we recently had this conversation at the district level. could not find anywhere where it says that the scoutmaster/father or a parent could be an observer in the advancement guidelines. I know that this is common practice but can somebody point me at the correct citation for this.

Somehow I feel the legal beagles will successfuly defend that the position of parent trumps anything...
so regardless of what any of the documentation states in print, if the parents wants to be there, we cannot deny them under the open door policy.
