    Once one gets into these grandiose ceremonies to hype accomplishments, it will certainly rip on those boys that have spent 5 years in Cubs and come up a pin short, kinda like running out of time for the Eagle candidate. 18 years can handle it better than 11 year olds.

    So if one doesn't get finished with AOL before Blue Gold they don't get it? What happens if they earn it later, yet before they turn 11?

    So they don't get an AOL ceremony, but they get the patch? Fortunately the Troop can do a cross-over for him.

    Try and remember, this is for the boy's, not for the convenience of the adults.

      Exactly this is JUST for AOL

      and to my PLEASURE the boy cracked down Sunday and was able to do ALL requirements for AOL. I did mentioned to him that these are things you should ALWAYS know!!! I do kinda blame this more on the Leadership of Webelos than really on him.

        Your question, and the whole conversation, centers around Readyman; you're missing something. Your scouts, and the Boy Scouts involved, will gain much more than important first aid skills. Your program exists to prepare these young men for Boy Scouts. The Webelo scouts will be interacting with, observing, and learning from, Boy Scouts, in the field. Don't under value the experience of simply participating in a troop activity.
