All the debate on the validity of "specific" requirements
makes me begin to wonder about MANY of the requirements . . .
Some have not been updated in years, and some have been
= MAYBE = out dated by current regulations OR technology . . .
However _ In thinking of the larger picture of what the
larger gaol is - MAYBE - we can see that while SOME of
the skills MAY BE out dated, that while teaching the skills
we are still teaching the scouts to THINK, to be prepared,
to problem solve - maybe to be creative when faced with
challenges outside of scouting . . etc. . . ..
Rather than debate the issue FOREVER - on this or any
forum - try to see how it MAY fit into the larger objective.
After all - how many times will we have to move people
thru a giant "SPIDERS WEB" or change fuel canisters in
a "NUCLEAR PILE" ? But yet the team building skills from
those "games" are still valuable!!!
