I know this is in the OA realm. But I could not agree more with this. My Boy Scout Troop took 3 patrols to the annual "Polar Bear" competition (Other councils/districts would call this a Klondike Derby). The "Black Sheep" Patrol of Troop 40 took first place overall. Why? Because the Scouts wanted this and the boys actually planned and made this happen. The adults just stayed in the background and provided transportation.

The only thing I would change to wagions quote is "If you want a strong Troop, let the boys lead!"
