The book also says an objective of the Board is "to make sure that the Scout
has done what he was supposed to do for the rank". Everyone please note that
"Scout" is used; it does not say that the result is used to evaluate the
troop, counselor, council, summer camp, or program - that is an
interpretation which, although valid, is only partial.
I am curious to learn what the above objective means to you, how you
accomplish the objective and how one avoids overlap with "not retesting".
IMO merely ascertaining that all signatures are in the proper place does not
meet the intent of the objective.
