Hello All -
I have some information to offer the list and I would also like some help.
I have had reason to type into my Mac the contents of the BSA publication
"Recursos Scout en Espanol" (Scouting Resources in Spanish, No. 94-002,
1996 printing). This is a list of all the BSA publications (documents,
videos, etc.) which have been translated into (or developed in) the Spanish
language. I will be happy to email a copy (couple of pages worth) to
I would like some help in finding three chunks of information:
I have seen some language in one of the BSA pubs that explicitly allows us
to copy the various BSA publications for internal Scouting use (training,
etc.). I don't recall where I saw it...does anyone know where it can be
I have seen some language that discusses the use (and misuse) of rope to
outline areas in camp. As I recall, the discussion indicated that using
rope is dangerous when it is low enough to be run into (in the dark, in the
heat of the moment, etc.). Does anyone recall seeing such a discussion in
any of our BSA literature?
What does it mean in the "Guide to Safe Scouting" when a statement is made
that clearly prohibits something...and the statement is NOT in bold face
type? Is the prohibition actually a complete and total prohibition that we
MUST follow ...or is it just some kind of recommendation or something? The
prohibition against using liquid fuels to start any kind of fire is an
example of this. It says "is prohibited" (period!), but it isn't in the
bold type which would indicate that it is one of BSAs rules and policies.
Are we are or are we aren't prohibited from using liquid fuels to start any
type of fire?
Thanks for the help!
