Look at the tour permit from a slightly different view point.
You are the Scout Exec sitting at home watching the news. A broadcast comes
on that 13 Boy Scouts were injured in a car accident on their way back from
camping, some seriously. Are those your Scouts. Does your Council need to
mobilize it's resources to help families and those kids.
The tour permit should do that.
You are a brand new SM. taking your first trip. You have read the SM hand
book and been through some training. You remember you need to fill out the
tour permit. While filling it out you realize a couple of things you have
forgotten to do and who to tell about the trip.
The tour permits hopefully get stuck in a file and never used, but if they
are needed they can be invaluable.
