The plain meaning of GTA 126.96.36.199 References Contacted at the second paragraph indicates the practice is anticipated and permitted where, “ It is acceptable to send or deliver (emphasis added) to the references an addressed envelope with instructions… “ and, “Scouts may assist with this, but that is the limit of their participation.”
GTA Mandated Procedures and Recommended Practices note at page 2 is instructive where, “Recommended best practices are offered using words like “should,” while other options and guidelines are indicated with terms such as “may” or “can.”
At GTA Section 188.8.131.52 Council Advancement Committee Responsibilities item 13 the Committee is charged with determining methods of collecting Eagle Scout or Quartermaster references. The mechanism describing the Scout’s involvement is compliant and within the discretion afforded the Council Advancement Committee.
