You're right! It isn't really true. You are registered in two positions related
to troop operation. I hope you are active in both. I also assume that you are
registered by the district, but that's not important.

You are authorized to wear the troop committee patch.

You must (and only you can) answer the following question: Are you prepared to
make a commitment to work in one of your registered positions? This commitment
is required for your Woodbadge ticket. If the answer is 'yes,' then by all
means attend the next course that you can. Be prepared to learn a great deal and
bring it back and put it to good use. If you are one of the very lucky ones you
will have the priviledge of being an Antelope, too.
