.

Yours in Scouting Service

Junior Assistant Scoutmaster
Troop 1616

  1. Year-end reviews. Great idea. I've got the second problem you noted. I don't know when to get bossy. As chairman I have to remember that I have to get things done and not try to be everybody's buddy. Thanks for the reminder.
