The smallest number allowed for a course is whatever number the
hosting council says it is. I was a course director for a council
that had not hosted a WB in quite a while and they were highly
motivated to get back in the game. I was told that the course would
go regardless of the number that registered. This was a decision
made by council and approved by Regional WB.
We did the best recruiting job possible and only ended up with 19 on
opening day. It was a great course. It was a lot of work, but well
worth it. It was held in 1999 and many of those on the course have
gone on to serve of WB staff.
The amount of work for a small course or a large course is the same.
I think an ideal course size would be 36--six patrols of six. But
our small course in '99 was a great experience.
