We have a lot of Scouts taking merit badges virtually now; however, I am concerned about the record tracking for these merit badges. Our tried and true blue cards allowed the Scoutmaster to be part of the system and gave “reciepts” to the Merit Badge counselor and to the Scout.
I have found a fillable PDF blue card online, but once one person signs it, it is locked; and as we all know, there should be at least three signatures on it plus initials.
How is everyone solving this? We are not a troop that does Scoutbook for tracking, and some virtual merit badges are being taken in other Councils.
