At my son's troop's C of H this week, it was announced that 6 boys
completed the requirements for the Consumer Buying merit badge. The
Assistant Scoutmaster said they were working from an old book & no one
realized that this merit badge had been discontinued. He said that it
still 'counts' as a completed badge & presented 4 of the 6 boys with the
badge (they scrounged around at the shop & found 4).
When was this badge discontinued?
Is it correct that it still 'counts' in the number required for Eagle?
Does anyone have two Consumer Buying merit badges for the two boys who
completed the requirements but didn't get it at the C of H? I will, of
course, pay for the badges & postage to mail to me. Please reply by
e-mail if you can provide the badges.
