I would give the advancemts to them. What is to be gained by witholding
them, besides saving money? Nothing bad could happen by giving them the
recognition they earned. Besides they are the scouts' awards not the
leaders. Give them the awards, smile, and send them on their way!
I like to award no shows at the pack meeting the very next event they show
up at even if it is a den meeting. I've missed payday before and I expected
my check the next day I showed up!<G>
