Not to say knowing the rules is unimportant: But having the boys (& girls if you have a crew) get out there in the woods & have fun doing things for themselves is more important than slavishly following the "rules". :twisted: :) Or maybe that is the most important rule that binds them all.

Sometimes if you don't follow the rules it will bite you on the behind big time. We have a Chief Scout that is all about that. Training, Rules, Safety.

AND 1980 just sounded like a good date LOL

I am not saying ignore the rules. Just don't get so tied in them that you use them to never do anything. I am also not saying any one here is doing that.

Actually it was 1984. There is a book by the same name that is a thinly disguised lament about the demise about the loss of control of the boy scout rule police. :wink:
