I think the BASE platforms for our summer camp tents are 8 x 8 !
64 square feet, with 2 boys per tent = only 32 sq ft per boy!
I think many scout camps have the same tents and platforms.
However, I have noticed that the NEWEST tents, desiged to be used
with 'OUT rigger' platforms, are about 9 x 9, which would provide
over the required 36 sqaure feet. I guess that means camps will
have to replace hundereds of tents and platforms very soon!
Maybe they can get some with BUG netting as well!
I think several Jamboree troops also planned to use the Delux Voyagers
for the Jamboree. Does that count as a 'long term' camp? Will
the campsite inspection inlcude TENT measurements?
WOW! I was on TV carry the FLAG of the Chezck republic for the closing
of the World University games on ESPN. *(but I could not wear my HAT)*
