I thought I'd start a new thread for this topic. We are an lds pack. Lds boys change rank on their birthdays. 8 is wolf, 9 bear, 10 webelos, and 11 is 11 year old scouts (boy scouts just for 11 year olds). We have a boy, who is in a non lds pack, so they advance at the end of the school year. His birthday is in November. He's already wearing his bear neckerchief and slide. Do we say he needs to stay in wolves until his birthday? Or make an exception, allowing him to advance to bears in our pack as well? What if another kid questions this? Just say he's an exception? We can make the exception if we want (I believe), but there's no way he can move on to 11 year old scouts until he's 11. But does it really matter because he's just going to earn stuff with his other pack? (This past year he's only earned a few belt loops and electives with us because he already did everything with the other pack.) It wouldn't be a big deal if bears and wolves were meeting combined as before, but bear leader doesn't like the wolf leader and refuses to work with her. (Should be interesting to see if the wolves accomplish anything this year.)
