You should know better than to ask the Scouts-L list! You'll get 500
Most people who have read the uniform regulations book interpret the wording
there to allow wearing the Sash at most 'formal' occasions, and many of us
thus wear it. Our lodge advisor disagrees and wants anyone who plans to wear
it, unless performing a specific OA function at a non-OA event, to first get
permission from the Lodge Exec Comm.
Obviously the sash is wearable at any/all OA events. It is also wearable
if you are part of an OA team performing some service at a Non-OA event
(e.g. color guard or dignitary escort at Camporee or Scout O Rama).
One time it is absolutely NOT wearable is with a merit badge sash. That
is definitely either one or the other, never both.
Also, the Sash is always to be worn properly. never tucked in/over the
Some of our lodge arrowmen, when in Class A and seated at a dinner table
where a spaghetti sauce meal is being served will unbutton the sash and
'toss' the arrow part over their shoulder behind them to keep from splashing
food on it, but when they get up they restore it to correct wear.
