Better check again. I remember a news feature a couple of years ago about
this little group of boys (in Georgia?) which called themselves xxxx Scouts
(Mountain Scouts or some such words which had nothing to do with BOYS) were
forced by BSA to change their name because of the word SCOUTS in their name.
It was *NOT* a complimentary feature on BSA, but dealt with the legal weight
of this HUGE organization coming down on these poor people who were just
trying to do good and be left alone. I doubt that anyone could get away
with such a similar name as suggested.
