Each week a different Patrol will lead part of the meeting. They need to come prepared to teach the skill to make the meetings run efficiently. For most of the skills they will only need about 10 minutes of preparation time to learn the skill prior to the meetings. We are having Patrol meetings during the Troop meetings, for the scouts to fine tune their skills to teach.
If time permits we will work on advancements and have some fitness activities.
At the end of each meeting the Patrol teaching at the next meeting will be told. There will also be a reminder Email prior to the meetings. The Leadership and JASM scouts should brush up on these skills so that they can mentor the scouts.
