Greetings fellow Scouts and Scouters,
Please allow me to begin by saying how VERY PROUD I am to be associated
with an organisation such as BSA. In view of all the negative press that
many programs are subjected to it is gratifying to see that five young
men were honored this past Monday with BSA's highest award for heroism.
My question concerns uniform headgear. I have been thinking about trading
my ball cap for a red beret. Does anyone know if this is still permitted?
I understand that the beret was once available through the catalog but is
not any longer. What is the background for this change?
Also, does anyone know how I might get in touch with the Scouting
Organisation in Australia? I would like some information with regard to a
possible high adventure trip in conjunction with a visit to the 2000
Olympics in Sydney.
I'll eagerly await the wisdom of the List.
