Brian, You wrote <there could be an issue when he submits his Eagle Scout
that he joined the troop when he was too young to do so.
After the session, I asked for a clarification on this from our Council
Advancement chairman, and haven't heard back yet. Just wanted to bring this
up. Can someone confirm whether this could be a problem?>
My District Advancement Chairman, seems to think it could. one of the
Scout in our troop (I'm the Advancement Chair so that is where I come in) is
in the process of filling out his Eagle application. As we reviewed the dates
from the Council Office computer (Boo) we noted that he joined Scouts 6/8/94
BUT he earned Swimming, Leatherwork and his Scout Badge on 6/1/94, a week
earlier. So this is either a precocious child or someone made and error...
well it turns out that the person entering dates in the computer in 1994 put
all advancement on the first of the month.
The Scout joined on the 8th went to summer camp 2 weeks later and actually
earned the Scout Badge, swimming and Leatherwork on the 30th. We submitted
this info to the council and they are fixing the computer record to agree
with ours from the troop and the Scouts MB and Advancement Cards.
