Well, please don't take this wrong, but headgear regulations are
hidden somewhere so that they're hard to find. The last time I was able to
dig them out, it seems they said that the BSA "ball cap" or the
"broad-brimmed hat" could be worn. However, "broad-brimmed hat" was not
defined. Although we all think we know just what is meant here, perhaps
this gentleman is simply wearing his own definition of "broad-brimmed hat".
Several places I've been, people wore Western hats and they were, in fact,
"broad brimmed". People shouldn't bug the guy, maybe this is what he's doing.
