So why would you go to a scout BOR without your uniform. I agree with ED, you can't deny a boy advancement because he is not wearing his uniform. I have always handled that by asking the boy where his uniform was, if it wasn't a good reason, I would simply defer the BOR until the scout was properly prepared (uniform).
It is common knowledge in any troop I've ever been involved with, that you wear your uniform to a BOR.
Just my opinion for what it's worth, before everybody gets their flamethrowers out.
By deferring the Scout's BOR until he has his uniform you are in essence saying "Wear your uniform or no BOR". That's adding to the requirements.
What if a Scout showed up for his BOR in a suit?
