Your council appears to be violating national standards by limiting
the number of MBs a counselor can sign up for. Ours tried that
several years ago, and I appealed to T.J. VanHouten at National.
The latest advancement guidelines book specifically states that
there is no limit to the number of badges a counselor may teach.
By limiting the number that a counselor teaches or that a boy can
take from a specific counselor, the council is modifying the
requirements and national will tell them that what they are doing
is not allowed if you talk to T.J.'s replacement, John Dalrymple, I
My contacting T.J. did not make me too popular with Twin Rivers
advancement committee (of which I was a member at the time), but
they now follow the rules.
