As I read it, that is true. I'm not sure if there is a basic training for
OA Chapter Advisor, though.

I have two versions of uniform shirts. One for Cub Scout events and one for
Boy Scout events (including OA). The Cub version has my CC patch. The Boy
Scout version has my SM patch. In any case, you are never wrong if you
wear the insignia for you primary (registered) position.

Hey, I like that idea. I think I'll bring it up at the next troop committee
meeting. It might be better as a unit policy rather than a distrct mandate.

Anyone who completed Scoutmastership Fundamentals prior to the
introduction of the current troop operations plan (Jan '90, I believe)
cannot be considered "trained." There were many major changes that called
for a new (and initially flawed) SM Handbook as well as a new sylabus
for the Fundamentals course.
