First Class Requirement 10

Recommended Posts

This is a stupid requirement.

If a boy isn't bragging about what he did with his troop or what his troop or crew is doing next year, his troop stinks. Inviting even one boy to a stinky troop does no favors to Scouting.

I know boys in my troop who have brought in two or three other boys before the knew about the requirement or after they already achieved 1st class, that means they've probably invited dozens more. Heck, our crew exists because boys wouldn't stop talking about going to Seabase to the girls at their lunch table.


P.S. - We don't dole out recruiter strips either. If a kid asks for one we'd let him/her get it. That hasn't happened in years.
