    [Answered] Local Rules and Urban Myths

    Peter

    One of my biggest personal irritations in Scouting, and one that I hear from a lot of other Scouters is the fact that there are a lot of so called Urban Myths and Local Rules in place in Scouting.

    Local rules or urban myths usually meaning rules that a County, District or Group makes that directly or indirectly contradict rules and POR at National level.

    Some rules, that I know are specifically in place, are clearly contradicting and serve no purpose apart from hindering the movement; some may be due to simple lack of communication or poor training, on the other hand some may be quite valid for safety reasons.

    What are you going to do about banning or controlling local rules and dispelling Urban Myths?

    Thanks

    Frazer,

    I'm passing the buck back to you. Challange the myth and if the rules dont work seek to change them by reason.

    rgds,
