Wait, from your previous posting, I thought we were in
agreement for once :) I think the KEY phase is "ADULT
SUPERVISION"!! I did NOT entend to imply that SCOUTS
could use liquid fuel equipment with OUT adult supervision!!!
In fact, our council ADULTS are not even permitted to use
liquid fuel equipment, even on BSA treks, UNLESS they
have attended the training and have a card. In fact,
I thought the card was from BSA, like the Tot-N-chip?
IT sure looked like it, but mine is in my camp wallet.
It would not be a major surpise if our council was not
following BSA guidelines, but I even was lead to believe
the the training guideline was from BSA, maybe even the
cold wether program OKTPIK or what ever is the term.
I thought that was the emphasis from you posting of yesterday!!!
ADULT supervision! On long TREKS, and even Philmont, you
really don't have much choice except for liquid feuls.
Did I misread what you posted? Or did you mis read mine,
thinking that the training was ultimatly to allow SCOUTS
to use liquid feuls on theri OWN. In fact, the training
to to insure the leaders/adults know liquid feul safty,
and know that scouts must be in dirrect suppervision of
an adult when using liquid fuel equipment. You have me
ver confused, and I think some others on the list at this point.
