As a MBC I received an email today from my councils advancement committee with the following attachment:
MERIT BADGE GROUP INSTRUCTION EVENT – Application Form
This is a form I need to fill out and get approval if I am going to have a Merit Badge class that has more than 5 Scouts in it.
I need to attach a Draft copy of the event flyer or information sheet at a minimum of 2 weeks prior.
Along with the form there are 2 pages of policy on
Do any other council's have this?
Have Merit Badge days, fairs, midways, clinics, workshops gotten so prevalent that this is needed?
Personally I have never taught at one of these nor do I like working with more than 3 or 4 Scouts at a time
