scouts-l Mail Archive for May of 2000: merit badge partials

scenario: Scout has not worked on any merit badges for at least 3 years.
has some "partials" he would like to finish up.
1. he can remember the counselor, has no blue card, has none of the
merit badge projects (as if you would expect this?:) )
2. he can remember the counselor, has the blue card, but no
requirements are signed off on the blue card, no merit badge projects.
do you trust the merit badge counselor to remember these things? or do you
tell the Scout to start over since he has no record of what has been done.
this hituation has a bit of history where the counselors in question for
these badges atleast at that time, were not doing a very good job of
counseling in my opinion. I would like to see the Scout go to a different
counselor to "finish" up the badges. her is a bright kid, and it would be
very little effort for him to do this.
your thoughts would be appreciated.
