This is a question about permission forms. Here in Australia we cannot take
the Venturers anywhere unless they supply us (the leaders) with a permission
form. What is it like in other countries?
The kids I am with didn't supply one lat week and we refused to take them
anywhere and thus threw a wobbly at us and decided to go on the activity
anyway without us. They declared the meeting closed and then left, as
leaders in an advisory roll it couldn't do a lot other than inform the
parents what has happened. We have been backed up by the hierachy that we
did the right thing.
The permission forms are a leggal document that covers us (the leaders) in
case of the scenario turns unfortunately sour, such as an accident.
Looking forward to some comments.
And for those who do not know what throwing a wobbly is, it is like spitting
the dummy, or if you are still at a lost, a tantrum would be the best
No evil laughter this week
(hehehe) just a snigger instead.
