The Colonial Philadelphia Merit Badge was a MB that was offered as a
Council specific local MB by the Philadelphia Council.
>From what I understand, there was a process whereby a Council
could petition National to offer a local flavor MB. Philadelphia was
able to get this MB through channels and thus was offered by
Philadelphia Council for their council Scouts. There was also a rumor
that Aloha Council was/is working on a surfing MB for the high
percentage of Scouts there who can take advantage of the prevailing
conditions. I have also heard of a Council that petitioned, but was
turned down, a MB that encompassed "Just say No to Drugs" similar
to the Dare program offered in schools. This council even went as far
as producing a prototype that shows the "Just Say No to Drugs" on
the face of the MB.
Any MB's off of that list would be great! I hope the CSP's arrived
safely, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours in the spirit of the trade,
