  1. The scout is my son, I am the Troop Advancement Coordinator. The counselor for this badge was from a merit badge clinic 1 yr ago. I know my son completed all but those listed as "needed". My son is trying to contact the counselor, to no avail. My question was not about teaching the scout but more a matter of procedure. When the blue card comes up for review at Eagle, will the validity of the card be questioned. Is the way in which counselors sign off cards to be adhered "letter of the law" or is flexibility allowed. If we went by "a scout is trustworthy" I guess we wouldn't need blue cards at all. I have processed many blue cards at this point and the counselors are typically quite good at itemizing requirements and noting which have been completed and which haven't, which is what made this one seem so aberrant. Our troop's normal practice is to have partials signed off by the counselor that did THOSE requirements. The remaining incompletes are fulfilled with a new counselor with a new separate blue card.
  2. I received a blue card and the MB counselor only wrote on the requirements sections "Needs #4", but did not list and initial/date any of the requirements that the scout completed. Can this be considered sufficient, or do I need to track the counselor down to get it filled out correctly? Thanks!
  3. I just joined my Troop with my youngest boy, and was a Cub leader for 6 yrs. We started using ScoutBook last year in my Pack. I will be Advancement Chair in my Troop now, and want to use scoutbook there. I heard there may be other apps/programs coming up soon? Also that BSA is updating the internet advancement/roster page? Curious what anyone else is using currently. I used PackMaster for several yrs prior to scoutbook as well; I find scoutbook more accessible and user friendly.

    New from Seattle, need help as Advancement Chair

    My previous Pack implemented scoutbook during my final year as Cubmaster. I'm a big fan of it and would like to start using it at my current Troop (for both advancement s well as the calendar, messaging functions etc). I heard there may be some other similar online apps/programs coming up soon- anyone have any news on this?
