In a message dated 00-02-13 15:35:51 EST, you write:
the 2d year Webelos program allows units to choose to stay with the Blue
uniform or switch to the Boy Scout uniform; one of the reasons I believe this
was done was to permit Cub units to make parents aware of the higher cost
associated w/ uniforming at the Scout level. >>
Sorry but I can't agree with one of YOUR comments.
The choice of Blue or Khaki uniform for Webelos is the INDIVIDUAL SCOUTS, NOT
the unit. Furthermore, it can be invoked at ANY time in the Webelos program
first or second year. The important thing is for the family to get the most
value for their uniform purchase dollars. Therefore, when Wally Webelo
outgrows his blue shirt let the family decide which color to replace it with,
why buy a new blue that will be useless in a year if a khaki may give 2 or
more years service?
