<After reading Jason Cruse's response to Don Izard's posting, I have
<a question for the group.
<Do many Troop's work on merit badges at meetings?
I know several that do as you noted was so uncommon.
Usually the meeting is extended from 60 or 90 minutes to
90 to 120 minutes to accomodate a 20-30 minute merit badge
classes. Some are, one on one, others are with a group.
Some troops extend their meeting times to accomplish other
things like the PLC or a Troop Committee Meeting yet I kind
of like the extended time being used for Merit Badges since
it includes more diversity.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
