    I'm the OP. On my honor, it's a fairly accurate portrayal. In fact, I'm a little worried that the problems are so specific, someone from the troop may be able to identify it. But maybe that's not a bad thing. One thing I was wrong on, however. She is ATTEMPTING to disallow the Swimming MB. It's actually going on this month and she and instructor are feuding. At this point in time, nothing has been taken away from the kids. She simply threatened to do this, which I don't think she can do if the SM signed the blue cards before they started. The counselor has been approved by Council.

      That swimming thing really has me perplexed. The requirements are almost entirely about DOING. An accomplished swimmer would need to read nothing to earn the badge, except a few safety and FA things.

      What kind of offending information did the instructor provide? Do the boys have the MB pamphlet? Providing additional knowledge beyond what is in the pamphlet is the whole point of having a counselor and not just reading the book.

      Listen, there is no " I don't think she can do this ". She can't.

      I would love to see her try and then have the all the Scouts appeal to Council and embarrass the heck out of her.
