Hats on/off ..whatever

Our troop policy regarding uniforming is an official shirt, neckerchief and
dark pants if official pants not available. Hats are optional. However, unless
its an official Scout hat it comes off during opening and closing ceremonies.
We do have one meeting a month where complete uniforms are required for
inspection. Since we meet in a church hall (new location this year) I asked
our pastor the policy regarding hats. He said hats are OK with him. Kids being
kids and since I only have them a few hours a week (I know, they are Scouts
all the time) lets get real. I think its more important to try and get
something into the head UNDER the hat than risk loosing the boy because of it.
As they grow and take on a more responsible role in troop uniforms and hats
become less of an issue.
