Great post YET you can either read my post above, or better yet the
BoyScout Reqmts Y2K Booklet, the District Advancement Booklet, or
the SM HandBk to MAYBE slightly adjust your thinking and doing on
Snipped from the BS Reqmts
"meaningful service not normally expected of a scout as part of his
"school, religious, or community activities"
SO if you want to follow BSA's guidelines, which you should, you
would not normally accept that community item you currently feel
is acceptable. NOW with flexibility, and good will for a particular
scout, you might from time to time accept it. For example the first
time the scout ever got involved, or for some unusual situations.
NOW for other things, like Merit Badges, things are a bit more like
you described i.e. Double Duty and a 2nd Brand New Stamp Collection
or a new 200 word spanish, or chineese translation isn't always
prior to meeting a Merit Badge or Award Requirement. Sometimes yes,
when skills have disappeared as evaluated by the Counselour, which
hate to say it does happen. "Mr Jim in 2nd grade I translated a full
letter in Cantoneese, or German does that count?" "No Davey"
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
