Regardless of the many myths, there is no limit on the number of MB a Scouter
can counsel. At a conference at Philmont, a Scouter told me his Council had
a limit of 6, so one year he registers for six, the next year he changes for
six different ones and the third year he switches again for six different.
On the forth year, he switches back to the original six. Now I ask you how
many merit badges is he counseling for? My count is 18. All this process
has done is create a lot of paperwork for a number of folks. I am currently
registered to 30 MBs, but if I teach more than 6 different ones in a single
year it is very unusual--there is life outside of Scouting.
