Rotary Rules - The D's

1. No drinking This one can be tough because many countries around the world allow drinking of wine and beer by teenagers.   In Washington, the legal limit is 21 and in BC, the legal age limit is 19.  Our Outbound students often get treated to alchol as part of the social customs of their Host Countries.  However, both Canada and the US allow drinking in a family setting, so a student would not be sent home for having a glass of wine with a family meal.  Going out clubbing and getting wasted is definitely a reason to be sent home immediately.  Safest approach is to avoid alcohol.
2. No drugs Illegal drugs.  Over the counter and prescription drugs are of course OK.  
3. No driving This includes cars, motorcycles, boats and almost any type of motorized vehicle.  However, chores are encouraged, so motorized lawnmowers are excepted from this rule.  
4. No dating Really means not getting into a serious relationship, going steady or having sex.  Group dating as a social event is encouraged.

We also have No Decorating (Tattos, etc.) and No Downloading (filling up the Host's computer)
