... It is a lot like the young man that came from another troop several years ago and it was time to have a BOR to advance to life. He had the correct # of Merit Badges BUT he did not have the correct number of required. He was counting Swimming,sports ,Lifesaving and Emerg Prepardness all as Required. He was short two required as you cannot count all 4 as required...

And your Scout Exec interpreted the requirement wrong, as I've verified directly with Terry Lawson.wagionvigil wrote:actually it is and was all in the interpretation of the requirements.

I dislike this, because it sets the scout up for confusion later. If your Adv Chair is not doing his job properly he won't catch this. For a boy approaching 18 he may miss Eagle based on this interpretation, if it is not caught in time.

But I had to adjust his dates when he went up for Eagle so that Life was after the next req MB.
