Sorry to disagree with you on the item. But about last spring the
councils were told to only keep advancement records for ? years. By the
time that the first notes came across Scouts-L about this our council
had already thrown away everything before 1993. They said they didn't
have room to store them and they never thought that the units might want
them for historic records.
