polarbear replied to mreep's topic in The Patrol MethodLonghaul, Thanks for the update. I am a new unit comissioner for a troop and pack (Retiring Cubmaster). I was looking for a "how-to" guide for my young leaders. We have a long way to go in our troop, but we are making headway. Thanks again for the help.
Hey y'all, I'm new here (my first post) but I've been in scouting for about 15 years. It seems like this "golden rule" is more about keeping evil sheath knives out of the boy's hands. On the other hand, I've seen the results of improper axe handling and the same with saws... Not a pretty sight. If all that we are worried about is sheath failure, Kydex is really tough stuff. Just my two cents worth. Ron
