Amen. These are my sentiments concerning the scheduling of Eagle Courts of
Honor exactly. One other reason for scheduling with a regular C/H other
than increasing the attendance for the Eagle Court is that it ensures that
the other scouts AND THEIR PARENTS see an Eagle Court. This provides a
great incentive to make both generations want the Scouts to achieve Eagle.
