like to throw in my $.02 on the scouts vs. sports thread. Several people
said they see nothing wrong with the Scout showing up for a meeting in his
sport uniform. Do you think the coach would share your same sense of
tolerance if the athlete showed up for prctice in his scout uniform. We
have a bathroom at our meeting place (a church) where many a Scout and
leader has changed into their uniforms. The more we relax our standards and
allow the boys to get away with it the more we can expect it to happen. We
do not need to put ourselves in competition with other activities but rather
coexist with them and work to provide a consistently excellent program.
Remember, it is no more acceptable for a boy to show up for baseball
practice in a Scout Uniform than it is for him to wear his baseball uniform
to Scouts. Just an observation. . .
. . . and a good ol' Antelope too. . .
