Hello, Has anyone heard if there is/ will be a patch or program for the upcoming astronomical event, the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn (next Monday)? In 2017 we did an event for the Solar Eclipse and the boys got nice BSA patches commemorating it. This is a rare event (planets haven't appeared this close since 1623) and I think it would be fitting for a patch. But, thus far, I haven't heard or read anything about it. Thanks!
Thank you all for your replies. I think I'll tell the parents that we'll follow the '84 - '18 guidance and that either uniform (blue or tan) will be acceptable. Individual scouts/ parents can switch uniforms at their own convenience. I knew there was no "uniform police", perhaps was just looking for some assurance that this (not following the latest uniform standards) was somewhat justified and had a measure of support. Thanks!
Hello all, I’m a den leader who’s boys are now transitioning into Webelos. My understanding is that they are supposed to wear only the green and tan uniform and that the blue on blue one is no longer allowed for Webelos. This is a problem for some of the parents who can ill afford a new uniform right now. Also, when we started in the Cub Scouts, the uniform for Webelos was optional and many of us (including me) specifically bought ones large enough to wear until they transitioned to Boy Scouts. It seems unfair and wasteful to change the rules midway through their tenure.
