As a commissioner, I hate to see this, precisely because Bert is correct.
Class "A" means Class "A" -- or actually "field uniform." That includes
scout pants. My troop, and I'm sure many others, interprets Class "A" to
mean scout shirt and dark pants (jeans, etc.). My response is that they can
do what they want, but they can not call it Class "A".
We've had the uniforming discussion before, and I'll simply say that the BSA
regards the uniform as important. What does the word, uniform, mean? Look
it up in Webster's. It does not mean, "wear what you want." If you think
so, try telling that to the football coach.
