Do you have quarterly Scout parent meetings?
I’ll answer an email question about parent’s meetings in this podcast. On our quarterly Scout parent meetings that include a court of honor. Everyone arrives at about 7PM, the Scouts go outside to play a game and the committee chair and whomever needs to (depending on what is going on, if there’s a fundraiser it may be the person running that) talk to their parents for about 15-20 minutes about what is happening the next quarter.
When we are done the Scouts come in and the senior patrol leader takes over and does the court of honor. The court of honor is reasonably informal (we have a set script but we adapt it to the situation) once he’s done we dismiss to juice and cookies.
I’ll also answer an email question about the challenge of being a Scoutmaster, and whether men or women make better Scoutmasters.
