I'm curious - which course did you take? It was apparently very different
from the one I took and the ones I've staffed.
It's not the Cubmaster's choice as to how many ticket items are required.
That aspect of the course is the same, regardless of who's running it or
where it's being run.
As for when the items should be completed, I've never seen a Cubmaster
discourage anyone from starting right away. In fact, all my Cubmasters have
left that up to the Den Counselors - and I've never seen a Den Counselor ask
anyone to slow down!
The fact is that a Cub Wood Badge participant shouldn't *complete* the
ticket work in less than six months. The regalia can't be presented any
sooner than that, but I don't see why any staffer would want people to delay
