I'm glad we were all able to be of help. I question this last part. WHY
are these two Scouts waiting until after they have completed their merit
badges to start on their projects? If it is their choice, fine, although
I think it is not the wisest choice. If it is for any other reason then
it is improper. A Life Scout can begin his project immediately after his
BOR. Thus, there is always a MINIMUM of six months during which he can
complete the project. I know too many Scouters who believe that the merit
badges must be done FIRST. Personally, I think the Scout should start the
project IMMEDIATELY upon attaining Life. It is the part that takes the
most time so it should be done FIRST.
