Check your registration cards. You are a member of the BSA until the end of
your charter year. This would entitle you to wear the uniform.
Once a youth turns 18, he can no longer work on rank advancement, etc.
I would consider a person in this situation in limbo: A member of the BSA
with no authority or responsibility.
Our unit has had no problems in the past with a new 18 year old former youth
member paying only the $1.00 'transfer fee' along with the adult leader
For the comment submitted about the BOR awarding an Eagle to a non-BSA
member: This really is a moot point. If the person was a Scout while
fulfilling the requirements, he deserves the BOR and, assuming he passes
BOR, be awared the rank.
