They said they are cutting one of the electives. I agree, too much book/classroom MBs. As a nerd, it was great/fine with me. But that isn't the program. The more Scouts is like school, the less Scouts we will have. They get enough school at school.
At some point today we should see an amended version of the disclosure statement that the BSA and parties were supposed to have been working on all weekend long.
I HOPE it is "Red-lined" so we can see the exact changes made, but more likely it will simply be an amended version which means having to go line by line to see what changed.
With all due appreciation to the host and moderators, I rarely even look at the other thread. One is enough for me. I'm not even sure I could find it. May I suggest when items are moved you indicate so with a link?
They need to cut one or multiple Eagle Requirement MBs if they add this. I would be ok if it would be added to a Citizenship MB collection and you have to earn 2 of 4. If they do that, I think 7 months would be fine . I feel our required MB program skews to the book/class room type merit badges and this is going to make it worse.
