Two months and counting

In two months we head out to our week-long scout camp. So far it looks like we'll have a large number of boys attend. As always, someone will drop out at the last minute, and I'll have to figure out what to do about the money that was already paid for him to attend. It's always one of the ones that doesn't pay his deposit, but we pay for him anyway assuming he'll get it in.

This year I've handed all the money collection and camp registration over to the troop committee, like I've tried doing in the past. Hopefully this time it will stick, and I won't end up having to do most of it myself. I'm sure it's coming, though. Being a fully BSA-trained scoutmaster, I'm well aware of the way the committee should work. Being a Mormon scoutmaster, I'm well aware that I end up having to do all the work myself.
