I concur with the pants optional uniform.
We ask that any Venture Scout have a full uniform on when represeting the
Troop or BSA.
We ask (Note I said ASK) that any Scout attending an Eagle Board of Review
have on a full uniform (pants, shirt, socks and belt).
We have an Honor Patrol competition each month that rewards a patrol for
uniform use (along with activities abd advancement).
We went from 10-20% Uniform (Shirt Only) to near 90% in one year of
encouragement(after WB SR-182).
I, an adult ASM, have worn our a pair of long pants in 14 months by wearing
them to every event including summer camp, camping trips and meetings.
