In reply to Scouter Don's statement on MB Counselors, let me submit this for
Item #34505B Troop Committee Guidebook, p 28 "When a boy feels that he
is ready to earn a merit badge, the Scoutmaster will give him the name and
telephone number of an approved counselor from the merit badge counselor
list, provided by the local council or district.
Item #33009 The Scoutmaster Handbook, p123 "1. The Scout obtains from
his Scoutmaster a signed merit badge application and the name of a qualified
counselor for that merit badge."
Item # 33088B Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures, p 17 "From
his Scoutmaster, the Scout obtains a signed merit badge application and the
name of the appropriate merit badge counselor."
Item #33215C Boy Scout Requirements 2000, p22 "Your Scoutmaster will give
you the name of a person from the list of counselors"
It appears to me, the Scoutmaster selects the counselor for the Scout.
