    If you had the power...

    Revision is slowly killing me, so though fun thread.

    If you could change ONE just ONE thing in Scouting what would it be?

    That money was not an issue in the running of scouting for everyone be it the individual or a group, we would be free to do what ever we wanted activity wise and buy new equipment when required. There are many times that we have scouts who in these horrible times that can not afford to attend many of the great activities that are available to them.

    I'd make scouty-type outdoor programmes on PayTV the next BIG THING, come up with a premier-league sort of TV deal divvied out amongst all groups and we'd never have any money worries again!

    Create two new district positions:
    ADC Assassin - to get rid of the leaders causing problems
    ADC Arsonists - to get rid of the buildings that are in dire need of TLC.

    I like the sound of that. Of course, an ADC is a 'supporter' role, meaning they are there to support the leaders, so they could perhaps support us by bumping off the odd district bod

    I'd take that appointment although I think I would prefer the title ADC Pyro
