Stamp Collecting, one of my favorites...only 919 Scouts awarded in 2019.
How many books do you think they printed? There are five sitting in our Scout Shop (although I'm not sure they are current versions.)
(I did not mention Bugling, another favorite, at the bottom of the list, because it is incorporated into Music MB pamphlet; 12882 awarded.)
I was told last year by the Director of the IRS Frenso Center that they use the first operating software post key-punch cards - the 1959 version of COBOL - in 1960's computers. Explains why they are the best part of two years behind - that and funding being cut 30% over the last ten years. "And then the camel died."
That would be a challenge, especially this year. Kudos to anyone that gets it.
I liked that outdoor activity group. Earn all those and you should get a different patch. How about calling it the Outing Award? Or the 3/4 of scouting award. Well, not sure of gardening MB, but the rest are a lot of fun.
