I feel a bit like a guy running down the street yelling that a
house is on fire, and when he turns arround to show someone
where the fire WAS, it is already out! The council had no
problem in accepting a Correct date, with new paper work
submitted my the troop. The just would NOT accept the applcation
the way it was, with not enough time between First Class and
Star. The guy that WAS advancement chair was NEVER trained
for the job, but had the time to do paperwork and make trips
to the council office. The current guy is much better, PLUS
we are now using the a computer program to track advancements,
and provide the SM and scout, a printout for every BOR. The
error was corrected the NEXT day, before even the first reply
was back to me, but NO BODY TOLD ME the fire was out!!!
I HAd to find out by driving down to the council office, and
asking my good friend the NEW Asst council exec to help get
the problem corrected. HE says, what problem? YOUR sons
application is just waiting for the BOR next Tuesday!!!
BUt, I did get some excellent feed back for potential
FUTURE problems. As always, thanks for you input.
