A good Troop Duty Roster assigns equal work for everyone in the Troop. Done properly it will help maintain order, everyone will know their assigned duties and no Scout will have to worry that they are doing more than their share. Everyone will be assured the opportunity to be an active member of their Patrol.
Two weeks prior to departure, each Patrol is responsible for assigning a Grubmaster.
A Grubmaster… may have to breakaway from an activity early in order to start the meal. Prepare and serve the meal ON TIME; put away extra food and put trash from the food preparation in the trash; put wash and rinse water on to heat up during the meal; dump hot grease before they eat; assure everyone receives an equal portion (either serve the food to patrol members and guests or tell everyone the amount they can have). The cooks serve themselves last. Try to have everything ready at the same time. Remember: CLEAN AS YOU GO.
To help aide the Grubmaster in planning and assigning responsibilities for meal planning and preparation the assigned Scout must complete the TROOP 505 GRUBMASTER RECORD. The ASPL must approve the final Grubmaster Record 72 hours prior to departure.
Remember more hands will make the work easier. The patrol members are not dismissed to attend other activities until the kitchen and patrol areas are secured.
You are not ready, if your patrol is not ready. The Troop is not ready, unless all Patrols are ready. When the Troop is ready, then you are ready.
