How about a teeter-totter-type board where the Cubmaster lies on it and
is turned nearly upside down?
Note: Where can I find the written directives from National where it
was stated a new Bobcat should not be turned upside down and the
practice should be halted?
There is so much I hear claiming to be National's position (not just
regarding this topic), yet I cannot believe it until I see it in print.
It's not that scouters are dishonest--it's that many of us tend to
interpret the rules rather than following them to the letter. It would
be beneficial to long-time Scouters to receive an annual update from
National regarding program and policy changes.
