One of the attorneys here will no doubt correct me if I am in error, but
I do not believe a Xeroxed signature is legally valid and therefore may
not acceptable to the local hospital. EVEN if it is considered legal in
your own town, you can't bank on a hospital in another town where they
know neither you nor the Scout agreeing to accept it (and thus opening
themselves to the risk of a law suit).
Therefore, if you're going to do this, you end up either having the
parent Xerox it before signing, and then signing each copy separately; or
you have them turned in UNSIGNED you copy 'em and then try to catch each
parent to get him/her/it to sign both copies.
At which point -- will BSA accept a Xerox copy of their form?
None of which has anything to do, IMHO, with convoys.
