Our troop handles the problem by using our own form. We took the
Individual Scout Record form and created our own version which we can
modify as needed and print off. We took the merit badge list as it
appeared on that form at that time and have kept those numbers. As
badges are dropped or added, we add new numbers and do not re-use the
numbers of dropped badges. The merit badge numbers are no longer in
numeric order when listed alphabetically, but who cares. The main
thing is that we do not have to re-do the records constantly. I should
also add that we print off the list of merit badges with their
corresponding numbers separately from the Individual Scout Record form.
Probably, the next time that we revise the form, we will drop the merit
badge list from the form itself. It just takes up room on the form and
I don't know why it needs to be on each copy.
