The Webelos badge existed in 1981 when I went thru the program (before
the 2-year program was started). You earned both the Webelos Badge
and the AOL in a single year, primarily by earning the Activity Pins.
I'd detail more about what was required, but that book (along with my
other cub books) is still at my parents' house.
