When citing "facts" to the list, make sure to give your source. The "fact"
referred to here is NOT listed in the Guide to Safe Scouting. And, let's
think about this in a larger sense. How many Jamboree or Philmont treks,
for example, sponsored even by councils, allows boys to wear whatever they
want on the bus, but that they must be in uniform to get off the bus. If
this is indeed a "fact", then if this bus of scouts is in an accident, they
aren't covered? That is ludicrous...
I think Mike Walton hit it on the head in an earlier post--this is absurd
and simply not true. Please, someone tell me, if this is a fact, where is
this listed on the tour permit?
