This is good, and so is preliminary discussions in Patrols, with a spokes-person reporting back to the full Troop forum. We too have about 30 Scouts, and there's always the risk that the noisy ones will dominate, but going round each of 30 can take time. Discussions in Patrols first are one way to get more voices heard, though hardly a guarantee, depending on how good the PL is at facilitation.
