In our District, we've tried for years to create and maintain a District
MB counselor list but every time it gets going, it's "champion" moves
along to another job and it falls into disarray. Bottom line is that
all Troops maintain their own MB Counselor lists, primarily from parents
in the troop or interested folk in the neighborhood.
I remember the Merit Badges I earned from District people more than
those I earned from parents. They were always more demanding, rarely
adding anything extra but never letting me get off easy as the local
parents often did.
