Two questions here. This morning, while talking to another SM he told me
that several Scouts had just completed Masonry MB which was canceled almost
two years ago. They started working on it about 2 1/2 years ago and just
finished it. Now, as I understand it a Scout can work on a badge until his
18th birthday. So he could have completed Conservation MB in 1974 or 75, as
long as he *started* it before 1972, correct? Or are canceled MBs an
exception to the "no time limit" rule for completing badges?
Second question. If this hypothetical Scout of yours earned Conservation in
1972 isn't he a little old to be going for Eagle? ;-)
