During tonights meeting we did not do very due to to fact that I as the junior assistant scoutmaster did not communicate enough information to the adult leader in charge that I had the meeting under control, so he automatically took charge of the meeting and stopped the meeting early, due to the fact that their was supposedly nothing to do and the fact that Pat did not show up to the meeting. I think that it was my fault that I did not more clearly take charge but I guess the reason I held back was because of the chain of command system in a boy scout Troop. The other problem is that the adult incharge I believed assumed that since Pat was not their, their was no meeting planned. This is because of the fact that in this Troop we are adult runned, boy sit down and have fun Troop. I have been workoing towards getting youth leaders to take a more active role in decision making but it is going to be hard because I have to break the traditions the Troop has stood for, for several years.
Well that is how the meeting went, It was not a complete failure and the information that the camp out on this upcoming weekend was canceled, which is definitely vitally important.
Yours in Scouting Service
Junior Assistant Scoutmaster
