  • Let's simplify by combining Merit Badges

    I have heard complaints about Scouts earning EVERY Merit Badge (how is that possible? Can't earn them for real. etc.), that some MBs are "too hard" to earn realistically, that some are "automatics" and too easy, that there are too many choices, that some of the classic, old MBs have been canceled as being "out of date".....


    I'd like to suggest some of these complaints (valid or no, another discussion) could be addressed by COMBINING some Merit Badges to good effect...

    "Consider the possibilities" :


    Veterinary Science and Cooking.....

    Aviation and Emergency Preparedness.....

    Golf and Game Design ( gotta be a better way)......

    Coin Collecting and Salesmanship....

    Crime Prevention and Fingerprinting....

          Reminds me of a place we used to pass driving to our former Summer Camp in Northern Wisconsin - Bill's Cafe and Taxidermy. Hmmm......
