Tenderfoot Board Of Review
One of the questions asked to me by an adult leader of the troop during my Board of Review was, "What do you think isn't good about the troop?"
I thought for just a moment. "Well," I replied, "the meetings seem disorganized -- like, not everything scheduled to be done is getting done."
The adult leader nodded. "And whose fault do you think that is?"
Which was actually a difficult question. Who is at fault for the disorganization? I could say the Scout leaders, but they did their best, I'm sure. I could say the adult leaders, but that wasn't a good answer because, in my troop, the Scouts are supposed to run the meetings. I could say the other Scouts for being disorderly, but that was not a fixed constant.
So I replied the safest way I could.
"Mine," I said, "for not being in leadership."
"Good answer," replied the adult leader.
