The troop ClassA dress uniform is scout pants ( not shorts), scout uniform shirt with proper patch placement, troop hat, troop neckerchief, black shoes or hiking boots. This is in the troop's by-laws. For a scout to receive his awards on stage at a court of honor the scout needs to be in this uniform or the scout gets the awards after the court of honor. This troop policy has been ineffect for years. Is the troop committee within its right to require this uniform for the scout to receive their awards on stage?
