Your tag line is quite correct. The written down rule of BSA is:ASM-142 wrote:Class A is required for both SM conference and BOR in my troop
If it is not written down then it is not an official rule
So if he HAS a full uniform, he should wear it with the patches sewn on in their proper position. If he has only a shirt, he should wear it with the patches sewn on in their proper position.. If he has NO uniform, he may still appear , dressed neatly, and the lack of a uniform may NOT be counted against him.Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures (33088E) wrote:The Scout should be neat in his appearance and his uniform should be as correct as possible, with the badges worn properly.

We do not allow any jeans or sneakers to be worn at a BOR. At the minimum, the scout must wear khaki, brown, green, etc. shorts or pants. They must also wear hiking boots or shoes.

Remeber thatthe methods are there for us as leaders not as instructions to the scout. Do you see the scouting methods listed in the Boy Scout handbook?
No, they are in the Scoutmaster handbook.
Good uniforming is dependent on us as leaders. Thats why the biggest hinderance to a scout not working toward a full uniform isn't the scout. It is scout leaders who violate the uniform policies and "alter" the uniform.
When you say the scout can wear dark blue pants in cubs rather than the uniform pants, or some alternate pants in boy scouts then you in effect change the uniform. And as volunteer leaders we do not have that authority.
Uniforming is limping along in most units because scouters continually shoot themselves in the foot when it comes to implementing the uniform method.
Wear full uniform for all ceremonial and indoor activities, such as troop meetings, courts of honor, and most other indoor functions
