Avery Speed Eagle Scout

Congratulations to Avery Speed! He is Troop 330′s newest Eagle Scout!

It's official... BSA tuck it in!

Effective Oct. 1, 2013, the official stance on the Boy Scouts of America’s uniform policy is that shirts are to be worn tucked in, regardless of whether the wearer is a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturer or adult Scouter. All Sea Scout uniforms are designed to be tucked in except youth dress whites and youth dress blues.

In the past, guidelines have simply stated the uniform wearer should be “neat in appearance”. Neatness includes tucking in the shirt. This update will appear in related resources, such as the uniform inspection sheets, as they are revised and printed.

If your uniform shirt is too small on you to tuck in, go buy a new one! If you need assistance or have a question regarding uniform purchases please contact Mr. Speed.
