I rarely wear a hat or cap, even at Scouting events. At most summer
camps I've attended, a hat was required, so I've worn one. I also take
mine off, along with the guys, inside the dining hall. It's just
But please, Scouters, if a boy forgets, just remind him. Don't reach
out and grab his cap off of his head. Rarely does it teach him - it
just embarrasses him and makes him mad. At Jamboree, I forgot to take
my staff cap off in the dining hall. (We had to eat quickly and go back
to work to let someone else eat.) The TPB SM came along and grabbed it
off my head, removing a huge hunk of hair at the same time. My ponytail
was stuck through the back opening and it did not break away when he
grabbed it. His action served no purpose other than to pull out hair
and make me mad. I still forgot to take it off in the dining hall
occasionally, especially when I was in a hurry.
All he had to do was say, "Cathy, your cap?"
