When I was SM I used an idea I got from the previous SM.
We had periodic surprise uniform inspections at troop meetings.
All scouts who received a passing grade received a 'gummy fishy'
as a treat.
The 'gummy fishies' cost about $2.00 a bag and would last for
many meetings at 1 fishy for passing, but the scouts looked foreward
to getting their fishy.
Our new SM has not followed that tradition and uniforming has
definitely gone downhill.
We also have Class A and activity uniforms. The activity uniforms
consisting of a red shirt with troop 16 patch is worn at most
activities with the 'A' saved for camporees, COH, BOR, etc.
