scouts-l Mail Archive for November of 1999: Re: Rules and Regulations of B.S.A.
Thu Nov 04 1999 - 10:16:36 CST
A Scouter just wrote me the following. As I am a believer in these
documents, I am publishing his private posting to me. I have left his name
off, in case he is afraid of repercussions from his Council.
At your convenience, could you please advise me as to the latest version
of the Rules and Regs. that are available? No rush.
Sorry to bother you on this point. My Council does not acknowledge that
they are currently in existence.
The most current set I have is dated September 1998.
The front of the book states:
"The publications listed below are no longer available from Supply Division.
A distribution will be made to Scout Executives whenever there are enough
changes to warrant a new printing. Additional copies may be purchased for
$1.50 each, which includes shipping and handling. Send your request to BSA,
Mail/Purchasing S100, 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane, PO Box 152079, Irving
Texas, 75015-2079. Make check payable to Boy Scouts of America 79005-0260.
57-491 Charter & Bylaws of the BSA
57-492 Rules & Regulations of the BSA."
I do not know what luck you will have, but I am appalled that anyone would be
asked to play a game and then be told that they cannot see the rules.
Yours in Scouting,
