I've got a question for you. I have seen the posts on
Paint Ball, and can understand why BSA doesn't allow it.
There's just too much chance on someone getting injured by
a flying paint ball.
"The activity commonly referred to as "War Game"-in which

My question is, does the same statement in "The Guide to
Safe Scouting" apply to Laser Tag?? There are no flying
projectiles or anything. Last December, my troop was
getting ready for our annual trip to play Laser Tag (it was
our third year in a row.) When I took the tour permit to

not allowing Laser Tag, and was using the Paint Ball
statement in the guide to safe scouting as his reasoning.
Can anyone help?? I know the last word rests with the
Scout Executive, but has anyone else had any experience
with this?? Any ideas on how to change his mind??
