Scoutrax is limited (can only print records up to 3 palms)
Does not recognize alt. merit badges (I work with Special Needs scouts)

Troop list, individual advancement
I print out indiv. adv. reports for the boys to take home,
they can then let me know if I am missing something
>How do you collect the data and who enters it into the computer?
I enter it from Our copy of the advancement report
>How much time is spent per month keeping track of how many boys?
20 boys, 1 hr a month
