You guys have to read the whole message, please. I said that National had
phased out the Webelos Colors, but the uproar from the volunteers (processed
throught the proper channels for a change) got them back. However, you will
note that the colors still remain optional. What I was saying is that when
things hold as "optional" for any length of time, the item ceases to be used by
new leadership, and since the placement means eliminating other insignia from
the boy's uniform, is probably on it's way out. No difference in end result.
Just a different approach, and not one we can control.
If new leaders come in in the "rural" (as Mike stated) councils, and have not
heard about the optional colors, they will not be worn; so goes the scenario in
I never said it was being phased out directly.......read carefully my friends,
and look towards the whole picture.
