Archery tag? That sounds like a game everyone, except the winner, only plays once. :o

When I was little, my brothers and I engaged in a lot of sibling riflery.

I miss my brothers...

Hey wait…this seems to kill an old idea that I thought was a good one:

Quote

“Each patrol should have its own separate tent at some distance (at least 100 yards) from the others. This latter is with a view to developing the responsibility of the patrol leader for his distinct unit.”—Robert Baden-Powell.

Does this mean that patrol tents (unless all patrol members happen to be within two years of age of each other) are not allowed? Or does this only apply to normal two-man tents (which I would agree with)?

When I did YPT (in 2018) I thought it very odd that 4 scouts in a 4-person cabin could have an age range of more that two years,  but 4 scouts in a 4-person tent could have a max age range of 2 years.

Look what you've done; you pointed it out to them, and now they've taken it down. 😛 I don't suppose you have a copy to share? 

Edit: Found it.

Glad they took it down. Just wish they would correct the inaccurate statement that "Dodgeball has never been an authorized activity in Scouting. " A Scout is TRUSTWORTHY.

Yes, Eagle, but those BSA fundraisers you cited are for ADULTS, not the scouts.

Dodgeball is simply much too fun for children.

Check out the first link. Aged based categories and a youth is pictured,

I was always taught a Scout is TRUSTWORTHY, and the folks who wrote the FAQs were either ignorant of BSA's approval of the game, or deliberately lied. Now that it has been shown that it once was approved, they took down the offending page, but have not corrected the FAQ.

 

Owell's 1984 anyone?
