Thanks for the "two ranks at once" info...

Well, I certainly did open the floodgates with that one! ;-)
Thanks to all who replied. I appreciate your help and ideas! Bottom line
is no time should be required between the lower ranks. Opinions vary on
doing the BoR at the same time, or doing two separate BoR. I think I lean
towards two separate. Almost all said to do both SMC's at the same time if
there is enough time and the Scout has enough attention span.
I still believe the Scout Spirit thing is too important to just sign off,
and most people sounded like they disagree with me on this one. The
requirements are there twice for a reason, seems to me to earn them both.
So, I will use SM judgment, and keeping the individual Scouts needs and
performance in mind, decide on a case by case basis.
Again, thank you all for your thoughts and opinions. This is a wonderful
resource, particularly for those of us that are just getting started!
