Tough one! I have of late a similar instance with Ian our Troop
guide. He attends a school with alot of gang influence and they had found
out he is a boy scout (should there be any hiding of that fact?) Anyhow I
have told you what I look like and some other things, well, I went to
pick him up on the bike one afternoon, went to his class to check him
out, etc.. you get the picture. Well the next day he had no problems when
the boys that were taunting him found out "I was the Scoutmaster" There
is even a rumor that a couple of those boys wanted to come check out the
troop... I and Ian were just fortunate.
I used to be a Beaver...
