  1. That is a though spot. But at least you know were you are and can deal with it.
  2. Unfortunately, you sir are right. There was no help from no one at unit, council or district level and the scout was to suffer the consequences of a delayed Eagle Scout rank. I just wanted things to be done "by the book" . Now the scout will not be able to include his Eagle Scout rank for his university applications.
  3. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately, we have reached to all levels, including the council, with all the data and rules with no results.
  4. Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately, the facts of the Advancement Guide had been presented to all levels including to council but they have decided not to intervene. It involves the six-months active requirement were the Advancement Guide establishes that it does not requires to be continuous but the SM requires it to be so. On top of that, the scout has been requesting a SM conference for 2.5 months, the SM ignoring the requests and finally the SM gave a date for a month later while performing SM conferences to other scouts that requested the conference within weeks. The council said that it was OK since the SM has "not refused" the SM conference. So, if a SM decides to perform a SM conference 6 or 12 months after being requested, he is not refusing? I am really disappointed with the whole Scouting staff after 7 years of active involvement.
  5. The troop ignored the request for a SM conference for 2.5 months. Then the SM required a continuous six months active period contrary to what the Advancement Guide states that it does not has to be and the scout can "patch up" the six months active period. After the SM setting a date 3.5 months after being requested, the council said that it was OK since the SM was not refusing the SM conference. The council did not even recognized that the SM was wrong by requiring the continuous six-months requirement.
  6. The SM, and all the unit leaders support this, requires that for the Eagle Scout Rank the scout must be actives the last 6 months. The Advancement Guide specifically states that the six months active requirement does not have to be continuous. District and council have not wanted to take action on this matter after being asked for help.
  7. Thanks for your reply. It is sad that no one had the courage to step up and correct the SM, not even at Council level.
  8. We have several issues with the scoutmaster not following the BSA advancement rules. Who should I turn to when everyone in the K3 is OK with that?
