    • Tell that to all the Scouts who have claims for male-on-male abuse.  There are far fewer Scouts who are willing todo that to a male Scout than a female Scout.  Not worth the risk in my book.  National and councils aren't going to pay out again.  The next round will be on the adult leaders who failed to prevent abuse, even if you were sleeping through the night when it occurred.
    • That's ridiculous.  Edit: For starters, a significant percentage of linked gender troops in name have been functioning co-ed troops in practice. I know, I know -- they were not supposed to -- but plenty have been doing it nonetheless. 
    • We run our pack with coed dens, but pre-pubescent kids are totally different than those on the other side.  I wouldn't want to be a leader of a coed troop.  Imagine the law suits you'd face because a girl got pregnant at camp.  Are leaders supposed to stay awake all night to prevent Scouts from heading over to another tent or wandering off into the night for sex?  Our leaders as a kid couldn't keep us from running around in our underwear, playing capture the flag with other units' flags. We got in trouble the next day and had to return the flags and apologize (after getting dressed).  Pretty easy fix.  Trying to fix a night of sexual indiscretion is quite a bit harder.  It's like we have learned anything from these suits.  Scout on Scout sexual assault is a big factor in them.  I think that adding a bigger fuel load to the environment is a bad idea.
    • Where did you find this regulation?  For at least 30 years, I've seen the sash worn with a t-shirt at OA events.  People don't normally work in the hot sun while wearing their uniform shirt.   “The Order of the Arrow sash is worn with the official Scout field uniform or Scouting’s official adult professional dress wear (a blue blazer and gray slacks). The sash also may be worn by Elangomats who are not in uniform at an Ordeal, youth wearing ceremonial attire, and in such other instances as approved by the Scout executive.”
    • Though on this side of the pond we likely missed the Aug 1 date,  IMHO this is a thrifty opportunity for marketing the Scouting Brand (from World Scouting Foundation) - Scout Scarf (Neckerchief) Day was Aug 1. The idea of "Scout Scarf Day" on August 1 is that all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the "Spirit of Scouting" visible: Once a Scout - Always a Scout!  The date of the event commemorates the very first Scout Camp on Brownsea Island in 1907.  Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.      http://www.scoutscarfday.com/?locale=en
