Having received feedback from parents in my Pack who had shopped both the
local council Scout shop and the BSA National Distribution catalog... and
had each been told that blue pants were on their way out in favor of
bluejeans for the Cub Scout uniform. I of course immediately checked with
my DE, who denied any knowledge (there's an easy joke there... but I'll be
kind this once).
Yesterday I called Mike Childres' office at BSA HQ in Texas, and was
assured in detail that there are no plans whatever to abandon the blue Cub
Scout slacks. Bluejeans are not being considered. Guess that's it.
Not the first time the local Scout shop has offered "official" opinions to
my people based upon their experience with OTHER units.
