This could also be a troop related thing. My first troop is who had this as a rule and they were also district trainers at the time. I will research this later to see if it was possibly an old rule revised.
Troops are not allowed to make up their own rules! And if they're making up rules and passing them along they should be shot.
I personally do not have a problem with it. It gives scouts something to look forward to anyways. My boys didn't wear it till 1st class and they were ok with it. Not a big deal.
I will look when I have time to see if this was a troop rule, which is acceptable.
Troop rules are called bylaws. We make amendments to bsa policy. As long as the two do not overlap in policy, it is ok.
I do not see an issue with this like I said.
If this was a policy of climbing and our scouts are not of age, different story. Driving longer than bsa allows in a day, different story. Shortening requirements, different story.
Again, till I find the source as to where this came from back in 2000, I cannot argue the point nor do I really want to. It is trivial as compared to other things. Mb sashes are traditionally only worn during Coh and ecoh anyways.
