One way to help get applications processed faster is to be sure to put a
fairly short time line on app as to when the Court of Honor is planned.
After waiting over two months for my son's app to be returned, I called the
council exec and noted that planned COH date was just 10 days away. The
packet arrived within the week. Processing can be very fast if only one
council is involved--one was turned around in three days last year. If
multiple councils are involved, things can go very slow. My son was in
three different councils. And, in a jamboree year, things often go slower!
I would suggest you begin with a call to your local council executive and
ask him/her to please check on whether something has gotten mislaid in the
