Reminds me of the time I was up at our Council Camp, Camp Strake, doing some
maintanence on our COPE course that is in a woodsy setting. We were trimming
some small stumps along a trail left over from an OA ordeal weekend and I
asked the camp Ranger for an ax to break them loose and he said, "We don't
keep axes around this camp, our Council Risk Management Team would never
allow it, we only show them to the scouts at summer camp who are working on
First Class Emphasis".
Show them? I wonder if they use a photograph or a drawing? Then you might
only risk a paper cut.
