I certainly hope that it's permitted! I too checked the list several years
ago and, not finding it, organized our first Webelos Laser Tag Lock-In.
This event is four hours of unlimited play, pizza and sodas and the guys
look forward to it every year! The boys have the run of the place and can
play as often as they want. We hold it a few days before bridging and it
is, therefore, one of the last activities in the pack for the 2nd Year boys.
Some of them enjoyed it so much that they went on to establish a similiar
tradition in their troop.
A word to the wise, however. I require a signed permission slip for every
boy. No slip -- no play. Some parents may disapprove of this activity and,
believe me, you do not want to set yourself up for that kind of grief.
