I am *SO* glad this is happening. I've worked as the Webelos Director for
Day Camp in our area and I can't begin to tell you how many hats with pins on
them we had by the end of the summer. The boys would be playing and running
around and would eventually take the hats off. Only a few would pick them up
and the others never saw the hats again.
The Colors were physically attached to the uniform and just wouldn't fall
off unless you used the shirt as play clothes (which you shouldn't do anyways).
I still have my colors from when I was a Webelo. So many parents say... "Well,
I always forget to take it off the shirt". Well.. who's fault is that?
Certainly not BSA's. :)
All in all, I am VERY happy to see the Colors used again!
