Goede- My condolances on the loss of your scout and very best
wishes for the recovery of those injured.
Re: the general topic of safety at Scout Camp-- I wasn't surprised
that the rope broke with so many people involved. (I'm aware of
some decapitations on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier when
an arresting cable broke). I'm wondering- since Tug-o-War is a fun
game- if there are safety stds published -- the number of people
max on a side vs the diameter of the rope, e.g.
I'd be interested in learning how safety is observed at scout
camp- esp. given the frequency of lawsuits these days. I hope
that scouts can still have fun- but safely.
