I agree, when we think of a scout, we visualize a scout in a
uniform. Not part of one.

and Mr. Covington says:
Our Troop requires a full uniform for each meeting, a uniform
inspection immediately follows the Chaplain Aide's message If a
does not pass inspection, he must call home and get the missing

The next days activity may require a change to our Class B troop

Follow your troop's policy. Don't compromise.

Maybe I'm wrong, but this looks like Mr. Covington's troop would
throw out a Scout if he didn't have a full uniform. It also looks
like he's proud of it! Surely you don't rerfuse to allow a Scout
to be a Scout without a uniform?
Used to be a FOX!
