I think it might also be of value to note that if a youth wishes to start a
merit badge, he should FIRST see the Scoutmaster/Advancement person, discuss
the merit badge with him/her, and get a "sign-off" on the blue card.
This accomplishes a couple of things:
1. The youth makes the Adult Leadership aware of a desire to work the merit
2. Provides a method for the Scoutmaster and/or Advancement person to insure
that a suitable merit badge counselor is available OR sets the stage for
3. Provides the advancement person with the information necessary to show
the "start" of a merit badge in their advancement records.
