I thought the merit badge counselor was "recommended" to the youth. By that
I mean, the SM gives the boy a copy of the MBC list to look up the MBC's for
a particular badge.
In our district we are fortunate enough to have more than one person for
several of the merit badges. The boys in our troop are given the MBC list to
look over and will write down the names and numbers from that list. Then
they make the contact. It is not so much that the MBC's are assigned as it
is their names are copied from the list.
It is the boy's decision as to which counselor he chooses, of course, based
on the availability of the MBC. If there is only one MBC available for the
badge, his options are, obviously, limited.
