I like the idea of having training at RT. I might try to do that in
September. We have RT 11 months, taking July off. As for the questions:
1) At our council office
3) NLE - 2-3 times a year
YP - In the past, usually once a year. Now that it is on line,
probably will go every other year.
CSLST - 2-3 times a year
TCC - I've never done it, so I'm not sure.
CORT - See above
DCT - Don't think we've ever done it at the district level.
4) Not very often. We had an evening training meeting year before last,
mainly because I had a few leaders in my pack that wanted to go at that
time. Only 2 people showed up.
