Bob Caron's post about the Simon Kenton Council's policy on MB reveals a
particularly insular attitude toward merit Badge counsellors. I point to
the second line
> MB counsellors must be registered or recognized by the Advancement
> Committee before a Scout can work with them on Merit Badges.
Does this, in fact, mean that any merit badge councilor a boy works with
must be registered with that council INCLUDING NATIONAL JAMBOREE
COUNSELLORS. Get Serious! They must be in real need of a captive
population for their summer camps to take that attitude. And I seriously
doubt that even National is that insular. National's opinion about
things Internet is well known as probably stems from the fact that they
can't control it but the tide may be a changing.
