>Rob Morley asked whether or not one could earn discontinued merit badges
after September 1st:
Our council advancement chairman attended Philmont tranining this summer on
advancement and I invited her to speak at our September Roundtable to update
us on the new mb changes. At the Roundtable, she indicated that as long as
the mb book/counselor/badges were available, that any MB could be earned.
She did not indicate any timeline limitation as to how long you could
continue working on discontinued MB's. Her response to my question, was that
as long as the materials are still available, the mb can be earned. Don't
know if this is "official national policy," or just her own interpretation
which, does make a lot of sense. Hope this helps.
