Members of the List,
I have a question that has come up in our troop. The scoutmaster is
planning a camping trip where he intends to teach the Masonry Merit Badge.
That merit badge was discontined as of September 1, 1995.
Can he leaglly start teaching the merit badge after September 1. He started
planning in at the end of August, but was not mentioned to the committee
until The middle of september.
This guy is a real stickler, regarding policy. I was unable to find a memo,
or policy that said that you cannot start a merit badge after September 1.
I mentioned to him the problem with getting the merit badge, but he has told
me not to worry about it, because he knows the Scout Store employees, and
they told him that they can get them for him, if he needs them.
My whole stake in this, is that I am the advancement Chairman, and I dont
want the scouts to go through the whole MB process, only to find out that
they cannot earn the MB.
Thanks for all your help.
Yours in Scouting,
