We have 2 Eagle Courts of Honor scheduled 1 week apart. The first consists
of 4 Eagles and the second consists of 2 Eagles. The problem is that the
parents of the two Eagle Court of Honor feel concerned that no-one will show
up from the Troop for their ceremony. The Troop has 81 scouts. I allow the
parents of the Eagle Scouts to select their own dates for the Court of Honor
and I adjust my schedule to be there. I don't want 6 scouts getting their
Eagle at the same time as it take away from the importance of the day. Any
suggestions as how to handle this? Neither group wishes to change their
dates. (Nov. 5 & Nov. 11) Dec. is getting into the Holidays and no-one wants
their son to recieve his Eagle in 96. What's a scoutmaster to do!
P.S. One of the Eagles is mine.
