Every Wednesday after Patrol Meeting is over, I get a bit despondent; I get to feeling "WTH am I doing all this for, anyway?". We have a going-through-the-motions tradition of Scouting around here, but there are no real expectations for the program at any meaningful level of leadership. Except for some parents, I've never received feedback of any kind. Never from the Primary presidency whom I ostensibly answer to, never from the Bishopric. [Exclamatory word deleted], not even from the Scouts who aged out of the 11YO group. Does that mean keep doing what I'm doing, keep pushing harder to pull things in line with the way Dr. Harris describes them? Throttle back and just let things slide, pencil-whipping badges? All for what? The Activity Arm for Young Men around here is so badly atrophied as to be completely useless. I'd say put it in a sling so it can get SOME support, but no-one remembers their First Aid well enough to make one.
