I have been following this thread with interest as it has a direct bearing on
somthing that is happening in my pack at the moment. I am aware of the
rules concerning Cub Scout advancement (I am district training chair
and coverd it with the leaders at the last basic training!) howerver I
now have a boy who already has his Bear working on his Wolf badge!!!!!
The reason for this is the boy "Wants to be like the rest of the Den"
all of whom have the Wolf badge. Rules are important but when I hear
from the Den Leader that the boy was in tears when he was told he should
work on his arrow points for Bear rather than "go back" to Wolf I
decided it was time to streach a point!!!
As to the case under discussion on the List I am in full agreement
�with those who say get the boy into a decent Pack! What is the Unit
Commissioner doing letting a pack operate like this?
I used to be an Eagle.....
