My Troop has had a number of Scouts earn the Skating Merit Badge using
blades; most of these Scouts are on roller hockey teams in their spare time,
so blades were a natural. The counselors figured that since blades were not
forbidden, and since they are in fact a form of roller skates, they are ok.
We can't expect BSA National to instantly react to all changes in life style;
some intelligence must be shown at the local level also.
