Which counselor a scout goes to is in the control of the SM and his/her
SAs: they sign the blue card, and fill in the name of a counselor.
Thus, they can direct the scout to or away from a particular counselor.
A troop could have formal procedures, or a SM oculd have his informal
method, of making sure a scout doesn't get counseled by a parent.
