Yah, figured I'd spin this off from da other odd thread that was gettin' all confusin'.
The topic is "Patrol Method Made Simple". Everyone gets one post to offer practical advice to a well-intentioned scouter who has had a year or two in da program and is steppin' up to be Scoutmaster. He/She wants to use Patrol Method effectively. Give your pragmatic, practical advice on how to set that up. Assume a typical troop of, say 22 boys on paper, 15 active includin' three high school aged boys, plus 3 crossovers from one pack and two from another. Right now they've got patrols on paper only as administrative groups for meetings.
Note: This is about Patrol Method, eh? Not Youth Leadership. Yeh can include a bit about trainin' or helpin' PLs and such, but let's not mix this up with Boy Led.
