A special group of the Woodbadge Staff assembles at our District Roundtable, and gives a presentation that is educational to the attendees, as well as dignified for the candidate. Only one Scouter is presented his/her beads at a time. The District level is a more personal venue, but usually the Woodbadge Staff invites all of the Scouters from the candidate's Patrol to attend. This has been our District's tradition for years, however, I am sure they would also do a presentation on the Troop level as well. So, find someone to get in touch with the Woodbadge Staff, and ask them to work with the Troop on a presentation. Include everyone you want, but keep it simple. It is NOT an Eagle Ceremony. Since you have multiple candidates, try to be sure something on an "individual" basis is included in the presentation. As inportant as Woodbadge Training is, please remember that Scouting is for the Scouts. Don't make this bigger than your Troop's Court of Honors.
