    • Fully agree and well said. I think National's been pretty consistent on this.  If it looks like a Scout activity, two deep registered adult leadership over 21.

Worked it out with a neighboring council's council commissioner who worked at the place it was being done at. Between his periodic visits, and other Scouters working at the hospital to see what was up, we had it covered.
