bolo ties (& note on push-ups)

My troop has decided to go with bolo ties for the official troop
neckware, so I need to find a place to get some made up (preferably
not too expensive). If anyone has recommendations for companies to
use, I'd appreciate hearing them.
And as I was looking through the March-April 1998 issue of Scouting
for ads about bolos, I noticed a short bit in the letters on hazing.
At the very end of the "official" reply to the letter, it quotes the
SM Handbook as saying "Corporal punishment and hazing are not
permitted." It seems to me that push-ups, whether or not hazing, are
certainly corporal punishment. So by that standard they are not
allowed by the BSA.
