I am curious about what those reasons are for the establishment of a
deadline. If this is a local award, like a contest, then, of course, there
can and should be a deadline for the submission of entries. But, if you are
just talking about earning any of the advancements or recognitions in the
Scouting program, why is it necessary for their to be any deadline outside
those prescribed by the program, which are generally the attainment of a
certain age or the completion of a certain grade? There has never been a
requirement that an entire den achieve anything TOGETHER. Each boy
accomplishes and advances at his own speed.
