Whether you intended to or not, Drew, I think you're going to get one. I
only wish to add here that of the 40 or so responses to my original
queries on the camping MB, you are the only one who has said that by
putting the name on the card the scoutmaster is NOT in any way
responsible for the card. In fact, everyone else has said just the opposite.
Just wanted to let you know what you're fighting against.
