: I can, and will do both (scouting AND football)

Thanks Brent for having a good attitude. The troop desperately needs older, experienced scouts like yourself who are willing to give back. It's not a major commitment. The troop isn't asking for 75% of your time like Enrico thinks, but instead its asking you to participate in at least 75% of the troop activities. And yes sometimes that requires sacrifice. But lately many scouts haven't even been participating 25%. I want to stay involved in Scouting as an Assistant Scoutmaster, but if it continues down its present path, I will resign. Not because I'm a quitter, but because I will contribute my time and resources to an organization that is effective. You know I don't believe its the Scouting Organization's responsibility to rehabilitate boys and young men, but instead it should be an organization of talented, mature, and energetic boys and young men. It's the state's responsibility to handle the juvenile delinquents.
