I really wish there was a mechanism that allowed the application of BS
repellant without smashing the ingenuity and inquisitiveness of these
groups.  I'm finding the adult leadership of almost 100% of these groups do
not know enough to come in out of the rain.  I hate whatever damage is done
to the groups, their sponsors, etc by the lack of mentoring.  As steely
eyed rocket folks know, regulations,policy and understanding the impact are
crucial components....
