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.
I certainly agree with you Richard. Maybe the BSA should post to the Web and
mail out substative changes to health, safety, and requirements?

there an official policy and/or form? Inquiring minds want to know.
