National Capital Area Council offers Boy Scout Wood Badge once in the fall
and once in the Spring each year. Both courses are weekend courses. We
almost never have a shortage of folks to fill the courses.
We almost always send strong contingents of Cub Scout Trainers to Cub
Scout Wood Badge Course conducted by the Northeast Region; e.g. 12 out of
64 in a course, and still have a few on the waiting list.
The results of this enthusiasm show. We had over 570 Eagle Scouts last
year. Phoenix had a few more for a similarly sized Council. Greater New
York, however, turned out less than 100. At Cub Scout Trainer Wood Badge,
their Council Patch was not to be seen. Is there a relationship? I'd be
interested in seeing whether National or Regional has any stats to show
the relationship between WB and local training to advancement and quality
