I made my previous post based on information from what I considered to be
unimpeachable sources. I now think that there might be a loophole in all this.
>From the BSA Finance Division website:
"The official uniform is intended to be worn primarily for
use in connection with Scouting activities. However, the
executive board of the local council may authorize wearing
the uniform in connection with council-sponsored product
Can't this be interpreted as allowing the local Council to authorize Scouts to
be on TV if some of the money from the "acting" or subsequent sales of the
product goes to the Council?
Looks like a loophole to me.
