Although I haven't followed this thread closely, I feel I need to inject
a thought. We must remember that a scout can request a SM conference
anytime and it should be granted. These conferences are not only for
advancement signoff. They are part of the scouts training. It is the
SM's responsibilty to make sure a scout is ready for the BOR. If the
scout is not ready, the SM makes sure the scout gets the resources, help
and direction to prepare him for the BOR. If the scout is ready, the SM
signs off. Either way, scoutmaster conference happens. It is part of
the scouts training process, not an opportunity to "grade" him.
