Still no Lasers Around Here
I got word back from the Council Shooting Sports Committee advisor and Activities Director about my question regarding laser tag. Since the Guide to Safe Scouting verbage was changed and the specific term 'lasers' was dropped but 'paintball' and 'dye' were kept, I wondered how that should be interpreted. Should we get the idea that lasertag is now ok to participate in as a scout unit?

The response from council is that the laser tag reference was dropped due to "the lack of facilities and interest in the sport around the country", but it still is not allowed as an activity.

The council advisor pointed out that the overriding phrase here is that "pointing any type of firearm at any individual is unauthorized".

So, there you go. Still no laser tag for our troop, even though quite a few other units in the area participate in that activity on an annual basis.
