also, since beltloops should only be earned once (some exceptions for Webelos
requirements), by awarding the loops too soon, the boys may actually miss
out on some of the experience of learning that sport or academic program.
also, unless you have a rich pack, those beltloops can add up quick!
WHOA! There is nothing that says a belt loop can only be earned only once!
Belt loops can be earned multiple times. Your Pack may have that as a Pack
rule, but that's not what the national program says! Our Pack, as a cost
cutting method, only _awards_ the Belt Loop once, but we recognize multiple
earners in our newsletter along with the first timers. Remember, the Belt
Loops are like those tasting spoons at Baskin & Robbins Ice Cream shops. They
are meant to give the boys a taste of (and for) a sport. If they want to go
for several tastes, great! And maybe they need to be encouraged to try for
side note..i brought up at a trainers meeting that if the boys earn the
communicator, artist, scientist, and citizen activity pin...they pretty
much qualify for the academic beltloop. showman (music) would have to be
expounded on a little, but it too would classify. our training chair thought
this would be good for me to present at workshop.
Hey great idea, I hadn't thought of that one yet.
