Somebody mentioned something about submiting a part of the blue card to the
When did this occur? I have a blue card in front of me, and it has three
parts: One part is the councelors record, one part is the troop record, and
the middle part is the scout's record. I cannot find any part that is
submitted to the council.
Sending the troop record to the council can cause headaches come eagle time
when the scout has lost his portion, and the council can't keep track of
anything. Our troop keeps a card file on every active scout. In that file is
the scouts BSA application, and all of the troop blue cards. this keeps the
records in many places. (Councelor, scout, troop, and Council).
And yes, I know that the troop keeps the green copy of the advancement report,
but how often can someone actualy read this third copy?
