So now I cannot reserve our Cub Pack meeting on the designated night for my wife (the Cub Master) because the other ward has put a 1-hour reserviation in the middle of the pack meeting time and blocked the entire building for our ward's events. Am I missing something here because this makes no logical sense to me?
Let's get our terms straight. A "reservation" is something that can only be created by a building scheduler. It is not an actual event, but rather limits who can actually create events for that building at that time. So it makes no sense to say that the other ward put a reservation in the middle of your ward's pack meeting time.
Perhaps you mean that the other ward scheduled an event in the middle of your ward's pack meeting time. That may or may not be appropriate, depending on the rules that the bishops in the building agreed upon.
In many multi-ward buildings, the bishops (or their designated representatives) meet together and work out the basic schedule, that might include rules like "Ward A gets the cultural hall on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays; Ward B on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays; Ward C on Tuesdays" or "Ward A gets the Primary room on 1st Thursdays for pack meeting; Ward B on 2nd Thursdays; Ward C on 3rd Thursdays." Once these rules are agreed upon, the building scheduler can (and should, in my opinion) create reservations that enforce these rules.
If such reservations are set up properly, other wards can't schedule on top of reservations belonging to other wards. Using the example rules I just mentioned, if anyone in Ward B tries to schedule the Primary room on a 3rd Thursday, they will not be able to do so; only Ward C can schedule the Primary room on a 3rd Thursday.
So it sounds to me like the wards in your building don't have clear rules, or the building scheduler did not set up reservations to enforce those rules, or the building scheduler allowed someone to schedule an event contrary to a reservation, or your people are confused about how all of this works.
