    • 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.
    • Taking a 1st Aid Course now. The EMT and nurse teaching it swears by q-tips dipped in dishwashing liquid for tick removal.
    • True, but according to National, 2 registered adults over 21 must be present as it is now considered a troop activity.

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.
