I am deeply disturbed by the position, "National-supported" or not, that
registration is sufficient to fulfill the Eagle requirement for being

Amen brother! My Eagle Badge is shedding tears on this one. Has National
become so numbers driven that all that matters is the number of Eagles
produced each year? Over the years, my troop has invoked a 50% attendance
rule on several Life Scouts who had become less than active and in every
case, the boy has come back and become a productive member of the troop and
always for a much longer period of time than what was required to satisfy
the scout spirit requirement to make Eagle. We simply can not continue to
dilute the product. This thread is a repeat of the "raising the Eagle bar"
thread that we beat to death several weeks ago.
